Take the form of the garden shed, re-design and re-imagine it for a new use. Allow that new interior use to influence the exterior forms.
Dancing is a much loved past time of mine and is an activity which I use to de-stress. With this in mind, the theme for my shed is dancing. I wanted to create a space to allow dancers to express feeling in dance. The design I have created accommodates most types of dancing, although, this shed in particular may be used specifically for Ballet. I looked in particular to the shapes of Ballet dancers and their costumes for the composition of my designs. My aim was to create a shed which incorporates movement into the design either literally or in the use of structure.
Many dance styles incorporate dancing with another person. Another partnership idea I considered as an interesting concept is the act of practice and performance, both are fundamental in dance training. I wondered if I could create a space for both men and women who could use it as both a performance and practice space. I used the experience of practicing, performing and being an audience member when designing the studio.
