Top Left: The unique detailing of the carport emphasize its furniture like quality, a reference to the clients interest in art and design. The overlap of the wood slats add additional detail to the structure, while avoiding mitering of the dense wood species.
Top Right: The distinctive volumes of the storage shed and carport structure are emphasized by the shift in placement of the storage volume with the carport ceiling plane extending slighting above its roof. The polycarbonate wall of the shed serves the dual purpose of collecting borrowed natural light in daylight hours while turning the shed into a lantern at dusk.
Bottom: A thickened support plane on one side of the carport creates a bench that also functions as storage. The ipe wood cladding and exterior lighting contribute to the sense of warmth for the outdoor living space. The artwork, a bespoke feature of the carport, was created by artist Teresa Cole.
