Lawn house

The Lawn house by altro studio doesn't just put the garden 'in' garden office, it puts it 'on' it too. The designers actually describe it as a "bio-compatible mobile house" which sports plastic transparent panels and a thin layer of earth with a lawn on top which acts as insulation as well as looking marvellous. It goes without saying that this would be a marvellous space for some shedworking. Lots more photos at their site.

  1. Mildly interesting but a plastic house is still a plastic house and is more certainly not bio anything.

    I wonder if they really considered what happens to this 1 week after putting it up? Do you have to cut the grass? water it? Will the grass dry out too quickly? will it slip off the roof?

    Quirky but useless. More of an art piece than anything practical.
