Diocese of Westminster's garden office

An interesting build by The Stable Company for the Diocese of Westminster which was keen to rebuild lecture rooms at its Allen Hall Seminary in Chelsea. The work required the demolition of the former 35-year prefabs on the site and the addition of new foundations - the whole project, including putting up the buildings, took six weeks. Here's what they say about it:
The building was required to deliver flexible teaching space that could meet the needs of varied group sizes. A single storey design was created to ensure no change of outlook for the other nearby buildings and the exterior was clad in vertical and horizontal cedar weather boards, which provided a stunning, natural appearance for the garden setting.
Other features include a sliding, folding, sound-proofed partition, so that the whole building can be opened up into one large space or  kept as separate lecture rooms.
