Writer's Retreat

A lovely curved build in Newark for a writer by Sheltered Spaces including an extension of their existing garage. We particularly like the cedar shingles on the exterior (there's a section in our Haynes Shed Manual out next month on how to make shingles). Here's what they say about it:

Inside, the walls and floorboards were treated with Osmo White Stain to stop the yellowing of wood and to keep a subdued, but light quality to the space, and windows were set into the flat roof adding an extra dimension to the space, and whilst the brief was to create a hidden retreat the connection to the outside is formed by the light from above. The felted walls provide a reclusive space and alter the sound of the space for the better, and bring a warmth whilst providing a welcomed change to the mass of wooden surfaces.  We never wanted to hide the way the felt was applied to the walls, so we went for the upholstered look with gorgeous Blued steel forged nails.
