The Über Shed is a new work-shed / rural retreat on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. The brief was for a functional shed with a work bench area, to house farming equipment, and a simple, attached retreat with a bathroom, kitchenette and sleeping area. The client wanted a practical shed for their farm which also included an area he and his family could use when coming to the farm for the day or short visits; an uncomplicated and aesthetically pleasing space which had both the pragmatism of an outbuilding and the appeal of a living space. Furthermore, it had to be sympathetic with, and take advantage of, the amazing surroundings of huge gum trees, native ferns and amazing views looking over the Peninsula.
