Dark Matter garden studio

This stunning garden office (called Dark Matter) in Tring, Hertfordshire, for a design recruitment consultant comes from architects Hyperspace who describe its exterior as "a scaly biodiverse fa├žade". Like yesterday's post, it's actually a reworking of a former garage into a 40m2 studio, rectangular with one corner chopped off. Indeed, Hyperspace has commendably managed to hang on to and reuse 95% of the structure.

The 850 larch scales on the exterior are arranged in a grid pattern and chamfered at 15 degrees to provide homing opportunities for insects and spiders. And while inside there are white oiled timber rafters and light poplar plywood panels, its charred black appearance only confirms that black is very much back in the garden office world. Also worth a mention are the centrally pivoting door, and the two light chimneys. Lots more photos at the link above and at their instagram page.
