Bark Design: Shedworkers

While we tend to picture shedworking as the preserve of one or two-person bands, there's absolutely no restriction on how many people can work in a shedlike environment. Here is the gorgeous steel and glass pavilion which Bark Architects designed for themselves, perched on four steel footings between two Bloodwoods and featuring fixed glazing on three sides with the fourth a plywood-clad box. Here's what they say about it:
The main linear workspace was conceived as an open verandah with compactly scaled service spaces plugging in along its length... A mezzanine serves as a retreat by accommodating architecture books, quiet reading, sleeping or bathing. The solidity of its form is punctured by glass slots, providing cropped horizontal views of the hinterland and coast.
