Hackney Shed by Office Sian
London-based architectural studio Office Sian has designed a garden working studio in Hackney, London. It is a new “shed” which replaces a “dilapidated asbestos-ridden and spider-filled hut.” Following is a description from the architects, “Built to a limited budget and timescale, the simple aesthetic of the materials is celebrated to create a functional and warm urban haven.
Oak framed full-height doors are completely retractable and allow for a clear view of the garden. A library, situated within the structural members, maximises the usable floor area, and a ‘hidden’ rooflight at the rear of the space playfully frames an unexpected glimpse of the sky.”
