Office Shed in Miniature

In preparation for our upcoming outdoor issue, we've been examining all manners of outbuildings: prefab sheds, tree houses, architectural follies, even chicken coops. The recently introduced Tetra-Shed is a pugnacious contender—it's cute meets cutting edge, with petite proportions and a geometric volume.

The modular units, available in the UK as of this month and in the US sometime in the spring, can be customized with two interior linings (birch-faced plywood or plasterboard) and six types of exterior cladding: RAL paint, copper, zinc, Cor-Ten steel, or marine plywood. 

Individually, the units look stoically futuristic; imagine a stalwart backyard office or a less serious playhouse interpretation. Combined into larger tessellations, the modules can be used as, say, exhibition or retail space. Word to the wise: generator or very long extension cord sold separately.
