Working to create a sculptural object that flows in the garden space, architects and designers at Platform 5 Architects have developed the Shoffice, a wooden garden pavilion that is a combo of a garden shed and a quiet office. The unfolding wooden structure features an extruded timber elliptical shell to give it an aesthetically pleasing and a functional look.
The glazed office space, which has been built towards the rear of a 1950s terraced house in St. John’s Wood, displays a fascinating exterior, where the extruded timber shell forms a small terrace in the lawn. The eco friendly structure is reminiscent of wood shaving and features an interior that is oak lined and fitted out with a cantilevered desk and storage space.
The architects have integrated two roof-lights – one providing illumination above the desk and the other one open to the sky outside. Both the roof-lights bring in natural sunlight to the interior to save the energy the occupants would have otherwise spent on artificial illumination. For more images please visit designboom.
