On a recent walkabout during London’s Clerkenwell Design Week I bumped into three amazing prefab structures in St James Church. The Tetra Sheds.
Designed by architect David Ajasa-Adekunle, this innovative new modular building system with endless combinations and limitless possibilities is constructed from eco‐friendly Structural Insulated Panels, clad with matt black rubber on the exterior. The interior is lined with birch faced plywood and the new introduction of cork offers insulation and noise reduction allowing the user to feel secluded within the structure.
When queried on what a mere individual would use this for I would recommend the following:
:: Place of solitude as a Man Den
:: Super cool beach hut
:: Children’s Play Den
:: Secluded Office Pod
:: Granny’s Outhouse – for a very non-conforming granny
:: A remote Ski chalet (..?)
Either way all you’ll have to do is fork up a minimum of… let’s say it slowly… fifteenthousandpounds for simple single pod unit. You’ll also need a minimum 2m x 2m backyard garden. Easier said than done in London!
From singular office pods to additional accommodation they are the perfectly symmetrical eco‐friendly prefab house every hipster wants in their backyard.
