AR Design Studio: Glass Cube

Not for the shedworker who guards his privacy jealously, but frankly a lovely garden office possibility for a natureloving homeworker (it's already on my list for Santa), this is the Glass Cube by Andy Ramus' AR Design Studio. Andy describes it as a modern interpretation of the gazebo which aims to "create an invisible building while providing the occupants with shelter from the elements". It has marvellous workdelaying views of the countryside and a lake and was built with five pieces of 12mm toughened glass (each pane weighs 200kg) stuck together using hardy silicon. It was craned in and put together by six chaps. And if you thought all that was clever, it measures 2005mm by 2005mm by 2005mm. Guess which year it was built...
