Artist's studio at Chelsea Flower Show

The place to catch garden offices this year at Chelsea Flower Show is not in the big gardens where the media swoop on the great and the good, but at the trade stands. We looked at Plankbridge yesterday, but today the focus is on the excellent artist's studio on display at sculptor David Harber's stand at MA336, already the recipient this year of a five start trade stand award. Sponsored by property specialists Savills and the garden design practice Nicholsons, the garden shows off Harber's intriguing work (for images look here) as well as the advantages of shedworking, and includes an on-site kitchen. 

Here's what founder Liz Nicholson says about it: "The show garden was designed as an inspiration to encourage people to work from home in green spaces for creative thought and mental wellbeing and most importantly reduce the commute to help protect our planet."

There is an excellent diary of the build on the Nicholsons website with lots of photos, a day by day account of how it was built, and gratifying full details of everybody who was involved in the build, in front and behind the scenes.
