A Modern Hideaway

Introducing the smartest thing I’ve seen all year: the Tetra-Shed. What looks like nothing more than a modern, boulder-inspired sculpture for your landscaping is actually an expandable, modular extension of your home.

Whether you utilize it as a spare office space, playhouse or storage for your latest gardening phase, the look is endlessly modern and perfectly statement-making!

And gosh, what a perfect hide-and-seek spot for the littles! How would you use this modern hideaway for your space?

Created with steel joints and a mix of translucent and solid panels, the structure is both surprisingly sturdy and easy on the eyes.

Are you as simply amazed as we are?
