Dynamite Shed

Location Ketchum, Idaho
Design Principal Tom Kundig

Originally built circa 1880, this adaptive reuse project transforms an historic stone dynamite shed into a mixed-use building to serve as the local office with an apartment above for Schuchart/Dow Construction.

Hardware from the Tom Kundig Collection—oversized roller wheels on the desk—lend a contemporary accent to the historic shed.

The concept for the update centers on the re-use of materials that came about from the renovation itself, and the blending of those materials with a select palette of contemporary insertions of steel and fir boards. The integration of old and new combines original 3-foot-thick stone walls, reclaimed wood boards and integral stair and wall detailing within a simple, exposed structure.

It's amazing what you can do with it. It's a tough, malleable, morphable material. Almost anything you can imagine, you can fabricate out of steel. It allows you to explore and to experiment…I think that's one reason sculptors use steel a lot.
