An interesting practical extension of the garden office concept is underway in Silver Spring in Maryland, USA, where development specialist Peterson Companies working with local Montgomery College has set up an outdoor workspace in the busy downtown area for the next few months. Open from 10am to 7pm, it seats 20 people and while it has free wifi, electrical outlets and a roof, is wall-less. So far it is getting heavy use and is often entirely full. There's an interesting article about the phenomenon at The Washington Post and  Regular readers will remember our look at the Rooftop Workplace of Tomorrow garden at the Chelsea Flower Show a few years ago. Among others looking into the issue is designer Jonathan Olivares whose Outdoor Office research took a look at what kind of furniture would work well in non-interior offices. ---------------------------------------------------- Wednesday posts are sponsored by The Stable Company® , the UK's premier supplier of garden offices and garden rooms.
