Choosing a shed - Spacebox

If you liked the post last week about the perrinepod, I think you'll also enjoy Spacebox. Again, it can be both low-cost living as well as working space, and again it's essentially modular (you don't have to have as many as are pictured here). It's made of high-grade composite materials designed by Mart de Jong of design office De Vijf in Rotterdam. The smallest studio unit is 18 metres squared and can be linked to other 'pods' to create extra bedroom or living space. Each studio contains a kitchen, shower-room/lavatory plus running water, electricity, sewerage and telephone connections. The Spacebox has been around since 2001 and is becoming increasingly international with a UK supplier now too.
