Text description provided by the team*
This experimental shed is a hybrid between a cabinet and a garden hut. It is basically an outdoor garderobe, thus we call it the Gardenrobe. This 20-by-4-foot structure serves many functions, including varying-size storage spaces, a chicken coop, a rainwater collector, and, because of the small solar panel, a source to power the light, and, of course, charge your gadgets.
This unique building is made up of wooden beams and waterproof construction plywood. Since Gardenrobe is anchored on ground screws, it can be disassembled and reassembled easily, wherever you prefer it to stand. This is made possible by an ingenious, red-painted frame which supports the lightweight roof while at the same time providing the structure into which different storage boxes. Individual parts of the frame are secured by nuts and bolts. By far, the dominant feature of Gardenrobe is its raised pigeon loft, which gives this horizontal shed a practical vertical counter balance.
Gardenrobe proves that even such a common and practical structure as a shed can be creatively designed and become an architectural landmark in your garden.
Gardenrobe is the prototype that is part of our ongoing research into the feasibility of recycled environmentally friendly small houses. This concept is based on our long-term experience with tiny house construction, creating easy to follow plans and books for DIY constructors.
