garden den

Anything pre-fabricated had such bad connotations for years, and suddenly they have become incredibly fabulous.
Burd Haward Architects (UK) have designed this 'garden den' for writers,
but personally I think everyone needs one,
somewhere to disappear to,
I would call mine the 'magazine den' fill it with magazines, cushions and cups of tea,
close the door and you're in your private heaven!
it is also designed so plants will grow up over the external mesh,
so it starts off looking like this...

and ends up looking like this,

they also do this zero carbon pre-fabricated luxury holiday cabin that is entirely self sufficient for remote areas...

and this outdoor classroom....
