Located in the Netherlands, this is one shed that's too pretty to store the shovels. Designed and built by Caspar Schols, the transforming, multipurpose space overlooks a pond in his parents' backyard.

Schols, who has no formal architectural training, built the space after his mother asked for a pavilion that could host dinner parties and guests, as well as serve as a studio for painting and meditation.

Combining a shed and a greenhouse, the separate wood and glass walls are on tracks in a platform and can slide apart or together at will. The pavilion can be fully enclosed, totally open in the middle, enclosed with the glass in the middle to let in the sun but keep out the wind, or set up with the wood shed in the middle with glass sections to each side.

The shed even has a bed that raises up from the decking base, and a wood-burning fireplace.
