Greenhouse-Inspired Glass Summer Home
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.
“The Kekkilä Green Shed creates the heart of any kitchen garden. The Green Shed is a unique combination of a traditional garden shed and a green house. It can be used for small scale growing, storing garden tools as well as leisure and enjoyment. The beautiful and practical Green Shed is the result of long-term co-operation between designers and garden experts.”
“The Green Shed comes in two pre-fabricated sizes: Sprout and Zeal. The sheds are designed to suit all gardening dreams and garden types. They can all be built using the same modules, and there are additional modules for further customizing your shed. Due to this modular structure, the sheds are easy to assemble.”
“Made in Finland, the Kekkilä Green Sheds are durable and of a high quality. They are constructed using Finnish pine and toughened safety glass. Paint your assembled shed any color you like to really make it yours.”
