Rotating Shed Follows the Sun

Susanne Watzeck & Jörg Sturm designed this in 1996 as the "first unit of a space system in which the individual functions living, cooking, washing, sleeping, working are accommodated in separate units."

However, years later with garden sheds and small spaces being all the rage, it stands on its own quite nicely.

The interior built-ins are quite lovely, with the stools stored away looking like part of the interior. The entire unit is on bearings,

and may be rotated depending on the sunlight and desired orientation to enable both- climatic conditions, as well as the orientation of the cubes to each other to met different spatial relations.’
