Affected Shed

Affected Shed is a family house with its functions distributed between two ordinary masonry structures. A two-story blade of circulation slices through both buildings, pinning them together while cutting up the interior spaces of each. Acute angles turn courts between the wings into visually interesting spaces, and interfere with rectangular room layouts to generate a zone of unusual nooks and crannies, with concealed cabinets and hiding spots meant to capture a child's imagination.

Facades are animated with optically complex materials and systems: expanded metal screens, fibercement louvers, frosted polycarbonate walls, and crawling vines protect the structure from excessive sunlight, while reducing the the outside world to a colorful, blurry abstraction.
