What's going on w/the (doors?) - Can you close this up? Are those some kind of hinges or something on the left, is there a folding door type thing? This is fantastic idea for a studio. I would modify to be budget-friendly.

It could be 4 door panels, 2 on each side, that fold back on themselves. There are a variety of ways to design/build sliding and bi-folding doors to can open up rooms.

Office - What an inspiration for a home office. Where is this?
   Comment   December 23, 2012

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The couple wanted their working environment to feel light, warm and comfortable, with room for books and electronics. Wiring, weatherproofing and security were priorities.A view of the garden was a must, too. The full-height retractable doors allow the two to enjoy the garden while they work — and create the option of entertaining here in warm weather."The clients were very excited about seeing the doors fully open," says Sian. "It's another surprise for visitors who are expecting only part of the doors to swing open."
Challenged by 150 square feet and a $16,000 budget, architect Gurmeet Sian used hardware store materials to create this garden shed retreat for two freelance writers in London.
Shed/Office in East LondonThis 150-square-foot home office belongs to freelancers who wanted to feel a strong connection to their garden space and the outdoors from inside the office. The architect used simple and durable materials sourced from local and sustainable companies. He also made sure that the materials maximized insulation levels within the shed to keep energy costs as low as possible.
3. This last example is the smallest of the bunch, a garden shed in London's Hackney borough, designed by Office Sian. The single-room building serves as a library and an office/studio for the clients. It may be small and had an equally small budget, but it parallels the other two examples, especially in the way it embeds itself within the trees.
These London homeowners wanted a backyard office that would help them take advantage of their lush, green garden — despite the rainy weather. Simple but sturdy materials — plywood, steel and glass — made sure the space would be secure from weather and kept down costs. Full-height glass doors lock into place or retract for a garden view in rain or shine.See more: Shed-Turned-Office in a London GardenTell us: Do you have a backyard escape?

6. Take your work outdoors. Semiscreened by the trees and foliage, what might look at first glance like a humble shed is actually an office space fully equipped with power and an Internet connection. See more of this office in a London garden
