Does a garden office need walls?

Here's the old 'is it really a shed?' question slightly rephrased. Although there are no strict rules about what makes a garden office, we tend to go on the basis that to qualify it needs to be a) outside the home and b) not attached to the main property - there are plenty of intriguing home offices that are essentially extensions/conservatories and we do sometimes cover them here, but they don't really come under our remit.

But here's a thought. Can you have a wallless garden office? The fine people at outdoor living specialist Renson Outdoor do and have put together a short video to show how it can be done. Here's what they say about it:

Finish a task in peace and quiet, have an inspiring brainstorm session surrounded by greenery, or answer your emails in a pleasant setting: a pergola is a great place to set up a cosy outdoor home office. Make the picture complete with a cup of tea or coffee. This is literally a breath of fresh air to boost all your professional plans.

I think they're onto something here. Simply working on your patio can hardly be described as shedworking or having a garden office (despite the many people who do describe it thus on social media when the sun does come out in the summer), but this is something more substantial.
