Holloway Lightbox

A great design and build by London-based architects Studio Bark in Leyton, London, called Holloway Lightbox. This garden office is used as a photography studio, an office for a screenwriter, and also as occasional extra family space. The 1,200 handmade coloured tiles took three weeks to make and are a nod to the digital age, representing a pixelated facade. Here's what they say about it:
"This modern yet sustainable skin [made using waste timber fibres] presents an emphatic juxtaposition between new and old, incorporating chalky surface tones, helping to complement the rigid Victorian masonry adjacent."
The final design features an asymetrical pitched roof and a fixed rooflight. It's also available as an Air bnb rental.
