Best Cabin/Summerhouse in Shed Of The Year: This quirky and industrial style cabin owned by Abigail Walker of Pangbourne in Berkshire has drawn influence from a Nissen hut. Combined with her love of vintage style and all things mid-century, this corrugated steel den is fully insulated and lined with an airy feel.
The home’s front façade features an anodized aluminum and glass curtain wall by Kawneer that's framed by Vic West black corrugated metal panels. The board-formed concrete on the exterior enables passive solar absorption, allowing optimal heat retention on cold winter days. The metal and concrete exterior cladding offers cohesive dialogue with the neighboring industrial sheds and commercial buildings.
