From the architect Caspar Schols:

This is a dynamic garden house which I built at my parental house. The idea is that the house can be easily adjusted to any weather type, mood or occasion. Mainly built in Douglas wood, it contains an inner shell of double glass and an overarching roof of steel. The space is heated by a small but efficient Norwegian wood stove. The whole project gets its stability from a traditional timber truss structure and is built on 18 pillars of reinforced concrete (150*20*50cm). Excluding terraces, it measures 6 m long and 4 m wide when at its smallest. The length can be increased to nearly 12 m when desired. The majority of the house I prepared as a ‘kit’ in my mother’s garage in about four months. After finishing the kit, friends and family helped putting it together on site in two weeks. Afterwards I worked two more months to finish the project.
