How To Make A Tiny Shed Feel Like A Luxury Addition

Why is there such a proliferation of garden shed designs? Because in most places a shed under 100 square feet is unregulated by zoning or building code rules. It is essentially not a building. Martin Liefhebber of Breathe Architects pushes the envelope a bit with his latest model, built for the Green Living Show in Toronto: He extends his roof over a sort of exterior vestibule to create a feeling of more space.

Inside, it has a wood stove in a metal-lined niche to one side;

And of course, a green roof of sedum.

Like last year's aerieLOFT, it has Martin's trademark canoe-like curving roof that really does have a feeling of warmth and comfort.
