This is the All Terrain Cabin designed by Canadian design collective Bark. Rather than a simple garden office for shedworking, it's an inspiration to raise the profile of Canadian design, what Bark call "a cabin for the 21st century", and is on tour around the world. Indeed, you can't even buy one. The idea is that this could support a family of four (and pet) using its own supply of water, heat and power. Essentially, the whole thing just folds up – the bedroom ﬂoor and outside deck fold up to become side walls – and is transformed into what looks like an ordinary shipping container to be shipped wherever you want. More details from Bark here.
