Irving Smith Jack Architects designed a couple of “sheds” that couldn’t be more different from the garden-variety types you’ve seen before. Set in a coastal town near Gisborne, New Zealand, ISJ Architects’ offSET Shed House is a modern beach home that pays homage to the vernacular architecture as well as the site’s former shed, a simple and much smaller building built by the clients’ grandfather in the 1940s. In addition to its contemporary upgrade, the family home was created with passive design principles to take advantage of the site’s winter sun and cooling summer winds.
