This off-grid garden office in Christchurch, New Zealand, was designed by Shrewsbury-based architects and designers CandO (see here for details of their Beehive tiny house) in the aftermatch of the 2011 earthquake. They worked with Sustainable Habitat Challenge (SHAC) to design and build this movable office for
the Life in Vacant Spaces Trust (LiVS), helped by volunteers. Here's what they say about it:
the wake of the 2011 earthquake the office was to be in the spirit of
the charities mission to help revitalise Christchurch’s many vacant
sites . The brief was to provide a comfortable working environment for
two employees in just 10m² to avoid building consent requirements. The
small plan was made to feel bigger with a lofty roof and projecting
window seat. Further space was delineated with a covered entrance
veranda, solar panel awning and fenced off exterior deck.
Three solar panels supply power for laptops, printers and
lighting while the frame (including windows, insulation and cladding) and some of the interior was put together largely using salvaged materials from post earthquake demolition.
