Modern Backyard Office Shaped Like a Cresting Wave

Shoffice (Shed + Office) is a design developed by London-based firm Platform 5 Architects. The structure, shaped like a cresting wave, is located in the backyard of a 1950's terraced house in St. John's Wood. The timber shape was designed as a reflection of a wood shaving, which fits well into the natural surroundings, and it curls around to form a small terrace in front of the enclosed building. The firm says that the intentions for the project were to create “a sculptural object that flowed into the garden space.”

The interior office space houses a desk built into the wall–perfect for setting up a computer and working from home–while the outer area is intended for garden storage. The room is naturally lit by daylight streaming in through the front glass wall as well as one frosted and one clear skylight overhead.
