Saint-Gobain: low energy playhouse/garden office

This marvellous building was designed by C. F. Møller Architects for Saint-Gobain to be a sustainable playhouse or general purpose garden building. It's 4.5m x 3m, has 'intelligent' window glazing, solar panels and 40cm thick walls with specially efficicent glass wool insulation, and the window panes are designed differently according to which way they face: it's the kind of design you would associate with a cutting edge, eco-friendly house (apparently it can be heated using a few candles). It can certainly be used for shedworking since it was set up for the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference last year where it was used as a radio studio by NOVA FM.
