Urban Shed - Garden in a box
by Daryl Robbins
As cities continually grow the idea of having a garden will soon be a luxury. Having a garden shed will be a gift. So what if you live in a city and have a garden shed. . . .well I guess first you would need a garden. Why not have both.
The urban shed, a place to sit and enjoy the sun, wihout the hassle of mowing the lawn. The small piece of Oasis could live on the roof of a five storey concrete brutalist masterpiece and be that small peice of contemplation space needed in the fast pace of the city.
It may not be soundproof but has space to store the tea/cocktails chairs to sit and enjoy the views and a wind shield to help moderaste temperatures.
All made from recycled panels of timber and thin steel frames, not too distant from the shelves you find in supermakets. The grass panels which have a lattice design would allow for samll amounts of grass to grow horizontally and vertically and the translucent louvred windbreak will act as the light source and ventilation for photosynthesis to take place. Adaptations could be made to suit the user with possible flowers replacing one of the table panels .etc
