Garden offices at RHS Chelsea 2022

Sadly it's another rather thin year for garden offices in the Show Gardens at RHS Chelsea Flower Show. 2022 which opens in a couple of weeks (although if you're visiting, do wander around as there are always suppliers like Plankbridge exhibiting too). Easily pick of the bunch though is this in A Garden Sanctuary by Hamptons, a rather lovely timber garden cabin by Koto who specialise in bespoke micro-architecture with a Scandinavian/Japanese feel. They describe it as "a place to meditate, a contemplative room, a space to sit and work, an immersive space to connect with the surrounding nature; a garden sanctuary." 
The large windows offer excellent views of the garden (designed by Tony Woods at Garden Club London), it's carbon neutral, and the exterior effect is the Japanese charred timber Shou Sugi Ban. The whole thing is actually available to buy from Koto direct.
Here's what the RHS says about it:
"The small, sculptural structure offers a place of seclusion and meditation, and an immersive space to connect with the surrounding power of nature and plants. Under the canopy of pine and birch trees the sound of water gently trickles through the garden...The garden is rich in pollinating plants with water for wildlife and densely planted trees to encourage birds. Rounded glacial boulders and natural stepping stones contrast with the building and provide an intentional way to slow the journey to the cabin, through the planting and across the moving water."

  which do not require planning
