When an Opportunity IS taken…Not an old asbestos shed any more!
Let’s kick this blog off with a bang. First up is a doozer - my recent design for a garden studio, to replace an existing asbestos shed - filled with junk and spiders!
Whatever can be done with a patch of land at the end of the garden??
What replaces the original shed [demolished + now residing in shed hell for the rest of eternity] is this beautiful building, used as a garden studio and workspace for the Clients.
The back of their garden is transformed - all that was needed was a willing client + loads of imagination!
All the materials were bought from sustainable sources, with a key design factor being the need to create a environmentally friendly, warm and comforting haven in urban London. The studio was even designed to a set size so that the plywood boarding on the walls didn’t have to be trimmed, and therefore there was no material wastage!
Even the Architect’s Journal liked it, voting it one of the 24 best ‘Small Projects’ in the UK in 2010.
Not bad for a shed….
