From 'shed' to Asian garden office 'sanctuary'

HDR Remodeling specialises in bathroom and kitchen remodeling as well as garage and basement conversions plus outside living spaces (and is a member of Build It Green ). They have an excellent detailed case study with lots of photos of how an unwanted shed was turned into a lovely garden office (above) as they explain: "The Owners' passion for Asian influenced design set the tone for the Project. They valued the simplicity and aesthetics of the Asian architecture complimented with the fine attention to detail. Beyond the design statement, the Owners required an office removed from the main residence in order to segregate work from the solace of their living space. Although the garden office would be a professional environment, it had to also harbor a sense of tranquility and discipline; again, elements of the Asian culture." The finished building includes a courtyard and stone bridge leading from the main house to the new garden office, double sliding doors and Japanese gates. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Monday's posts are sponsored by garden2office, the Swedish garden office specialists.

Instead of putting people under house arrest – where they'd stay at home all day, unable to leave their own property for weeks or months at a time – you instead send them out to some perfect suburb in the middle of, say, Nebraska or Utah, a remote [...]

"My garden runs only at the side of my property..."

A pertinent question from Shedworking reader Wendy following the recent changes in planning permission rules : "My garden runs only at the side of my property, i.e between the house and the highway, with no back or front aspect. It is totally enclosed by a 3.5 - 4 metre high wall. The wording re 'No outbuildings forward of the principle elevation fronting a highway' begs the following questions: a) Does that apply, as the proposed summerhouse will be nearer the road than our house as ALL of our garden is? And if so does that mean we wouldn't be allowed any new garden buildings under the new rules? b) What does 'fronting' really mean? Our proposed summerhouse won't be fronting the highway as such as it will be totally obscured/concealed by the 4m wall. Or doesn't that make any difference?" All answers gratefully received. Pictured above, exactly what Wendy doesn't have.

It's still chilly here at Shedworking HQ (the lake in the local park is frozen) and so this intriguing structure strikes a particular chord. It's called 'The glacierhouse effect versus the greenhouse effect' and is by Olafur Eliasson (from the collection of Jeanne and Michael Klein). I also rather like his 'Your invisible house' below (from a private collection in Santa Fe). Via the always intriguing OffBeatHomes
