Shed Style refers to a style of architecture that makes use of single-sloped roofs (commonly called "shed roofs").
The style originated from the designs of architects Charles Willard Moore and Robert Venturi in the 1960s. Their works were influential to the style that would include the Sea Ranch in California (Moore), and the Vanna Venturi House (Venturi). Shed style architecture became very popular in the 1970s and 1980s.
Common stylistic features of shed style include overall asymmetry with strong lines, one- to two-story height, and seamless roof and wall intersection.
