1800′s Sydney Shed to Residence: Adaptive Re-use

The 1800′s shed originally served as a workshop and then a studio for a local artist before the current owners realized the  opportunities its brick shell offered. They teamed up with Richard Peters Associates to turn this little piece of the past in to a simple single-family residence. The quaint size and practical design strategy allowed for strategic placement of openings throughout the shed resulting in a completely passive home requiring no heating or cooling.
