Garden office prototype

A cleverly-fitted garden studio in London designed and built by Elli Farrant Architects to blend in smoothly with its surroundings. Features include underfloor electric heating and materials which are all either reusable or biodegradable. Here's what they say about it:

"The build uses a rational and low-cost structure that is built using simple power tools and from materials available at a high street builders merchants. A challenge of the build was to remove the need for wet trades, including concrete, for simplicity, the environment and the expense. The use of steel screw piles removed excessive ground works and precise levelling. The 800mm deep screws provided a foundation for the timber raft base. The walls and roof were designed as a series of rational timber frames that were each built horizontally and lifted vertically for ease of construction within a limited time frame, due to juggling a full time job and the build process. The window and door were sized to be inserted into the prescribed timber frame dimensions."
