A few months ago, we were contacted by an artist who has a 1950s Mid Century Modern style home in Tampa who wanted a studio that would complement her home. The Historic Shed MiMo shed was adapted to meet her needs and to match elements from her home.

MiMO Architecture Florida
The Ballast Point home, built in 1957, has a low sloped roof, brick and T1-11 exterior and fixed windows that follow the roof slope.
In order to maximize the space in the studio and allow for the transoms above the door, the front wall was raised to 9' high, and the rear wall to 8'.

The shed roof line is followed by the side triangular transoms.
The front elevation features a pair of single light French doors, two transom windows, and a 4' roof extension.

Historic Shed was contacted by an artist in Ormond Beach, Florida to design and build a unique shed to be used as an art studio.  The studio shed incorporates a salvaged wood door with sidelights, a dutch door and lots of windows. To top it off, it has a fun color scheme, perfect for the beach location.
