Combining function and sculptural design, the creative minds at Platform 5 Architects developed an interesting project in London, England. Shoffice is a garden pavilion located to the rear of a 1950?s terraced house in St John’s Wood and displays a fascinating exterior. The brief of the owners required a “sculptural object that flowed into the garden space“, so the architects achieved just that: an unfolding structure made of wood, perfect for accommodating a quite office and a shed.
Here is an excerpt from the official press release provided by the project developers: “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 roof-lights – one glazed above the desk with another open to the sky outside the office bring light into the work space“. To us, this looks like a modern, practical and aesthetically appealing project. We look forward to seeing your reactions as well.
