Project Description

Outbuilding / Merit
“Simple.” “Direct.” “Minimal.” “Beautifully proportioned.” The jury’s enthusiasm for The Shed was as clear and straightforward as the building itself, which serves as a landscape barn for Curved House (see page 88). To speed construction, architect Matthew Hufft’s bolt-together steel framing system consists of sections small enough for a single person to handle. “We made it in our shop in Kansas City, put it on a truck, and assembled it in about a week’s time,” Hufft says. An oak-planked rainscreen shell and polycarbonate-clad end walls yield a structure one judge called “evocative of an agricultural building, without being imitative.” —Bruce D. Snider
