The Steel Shed is part art gallery, part private club, and part automotive temple. The genesis began with a client who wanted a special place to safely store high performance automobiles.
We extracted materials and finishes common to automotive design and gave them new life as elements displaying the vehicles. The glossy concrete floor provides a clean backdrop for display, the perforated steel panel walls hint at cross drilled rotors and perforated tailpipes. The curved track that holds the wash bay curtain esse's in such a way that conjures thoughts of alpine roads and throaty exhaust notes resonating in the wind. The giant red fan in the center screams of the Italian masters of speed and provides cooling to the space like a giant radiator. Scattered lights are dance like sparks ejected from an exhaust port during an aggressive corner and the backlit translucent polycarbonate panels leave us wondering just what lies beyond.
The Steel Shed is more than just a place for finely crafted vehicles, its a petrolhead's temple to diving exhilaration.
