Studio Errante’s Sarah Becchio and Paolo Borghino created this adorable shelter at the southern corner of a family home’s patio in Italy. With access from the house and also from the street, the shelter was made for storing wood for heating the house on cold winter days. Constructed mainly from concrete and local chestnut that’s been burnt using a traditional Japanese protection method, the shelter keeps wood dry inside as the air flows through the walls.

A lovely, multifunctional design, Studio Errante’s charming shelter keeps humans and animals warm when they need it the most.
