The re-purpose of an existing tin shed to a studio/ office in the inner-city suburb of Redfern, Sydney, Australia by architect Raffaello Rosselli.

The shed in its current state was dilapidated and structurally unsound. The original tin shed (click above thumbs) was disassembled and set aside while a new timber frame was erected. The layers of corrugated iron accumulated over generations of repair were reassembled on three facades. The materials have been left raw and honest, in the spirit of its industrial economy.
