Earth Shed

There is already too little space left around an average suburban house.


Earth shed is not a separate building, but a part of the landscape.

Standard triangle elements with sides serving as roof trusses and bases - as a floor joists are placed parallel to each other to any desirable length. The earth roof becomes a continuation of a landscape.

Minimum exterior cladding materials.
Excellent natural insulation in warm climates.
Natural draft ventilation.

a shed doesn't have to be practical- just fun!

not much rooms on the sides for storage or use... most likely this shed will be damp as well.. there is not much individual design here either, just a typical a frame on the ground

reminds me of the 60s or 70s

way too throwback, and seems to be the size of a house. the corners are ill used space. too traditional of an idea too...
