Designed as overflow quarters behind a summer house in northern Sealand, a tiny prefab plywood studio has one of everything: a door, a window, a skylight, a shelf, a table, a bed.
Copenhagen-based Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter designed the freestanding box to provide both work and sleep space in a compact cube—instant backyard accommodations for summer guests.

Need a Summer Clubhouse in the backyard? Us too.
