Sleep Shed is an interesting work by Callum Bell , intended to be a "semi practical habitation, an overspill area for guests". Here's what Callum says about it: "Moulded to the boundaries and crafted to fit the unused back courtyard of the cottage at Admiralty House, Plymouth, Devon the shape of Sleep Shed mimics the contours of the surrounding architecture; growing to fill the space succinctly, the roof imitating the jumble of architecture surrounding it. Sleep Shed embellishes concepts within domesticity, elaborating on tenures of thought around the practicality and familiarity of home and its physical space. An in-between structure in an in-between place, heightened in concept and possible use of sleep; it acts as a ‘metaphor for the restorative power of slumber'."
