For its very first design commission, Avanto Architects was hired by a gardening supply company, Kekkilä, to create a modular garden shed/greenhouse. Designer Linda Bergroth, who worked with the Finnish firm Avanto to prototype the shed, took one of the completed greenhouses to her mother's summer cottage on a remote Finnish island and outfitted it with a few of her own personal touches. Today, the shed is commercially available and comes in various configurations (alas, lakeside view is not one of them). Above: Linda Bergroth's hideaway on the island of Kukio. Above: The wood-framed greenhouse is designed to be easily assembled, and the roof opens automatically to let in fresh air when the temperatures get too high. Above: Bergroth made room for a simple bed along with her plants. Above: The shed in back holds gardening supplies. Above: The modular nature of the Garden Shed opens up the possibilities for different setups. For the different options and purchasing information, visit Kekkilä .
