Composting Shed, Groves Raines Architects, Edinburgh

Composting Shed, Edinburgh

Groves Raines Architects

Groves Raines Architects designed the structure which serves as a composting area and garden store which is made entirely from industrial concrete reinforcing bar. The structure is conceived as an extension to the garden at Inverleith Terrace, Edinburgh the organic form embraces a 5 tonne boulder and provides a point of interest to both garden visitors and walkers.

 Composting Shed is constructed using a technique similar to traditional willow weaving. This weaving technique allow air and sunlight pass naturally through the structure providing ventilation for composting while creating unique light patterns which change constantly throughout the day.

The construction method minimises any impact on the ground and surrounding mature woodland as the vertical reinforcing rods are driven straight into the ground rather than using traditional foundations.

rucksack house

project: rucksack house

designer: stefan Eberstadt

total area: 9 sqm

The Rucksack house is a walk-in sculpture with its own spatial quality, which is also an attempt to explore the boundary between architecture and art. This can be transformed into a house extension, as a cheaper and faster alternative to usual extensions.

While still being inside a private atmosphere filled with light, one has the impression of floating outside of the confines of the actual dwelling above the public space. Folddown furnishings and a multitude of built-in openings on the inside provide extra living space with direct daylight. Sections of the walls unfold, with the help of hidden magnets, into a desk, shelves, and a platform for reading or sleeping.

 The Rucksack box is suspended from steel cables that are anchored to the roof or to the facade of the existing building. The construction is a welded steel cage with a light birch veneered plywood interior cladding. The outside cladding is exterior grade plywood with an absorbent resin surface punctuated by plexiglas inserts.  Lifted up in place with the help of a crane, the house can be dismantled and relocated.

The project had been assembled in three German locations: Leipzig, Köln and Essen.
