Granny flat (Shack)

The client´s wish was to build a shack in the garden, which can be used by anybody from their big family or friends. The request was a low-cost wooden object with a balcony and a simple and cozy interior. The house on a steel structure is located next to a mature elm, in its crowns. The wooden structure is built using the two-by-four system, cladded with larch boards. Large-scale spruce boards are used in the interior. Kitchen and bathroom sanitary fittings, radiators, lights, and furniture are black. The bathroom (2.9 m²) on the ground floor serves the shack and at the same time as an emergency toilet for the garden. The furnishings were chosen in black, as a contrast to the spruce paneling. The terrace on the ground floor, which is next to the bathroom, is used year-round for yoga practice. The upstairs balcony is accessible via an outdoor staircase. The main entrance to the house is from the balcony. Room (14.5 m²) with a kitchen unit, a dining table, and a sofa bed is connected to the sleeping floor (7.3 m²), which is accessible via the miller’s stairs.
