This more advanced version uses a shed-like enclosure with purpose-made mobile modular units for the domestic accommodation. The units can be wheeled around with the help of a small power pusher to suit a changed work pattern or simply a change of season or lifestyle. The uninsulated shed becomes an environmental buffer zone, sheltering the units form the cooling effect of wind and rain and also from unwanted solar heat gain.
In this formation, a central garden has been created by removing an area of roof between dwelling and workspace zones. This provides a greater degree of separation between the two functions.
