GARAGE ANNEXE SELF BUILD
Located at the end of their garden the client required a building that could become a garage, a workshop, a home office and a place for guests to stay. The construction method is an exercise in celebrating the logic and clarity of prefabrication that would allow the client to build the majority of it himself. Conceived as a kit of parts, the building’s steel frame combines modular wall components, roof trusses, battens and purlins, all of which can be assembled on site and clad with SIPS panels and a rain-screen of White Oak. This rain-screen wraps the walls, roof, and soffit and is expressed as a singular element. Large Rodeca polycarbonate operable doors open up to the garden.
