THE SHELTER_ A cabanon in a rear garden



The 4m height pitched roof shed has to be enlarged under a building regulations that only allow a maximum height of 2.5m. The solution proposes a balanced composition, extending the original roof towards the floor and cutting the new surface at 2.5m height. Using the same materiality we add unity to the volumetry. Excavating we gaining enough height to continue the roof slope with the original´s angle. The turn of the plan brings the south light into the space and the folded roof reach the floor allowing views from the house towards the garden.
