An interesting new garden office design called E-Qube has been successfully launched at the Shrewsbury Flower Show (the web site should be up very soon). The prototype timber and glass home office is being promoted in a joint venture between awardwinning caravan sales company Salop Leisure and the Shropshire Enterprise Partnership and made its debut appearance at the show as part of the Enterprise Garden (it is now on display at the Salop Leisure sales centre alongside Shrewsbury bypass at Emstrey Island where it is being used as an information booth). It ticks all the necessary boxes - fully insulated, full electrics, etc - and Unique Timber Frames who make the E-Qube also provide a bespoke fitting service as well as a green roof and waxed oak walls. The design of the Enterprise Garden show garden itself - which won a silver gilt and appeared on the BBC and GMTV - is interesting, cleverly integrating the shedworking atmosphere with a 'Thinking Patio', an area for quiet reflection or a morning coffee break from the desk. The garden was constructed to mark the launch of the Home HQ Shropshire Directory for home based entrepreneurs and innovators.
