The Shoffice Is a curvy Home Office

Shedworking and about 42 other design sites all pounced on the Shoffice (Shed + Office) from Platform 5 Architects in London. (I am informed that proper credit should be given to Designboom)

The architects describe it as:

a garden pavilion 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.

Indeed, when you look at it from above and from the house, it almost fills the lawn; there isn't much left. It certainly is a lovely sculptural object, but I wonder if it isn't too much of a good thing. More at Platform 5 Architects and Designboom
