Shedworking atmospheres don't come much more temporary nor cocoon-like than Nacho Carbonell's Por las ramas . "I create a space in nature, where you feel protected as in a fetus," he says. "The perception of home is strongly linked to the material. Making your own cocoon we transferred our emotions, needs, into our shelter." Nacho continues: "Crafts make things more human.The look of this cocoon has a strong over-natural aesthetic. I want to expose concepts as: public and private or natural and artificial, creating a contradiction who leads the project since the very begining.For the construction of this cocoons I used bioplastics (used in agriculture, they disappear after one season). This is intended to be transitory. It will eventually be reclaimed by nature, but in return nature will provide benefits to nature and it will close the natural circle of live. This design is as an optical illusion." And here's how you put one up...Via Designboom

Minnesota-based Four Season Spaces is one of the new breed of garden office manufacturers building with structural insulated panels (SIPs). Above is their garden office model with cement board siding, art profile metal roofing, rolled cork walls and fused bamboo flooring. I rather like their home cinema idea too, pictured below.

So I just returned from today’s LEED Design Charrette and everything went very well. The bottom line is that we found out that reaching Platinum is possible with our design, but we have a few issues to clarify and iron out. Rob from MaGrann was extremely knowledgeable and taught us all a lot about the [...]
