On Designboom: A charming semi-transparent writer's shed

The night shot is the best, where you see that the entire main wall of this shed is transparent, covered with a lattice of wood. Designboom writes (with their trademark lack of upper case):

conceived as a haven in the city, the ‘writer’s shed’ by WSD architecture was designed for an author and illustrator to quietly work from. influenced by the client’s passion for children’s literature and mythologies, the small shelter evokes the idea of a fairy-tale hut at the bottom of the garden and offers a secret space that one can retreat to. the exterior features a glowing cedar façade with shingle cladding, as well as a log store and chimney, which help to form the immersive world within.

Terrific bookcase, working around the window, stove and flue, and sink. More at Designboom.
