The social shed

The Social Shed is designed for a typical through site in Buffalo, New York and is based on the basic principles of Visitability. The Social Shed House brings the focus of the users inwards to the social space instead of out to the barren walls of neighboring houses. The house is comprised of three linear compartments: a utility/guest space on the near side, a well lit, open social space in the middle, and a homeowner space on the far side. The uses of two different sloping shed roofs create a unique section with an ability to allow natural daylight and direct sunlight.
