Don’t you dream every now and then to get away of it all, far from the too busy family life ? But you don’t want to take plane to the other side of the world ?
Then the ‘Shoffice’ by Platform 5 Architects might just be the thing you’re looking for. The ‘Shoffice’ (shed + office) is a garden pavilion project conceived by Platform 5 Architects containing a small office alongside garden storage space located to the rear of a 1950’s terraced house in St John’s Wood with the brief requiring the ‘Shoffice’ to be conceived of as a sculptural object that flowed into the garden space.
The glazed office space nestles into an extruded timber elliptical shell, reminiscent of a wood shaving, and forms a small terrace in the lawn. The interior is oak lined and fitted out with a cantilevered desk and storage. Two rooflights – one glazed above the desk with another open to the sky outside the office bring light into the work space. The project was a close collaboration between Architect, Structural Engineer and Contractor. www.platform5architects.com
