The Main Street House by SHED Architecture & Design Stimulates Solace

The owners of The Main Street House were looking for a home that encouraged refuge and quiet time, which is what the people behind SHED Architecture and Design aimed to encourage with this design.

While windows are still plentiful in the house, they are not overpowering. Many modern houses being designed today come with an array of windows, but the couple living in The Main Street House were really looking for a space with more privacy. The exterior appears to be made from metal sheeting, giving it a more industrial look. Once inside the house, it's clear that space is not limited in this refuge-encouraging design. Many of the rooms are extremely open, and even with less windows, the natural light still streams through in plentiful amounts, allowing the couple to enjoy the outside in the confines of their home.
