Harmony
by: D. Kovie

I truly appreciate this design concept which presents a fully living environment that delivers nurturing sounds and beauty in a harmonic way that only nature can offer. To harness the water and allow it to deliver it's gift in such an elegantly natural way while creating an environment where people can be grafted in. Wonderfully done Wayne!

Can I have one of these
by: Julie O

I love the design,it looks so relaxing and functional.I wish this could be my shed and I could let the old man have his boring one all to his self. Just wish I had a garden big enough. Well done.

Shed Your Preconceptions
by: Anonymous

This project flips the valence of the very meaning of 'shed'. Shed1 - A rude structure built for shelter, storage, etc. Shed2 - To pour forth (water or other liquid) as a fountain. This, however, is no rude structure – its very elegance shows that it is no mere storage space, but rather a container, for water, sustainable daily practices, and healthy, fulfilled lifestyles. If this shed were a boat at sea, it would seem to make the sea around it. And yet, rooted to the ground, it does this very same thing. One can wax poetic about such a project, but perhaps it is more meaningful to say, that I wish I myself could live in such a beautiful place that encourages the production of personal, environmental and community health. Very nice work, Wayne!

A nice mix of creative, simple engineering and a good overall aesthetic. I love the idea of adding glamour to the shed, while still keeping its stereotypical use of garden work. I don't know if you heard, but backyard farming is SO in right now.

terrific design and function
by: Mike

This is my favorite shed design. It makes a strong statement in its look and its function. I'm very interested in how it could fit into my space and could provide water for my garden. Thanks for a thought-provoking design.

Ahhhhh... A "Man-Shed"...!!
by: Frank DelloRusso

I'm no farmer, so I'd leave the gardening to my wife. But I can certainly see myself sitting there in a comfortable lounge chair (built in as part of the design, if you would, please), with a good book and a fine Scotch whiskey (full bottle, please) for quite some time feeling the stress flow freely from my body as the water flows from the roof.
P.S. to my wife... no "poofy" stuff in the garden... root vegetables only, if you would, please.

Poetic
by: Anonymous

I enjoyed the poetic expression (your shed) to a larger over arching concern (water reuse). The water, material sensibilty and the zen calm creates an intense personal almost meditive space! Congratulations.

Simply good design...
by: Runo Okiomah

What this project offers is unadulterated "good design," born from a true respect for water. Functional, efficient and uncompromising, it eschews the formalistic superfluity that plagues less-seasoned design works to provide a multifunctional architectural solution.

"Where agricultural production meets therapeutic oasis; The WATER|Shed."

This is one of many ingenious design solutions to Wayne's credit. You never disappoint!

WATER | Shed
by: Susanne Seitinger

Part zen garden part environmentally sustainable urban gardening -- this project is great -- I can imagine it in a suburban, urban or rural setting. Also, the materials imply that it can be completely locally sourced and also expanded in a modular fashion. Very intelligent use of the roof for channeling the water. Awesome.
