The Plant Room

The Plant Room is a marvellous shedlike design project, a prefab room that "bolts-on" to a flat with the aim of "improving the quality of living, reducing energy and water use, and generally making the building more sustainable". According to the designers, it provides hot water and a great growing space for herbs, fruit and vegetables and includes a worm farm, a rainwater tank, outdoor space and an enclosed room. And a rather nice foldout day bed. As they also point out, as well as improving quality of life, it could also be a suitable shedworking solution.

It was entered in the recent Sustainable Habitat Challenge in New Zealand and won a Commendation for Vision. There are lots more renders on the site and lots more details here too.
