This simple and stylish studio space was designed and created by green studios, with a large amount of glass across the front of the office it helps to make the most of any natural light. The main concern with ‘sheds at the end of the garden’ is the lack of any sunlight, making it a dingy and depressing place to work. This space can not only be an effective office space, but it can double up as guest accommodation or a kids play den.

This Dutch example of an outdoor space was created primarily as an extra space for studying, bikes, garden tools and a guest room. With this many uses the design had to be simple but able to fulfil all of its uses, so there needed to be an element of homeliness to it. Using different sized pieces of plywood sections of the building were pieced together like a jigsaw to fit in with the buildings angular look. The aim of the building was to make the you feel as if you were nestled within the garden whenever you looked out. Creating a light and airy interior within the building it helped to contrast against the dark and sharp exterior.

This outdoor space in London proves you haven’t got to spend thousands to get the look and extra room you’re after. With exposed structural columns the studio space has an unfinished feel to it, adding to the urban style. The large glass skylights that fit between the wooden beams, matched with an impressive sliding oak framed door help bring a bit of nature into the work space. With such limited space available in inner city parts of London this studio space gives you an unrivalled commute tucked away from the hustle and bustle. As well as a snug work space it can also double as a quiet reading room.
