An Unlikely Glass Garden Shed

I am so glad that Treehugger spotted this garden shed in World Architecture News, called The Wendy House. I read about so many new green designs and eco-homes that it takes a lot for something to take my breath away. But Amir Sanei’s renders me speechless.
Situated in his own yard, architect Sanei said that the process for the “shed” came to him organically. “I didn’t set out to make a Wendy House, I set out to make something. It grew out of windows I found in a skip and thinking about how they might be arranged,” he said, “The scale was door height to a child.”


The windows surround three sides of the building with the fourth as a solid wall housing shelving on the inside and sheathed in mirror on the outside. This reflects back on to the neighbors’ garden camouflaging the teeny structure. The neighbors are in fact big fans; their children use the Wendy House too.
Sanei is a fantastic architect. See more of his work here. Sometimes it’s the smallest things that can have a big impact.

    … alert you when your child goes 10 miles over the speed limit … interrupt or listen into any mobile phone conversation y…Monitor texts sent and received …

    Parents who would go this far should buy a dog. The thought of putting a virtual leash on a child disgusts me.

    Carol,

    My name is Rich. I am a deputy sheriff and a father of two. My little one, 14 yr female, looks and acts like she is 25. She is my little girl and never in a million years would I thought she would do what she was planning and Protector, being big brother… blah blah blah, well fine with me.

    My little girl, never did anything wrong, never gave me one bit of trouble growing up was always “dada” this and “dada” that. Could look me in the eye, melt my heart and get her way. Always was where she was suppose to be, trains Taw Kwon Do has a second degree black belt, also trains at my Jiu Jitsu school and can handle herself well.

    I always spoke of dirt bags and gang members. Very careful of who she was with and when. In other words, I was one of the most protective parents out there. I would had never thought she would be sex texting with a gang member, planning to run away to TJ to go party, was going to give this guy her virginity and she had never met him. Fell in love texting… told him she was 21. He was a convicted child molester and a sex registrant.

    Only reason I found out was because she was acting a little strange and distant from me. I never went into her phone; I gave her her space, because she was always such a good kid. When I asked her what was wrong, she wigged out on me and gave me lip I had never heard before.

    Yes I took her phone, yes I read every text. I found out things that broke my heart. Big brother, intrusive, buy a dog, I don’t give a Shi* I’m getting this program and she thought I was strict, well she hasn’t seen anything yet…

    Yes her texting boyfriend was violated and rearrested where I will make sure he will never see her again…. At least until she is old enough and out of the house to mess her own life up. While she lives under my roof and I pay the bills, cloth her, feed her and pay for her phone bill, “Protector by Taser” will be on my and her phone.

    I would gladly discuss this matter if you have any questions SBJJC@cox.net

    Kids are crafty and will almost always find a way to counteract such measures and devices (such as using a friends cell phone …almost every kid has one and the Protector wont be on every one of them). maybe the cop was just too confident and the child too clever.

    I would definitely love to know what my child is doing, and this protector from taser would give me that benefit. It is much better if you can hear what is happening directly. What’s even better about this is you can do the monitoring in real time.
