A carport extended with a garden house.


Because the carport only will serve as car park in wintertime, in summer it can be the place to sit on hot and sunny days. Therefore a wall is built on the back side of the carport, making the space a little more cosy.




Large garden shed.

November 1, 2013


This large garden shed will be used for winter stock of garden furniture, and garden machinery.


A large door, with a bigger and a smaller wing make the shed easily accessible with large objects.


Situated at the far end of the property where it is build, there is no control over who could be there with what intentions. Therefore the windows are barred. Which gives the garden shed a specific look.


Made in substainable wood, and as far as possible within cradle tot cradle principles.

A new garden house is build in a restructured garden. A shed, extended with a covered terrace – a cool spot for hot summer days.

An extra wide door gives space to move in and out with garden machinery.

A man-sized fence serves as a wind screen, and prevents people from looking in. Between the fence and the roof, some space is left open. There is also a passage to the back side of the garden house, where a storage space for firewood is situated

Cradle to cradle bike-house.

December 15, 2010

Clients asked me to consctruct a cradle to cradle bike house, for the whole of the family’s bicycles. Earlier, they were stored under the porch at the front door, but they were not that well sheltered. Inside, the bicycles can be locked up in a bike rack, and there is also more and other storage space available.

The bike house is completed with a green roof. The image is made just after the seeding of the still tiny plants.

The green roof two years later. (2012)
