French composer's garden office

This is the Forest House by French architects JCPCDR who converted an old shed for a composer living in rural France into a working garden office featuring a woodburning stove, outdoor shower, and eco-toilet, as well as a flat rooftop which is accessible from the ground and can be walked upon. The build had a strong ecological angle with the glass and steel upcycled from a derelict factory, and timber from a local sawmill. Here's what they say about it:
This space, though small in size, was conceived to give a sense of quiet, and intimacy with the surrounding nature. Whether you are standing, sitting or even laying down on the convertible sofa, canopies are designed to frame various perspectives on the vegetable garden, the beautiful 1940's house, the centennial oak... and even the stars at night. Light flows from one side of the house to the other, and the ambiance transforms throughout the day and the seasons.
