A proximité du centre ville de Groningen, dans les jardins ouvrier de Tuinwijck, Haiko Meijer et l'agence d'architecture hollandaise Onix ont réalisé cette cabane de jardin. Ouverte sur l'extérieur, la "Poplar Garden House" se dresse sur une parcelle ensoleillée, petite maison en bois de  peuplier à l'élégante simplicité.

Sur ce projet, l'agence Onix précise:

"Close to the city centre of Groningen the allotment gardens of Tuinwijck are situated. This green oasis between the railway track and the Helperzoom offers the inhabitants of the city a low budget possibility to create the most eccentric gardens.

The gardens have an average size of 200 square meters and are rented out. On the lot, where gardening is primary, it is allowed to build up to 36 square meters. Sewerage, water and carboy are available. Power supply is only possible with solar batteries.

The sunny lot of this little house is situated between the playground (South) and the ditch (North). These two different orientations were the reason to design two different outside areas. One is an introvert space, in the shadows of the apple trees and orientated on the ditch, and the other an extravert area orientated on the creek garden and the playground. The condition of the soil (boulder clay) was the reason to choose for a creek garden. Water drains away through the creek into the ditch. Through stepping-stones at the south side, the plank bridge can be reached, which at the eastern side of the house provides for a connection with the north side.

The house has a saddle roof, which is one of the types that you see a lot at Tuinwijck, the other type is the pent roof.

The volume has been formed so that the house embraces the two outside areas. It is a garden house as well as a shed and a sculpture. The house is completely formed by one plank size and is made from poplar wood. The window stills are made from planks as well as the foundation. The house is never finished. The planks are easy to take out so that in the future art can be integrated in the house."
