Shedding Your Home Office Inhibitions

Shoffice (shed+office) is a garden pavilion containing a small office alongside garden storage space located at the back of a 1950s’ terraced house in St John’s Wood, London. 

The project brief was for both a practical office space and a sculptural object that flowed into the garden and was a close collaboration between Platform 5 Architect, Morph Structures and the contractor, Millimetre.

The finished design is a fully glazed office, which nestles into an extruded American white oak, elliptical shell that unfurls to form a small terrace in the lawn. The interior is also lined with American white oak and fitted with a cantilevered desk and storage. The structure is naturally lit by two skylights; one glazed above the desk and another open to the sky outside the office, attracting light into the work space.
