Rearrangeable Pop-Up Garden Shed

The collaborative design between architect Vile Hara and designer Linda Bergroth is a stunningly simple design that offers an array of customizations. The prefabricated Garden Shed is a greenhouse and storage space that can easily be assembled with just a screwdriver. It’s constructed out of Finnish pine and safety glass and also includes automatic openers to help control temperature regulation.

The Garden Shed is designed to fit into the Scandinavian environment, and features a gabled roof to help with the area’s common weather conditions. The walls can easily support folding shelves, glass from the greenhouse section, and wood from the storage area. These parts are easily stored away to allow for more floor space. The design won the Garden Product of the year award and, for now, can only be purchased in Scandinavian countries.

The photos featured here are of designer Linda Bergroth’s summer cottage. She customized one of the early prototypes by adding wood flooring and solar lights to better suit a living environment. I would love to buy one of these sheds!
