Inspiration: Garage Conversion – The Shed Residence

July 17, 2012

The Shed Residence by Richard Peters Associates.

This tiny garage in Sydney, Australia has operated as a motorcycle repair shop, secondhand washing machine warehouse, a builder’s workshop, and most recently a studio for local artists. Its most recent incarnation is the conversion into a two bedroom, two batroom home.

Tucked away at the end of a lane in the Sydney suburb of Randwick, close to The Spot and in walking distance to Coogee beach, is this 74 sqm simple brick industrial structure built in 1890 by two Irish blacksmiths to house their coach building business.

Having grown up in the area, the owners knew the building well and when it came up for sale in 2003, took a leap of faith and invested in a project that presented an exciting opportunity. They decided to convert it into a smaller, sustainable and more efficient way to live, while challenging the convention that ʻbigger is betterʼ.

The building has a north-facing roof that has been set up with solar panels to harness the sun, there are operable doors and windows from north to south to allow good cross ventilation so there is no need for air conditioning, while the thermal mass of the concrete floor holds the winter sun to warm the building in the colder months. Along the southern wall a full bank of storage on ground level and on the first level has been installed as an effective insulator from the adjoining passage.

Our first post. Let’s get the ball rolling by featuring a particular favourite of mine.
Here we have an Oast House for sale in Peasmarsh – a village near to Rye, East Sussex. An Oast House is a building containing an oast (a kiln for drying hops); usually has a conical or pyramidal roof.

This detached twin roundel grade II listed oast house  has been subject to a high quality  conversion combining the traditional character of the building with modern contemporary living. It is set off a country lane in lawned gardens which back onto open farmland. Within the garden there is a detached guest cottage as well as several useful outbuildings.

Peasmarsh offers a good range of local services including a large independently owned supermarket, a primary school, two public houses and the Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul. The Ancient Town and Cinque Port of Rye is located 6 miles away and is famed for its historical associations. The town offers a range of local shops, restaurants and train services on the Brighton to Ashford line with fast connections to London (37 minutes) and the Continent.

Included in the images above are before and after shots of the conversion. Just the painting of the window frames has transformed the look of the building.

The above property is on the market at £995,000
