In this first year project I was asked to design a shed for a specific purpose. I could chose that purpose, and so I decided to design a shed for a child who's family had split up. I designed this bedroom/gang-hut for the child to have their own place to escape to and if they wish sleep. It can be towed behind a car from home to home. I originally wanted to make a bike be able to tow the shed but the shed evolved too much and became much to heavy for a child to minover . I used the idea of separation within the shed. this is seen in the cracking effect of the windows surrounding the shed and in the sofa bed which transforms from a bed to a sofa through a form of separation.
