Text description provided by the architects. Till the 1970 a huge barn could be found at the place where the structural work of the garden house was erected. The boundary wall merges with the wall of the garden house. On top of the wall a cornice fulfils the transition between wall and steep roof. The ornament of the cornice can also be found at the covering of the two gables.
The simple looking floor plan and the distinct shape put the garden house into an archetypical appearance.
Minimal interventions inside the building offer the possibility to use the garden house all-the-year.
Each corner of the space is occupied by one function. The double swing doors can be fixed in three different positions in order to generate three different spaces: the space reaching through the whole building, the central space with niches next to the windows, the central space with a main view through the front doors. Two big gates in the attic allow to open the gable keeping the airy character of the structural work.
