Architect Visit: A “Posh” Potting Shed by Helen Lucas

For this “posh potting shed,” Edinburgh architect Helen Lucas used a simple palette of materials: cedar boarding (for the external cladding), aluminum (roof and roof structure), and glass (double-glazed timber-framed windows and doors). Cleverly, the aluminum roof extends over the kitchen back door, providing a covered route on rainy days.
