Garden library office

Here's a marvellous garden office in London from Turner Architects designed as a study and for use as a spare room with storage. It's a concrete and ply build which has been carefully thought out - here's what the architects say about it:
The roof is constructed from the cast of the foundations – the sheets of wood shuttering that created the cast for the concrete have been used to create the ceiling's beams. It forms a deliberate heavy block above you rather than hiding from the site’s constraints. The heaviness is the weight of learning and respect for the canon – but in looking up, the books themselves create colour and warmth, then up again the tunnelled light is uplifting.
