70 Park Street Bike Shelter
Somerville, MA

This bike shelter replaced an existing, deteriorating, metal bike shelter located in the back corner of a multi-unit residential property. The goal of the new shelter was to provide adequate bike space in a design that was functional, contemporary, and built within a limited budget.  The main design feature of the new shelter was an angled, double segmented roof, cantilevered off (3) 6x6 wood posts. While providing shade and protection from the elements the roof design also provides a sculptural quality to the shelter. The shelter was built from pressure treated wood covered in an opaque brown stain with tan corrugated plastic panels used as roofing material.
