Library studio

A lovely combination of shedworking atmosphere and home library in this build by 3rdSpace in the Oxfordshire garden of a professor of literature who needed a space to store her books, but lacked the space inside her home. According to Ben Couture, it is also "fully de-mountable, meaning it can be 'flat-packed' and moved if the customer relocates in the future".

"Most of our modular buildings utilise Western red cedar cladding," says Ben, "but in this case Thermowood was the perfect material which takes well to the matt black finish. We also suggested positioning the cladding vertically to mirror the orientation seen through the spines of the books inside."
The core of the construction is a Douglas fir post and beam system. The installation of the library studio took five days to complete on site, including fitting-out with Vitsoe shelving. ----------------------------------------------------------
