NOA: Modular shedworking

Although Estonion designer-inventor Jaanus Orgusaar's intriguingly-shaped NOA has been designed as more of a living space, it would also make a marvellous garden office (it's modular so a single module would be sufficient for most shedworkers). NOA stands on three feet and does not need a foundation. The floor plan is a hexagon

According to Jaanus: "The base element is a specific rhombus and the base for the structure is the rhombic dodecahedron. The rhombic dodecahedron can be used to tessellate three-dimensional space. It can be stacked to fill a space much like hexagons fill a plane."
