Extreme Repurposing in Sydney, Tin Shed Edition
Australian architect Raffaello Rosselli celebrates the patchwork beauty of corroding steel by repurposing a humble tin shed into an office and studio in the inner-city suburb of Redfern, Sydney.
Rosselli preserves the memory of a neighborhood’s industrial past by saving the layers of corrugated iron, which had accumulated over generations of repair, from its last remaining industrial shed. Dilapidated and structurally unsound, the shed was disassembled in order to replace the structure and to add windows. Reassembling the patchwork of tin onto the new structure, Rosselli successfully turned a humble tin shed into an office and studio.
