This project was a competition entry for an artist's in residence shed. Conceived as a new outbuilding for the Maltings in Bruton, the design created a calm atmosphere that is warm, comfortable, light-filled and highly flexible. The shed is a top-lit lightweight structure formed from laminated shuttering ply on a 600x600mm grid. Infill panels of structured multi-wall polycarbonate sheets in standard sizes of 600x2400mm form the main envelope cladding. Further flexibility is provided by movable bookshelves that also sit within the 600x600mm grid. It is the intention that the artist or artists using the space reconfigure the space using the bookshelves as movable partitions. Openness and connectivity to the exterior is provided through large format sliding panels and hinged doors.
