The Fairytale “Garden Shed” by Ville Hara and Linda Bergroth
Architect Ville Hara and designer Linda Bergroth have created this remarkable garden shed!
As a unique proposition for combining the two structures into a new, and aesthetically pleasing design, the addition of wooden flooring and solar lights make Linda Bergroth’s personal early prototype an inspiring outside room. It is a unique prefabricated garden shed that combines a green house with storage space and comes in ready made elements that can be assembled by simply using a screwdriver.
The Garden Shed is made from Finnish pine and safety glass and equipped with automatic openers to control the temperature inside. It is designed to fit in the Scandinavian landscape and has a traditional gabled roof – typical in the area because of the weather conditions. The product comes in natural wood and can be painted according to taste and the surrounding area. The wall elements function as support for folding shelves: glass shelves for the greenhouse that allows the sun reach all the plants and wooden shelves in two sizes for storage use.
This is my first blog feature, I have chosen to feature the very talented Luke Gram, whose blog consists of all his own work.
“I’m a 20 year old guy. I use the term ‘guy’ because I don’t find myself fitting into one true label. I don’t call myself a photographer because i’m a hobbiest. I don’t call my self a university student because I hate school (but love education). I don’t call myself a traveler because if I did I would be gone for my entire life.
However, I am 20 years old and attending University of British Columbia for Psychology and History. I try to travel as much as possible, and some of my favorite trips are hiking into the Rockies or going on ski vacations.
My goal with my photography is simply to preserve memories. Nothing else. I started taking photos because of two reasons. One, I have a terrible memory; I forget things almost the second they happen. Two, I am extremely nostalgic, and I think it conveys that through my photos.
I try to capture fantasy-esque recreations of the landscapes I emerse myself in. I like to remember them as i felt them - not as how I saw them. I feel the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the mountain air. I admire the colours and the haze of the sky, and I let things like that dominate my memories.
I post primary landscape/lifestyle, but I try to venture into the odd portrait.”
Since 2000 photographer Joel Sternfeld has documented the abandoned elevated railway line running down the west side of Manhattan. The work within this book was pivotal to friends of the high line’s campaign for the preservation and re-use of the space.
