Dream house – Borrowed Blog

November 12, 2011

Um, Yes please!  I don’t want to be the one to squeegee the roof every other day, but I’d sign on for one or more of these on my vacation/summer/retirement home site in a heart beat.  Enclose the bathroom around back in the “shed” and you got everything you need to sleep out,  in the open but protected from rain, bugs and things that creep around in the night.  I might need to add a screen or two so I could get fresh air, but I love this simple concept… plucked from the pages of dornob.com this borrowed blog was way to cool to not repost. read on…

Fashioned from a prototype prefab garden greenhouse, this garden shed sleeps two by night and engages its gorgeous natural environs on all sides by day.

Ville Hara and designer Linda Bergroth collaborated to craft the non-residential variant, while the latter creator went on to add solar panels, storage spaces and recycled brick steps to make a miniature glass house (or at least: three-season bedroom) for herself as well.

In standard Scandinavian style, a series of cookie-cutter pieces can come together in various ways – in this case, the core gable-roofed, wood-and-glazing element opens up views on three sides while shed-element clutter is kept to the back of the site, away from the waterside view.

Inside, a simple pine wood floor and single beside lamp and suspended light fixture keep the entire composition clean and minimal, focusing the eye and mind more on the lovely natural exterior and few elements (a vintage record player and some potted plants) of additive decor.
