Maison des gardes agricoles[1][2] is a plan for a spherical house by Claude Nicolas Ledoux, designed for the Mauperthuis-project.

Charles Jencks in The Story of Post-Modernism: Five Decades of the Ironic, Iconic and Critical in Architecture describes it as a "utopian house for rural caretakers."

Others have described it as a "refus du mouton," a sheepcote.
