Hackney Shed

Photography by James Pfaff

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"I wanted to express the simple materials in their natural state and use the shed as a showcase for what can be achieved with 'unfashionable' materials, with a limited budget but with unlimited imagination," Sian says.

Standard wood lumber frames the building and sheaths both the exterior and parts of the interior. It is very utilitarian and creatively efficient: Shelves are inserted between the framing to support books. The "hidden skylight," as the architects call it, aligns this small project with the first two examples.
A special shed. As if abandoning the daily commute weren’t reason enough to whoop for joy, a heavenly home office like this should tip you over the celebratory edge. Remarkably spacious, with ample shelving, plenty of natural light and outlets, it puts standard sheds in the shade. See more of this London shed-turned-office

If abandoning the daily commute wasn’t reason enough to whoop for joy, this heavenly home office should tip you over the smug/celebratory edge. Remarkably spacious, with ample shelving, plenty of natural light and power points, it puts standard sheds in the shade.

would be cool if this were the central room (better decor) and the roof continued to slope down beyond the back wall showd over a greenhouse room facing south, with the same glass roof style letting in the southern light.

Built-in bookcases such as these may be quite useful to include all of the library needs - surrounded by books, and other resources individuals are more likely to take something off the shelf after browsing. Unfinished plywood though will become quite soiled after a while; consider reclaimed wood.
