The Hackney Shed

The Hackney Shed can be found in a domestic backyard in Hackney, London. The shed was designed by London-based architecture studio, Office Sian, who were responsible for managing projects budget, schedule and quality. The overall aim was to create a garden workspace and studio that would serve as a “functional and warm urban haven”. The shed is accessed by set of retractable floor-to-ceiling oak framed doors that maximise light intake and provide a clear view of the garden.” – Niall

The Micro Pod

Internally there is adequate space for a desk, storage and shelving, which can even be built into the pod.

A full height window, glazed door and additional desk height window can be positioned to make the best use of the available natural light and underfloor heating along with recessed spotlights comes as standard.

Despite the smaller dimensions there is no compromise on the quality of building with furniture grade birch plywood reveals to the windows, door and skirtings, and sleek white painted walls.” – The Micro Pod

Garden Office Kit

I really wish more American companies would jump in on the tiny house (garden office) bandwagon. There are so many great designs for modern manufactured tiny buildings coming out of the UK, like this one from Garenberg. To top it all off this beautiful little building comes as a kit the owner-builder assembles themselves.
