Urban hut on a roof

We love the idea of rooftop shedworking and this marvellous concept for a shedlike structure on Athens' skyline comes from architects Panos Dragonas and Varvara Christopoulou. Here's what they say about it:
"In nine square meters of surface area, the cabin provides the minimum equipment that is required for temporary escapes and contemplation. Offering views of an artificial landscape, consisting of antennas, solar panels and insulation materials, the new structure allows for the minimum detachment from the suffocating environment of the contemporary Greek city. The urban hut creates a voluntary isolation cell over the ruins of the new Great Depression. The hut returns to the city both as a primary form and as a standard of minimum living, and establishes a heterotopia in the stepped skyline of Athens. "
