The client sought a high quality, energy-efficient and low-cost building to serve as a house, library and gallery.Save this picture!© Greg StorrarAn existing agricultural shed on the site – once a container for tools and tractors – is now a container for a lifetime collection of books and art. The steel frame and ground slab have been reused and enlarged, retaining the original form of the shed. Newly clad in varied widths of shot-blasted timber and galvanised steel fins, the rhythmic facade reads like the bark of the silver birch that characterise the site.Save this picture!Ground floor planThe surrounding landscape is pulled into the building’s two principle double-height volumes through large axial openings. A long gallery, orientated east-west with the site’s long tree-lined approach, draws visitors in from afar and frames the rising and setting sun from within. A tall south-facing library, bounded by mirror-backed shelving and a light-modulating canopy, evokes a forest clearing in the heart of the house.Save this picture!© Greg StorrarSave this picture!© Greg StorrarThe house is a journey of interconnected spaces that alternate between the grand and the intimate. The spacious library is wrapped by a modestly sized living room and three bedrooms, whilst behind the long gallery a thick wall conceals staircase, utility room, and storage. The interplay between single and double height space helps create a great sense of volume and light in a compact plan. The home is part country cottage, part classical villa.Save this picture!SectionsThe design accommodated the use of traditional construction techniques and low-cost materials to ensure a challenging budget could be met. Through selective reuse, refined detailing, and the holistic integration of structural, environmental and spatial strategies, ‘Old Shed New House’ is a building that aspires to use the least to make the most.Save this picture!© Greg StorrarProject gallerySee allShow lessTouch It, Smell It, Feel It: Architecture for the SensesArticlesBIG Reveals Skyscraper Design for First Project in South AmericaUnbuilt Project Share Area:  210 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Greg Storrar+ 26Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Integration Lead Architects: Year:  Photographs “COPY” Rodrigues Associates CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•United Kingdom CopyAbout this officeTonkin LiuOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsUnited KingdomPublished on October 15, 2018Cite: “Old Shed New House / Tonkin Liu” 15 Oct 2018.
