As the saying goes you never judge a book by its cover well I guess the same rules apply for this shabby looking shed thats covered in rusty colored tin that I can’t seem take my eyes off. The iconic Australian structure titled the Tin Shed created by Raffaello Roddelli is located in Sydney, Australia on the corner of a residential neighborhood. Prior to being turned in to an unsuspecting office/studio the windowless and structurally unsound building was nothing more than an eye sore that you tried to looking directly at .
Although the original shed was disassembled and a new steel frame was added to increase the structural integrity Raffaello decided to use a lot of the raw materials from the shed to keep the memory of the neighborhoods industrial past. I think the colorful sheet metal adds character to the neighborhood and keeps outsiders guessing on whats going inside . A great idea would be to turn the shed into an art gallery . Just from the looks alone I am sure they would get a lot of foot traffic.
