Humble Hackney Shed is a Peaceful Office Space in a London Garden

Located in the middle of a garden in North-East London, the Hackney Shed is a cozy little work space by Office Sian Architecture + Design . Perfect for stay-at-home workers looking to get some air, this neat one-room concept is a studio that uses a simple framework to maximize the small space available. It even incorporates a library within the structure and a concealed light in the roof, while floor to ceiling retractable oak doors open out to beautiful views over the surrounding garden.
Working with sustainably sourced timber , the London-based studio attempted to limit waste by using what modular sizes of wood were available. And with their commitment to low energy usage, Office Sian ensured the award-winning shed design was well insulated to keep heating bills down.
