Shed design competition - early entries

We posted about the Line of Site's excellent competition to design a shed last month and entries are now coming in. Among them is Konstantin Kutyavin's submission, pictured above.

I also like the look of David Falconer's Criss Cross Shed, below, inspired by a magazine holder using recycled materials including egg boxes for insulation. Timbers would be treated with 3 coats of sadolin external clear varnish and the roof is finished with a torched sarking felt to waterproof.

And this, below, is also an intriguing shedworking atmosphere, from Leigh Brooks of Brooks & Ware Architects LLP. It has a fixed curved rear wall, revolving glazed door, and a revolving outer shell which can be rotated depending on whether you want to be alone or enjoy the views. The mosaic tiled outer shell can be shut totally and when shut, the whole thing nestles nicely into its surroundings. I think this would be a very popular garden office were it to be produced commercially.
