Bruntwood Field Office: The future of the outdoor workspace?

Office design specialists Bruntwood, headline sponsor of the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park which runs July 20-24, has put together a remarkable 'garden office' called The Bruntwood Field Office which they describe as "a new, more tranquil way of working... a greener, healthier way to work".

The 10x15m Bruntwood Field Office (pictured above) is designed by landscape architect Planit-IE and features a garden which will be divided by traditional native hedgerows and trees into a series of rooms including a boardroom with an 8ft table made from a local oak tree, a kitchen with feeding stations growing fruit and vegetables, and a country-style 'kissing gate' at reception. As much of it as possible will subsequently be reused in the company's other projects.
 “The Bruntwood Field Office invites you to come in and explore our playful interpretation of how you might make an office in a field," says Bruntwood Chief Executive Chris Oglesby. "The challenge was to do something different, by exploring ways in which business and culture can stimulate activity and create opportunity for a better working environment."

There are various events in and around the field office including what sounds like marvellous performances on Thursday and Friday by percussionist Delia Stevens who will be composing music using sounds made out of everyday office equipment.
