The Hackney Shed by Office Sian

Designed in Hackney: today's project from the London borough of Hackney is the Hackney Shed, a low-budget garden office designed by architects Office Sian.

Oak-framed doors fold away from the facade to open the one-person workplace to the surrounding garden, which is located just behind the client's house.

Library bookshelves are sandwiched between the exposed structural columns, while a skylight brings natural daylight in from overhead.

Office Sian also recently completed a Thai canteen elsewhere in London - see it here.

Architect Gurmeet Sian founded the studio in 2007 and their office is located on Penn Street, Hoxton.

Designed in Hackney is a Dezeen initiative to showcase world-class architecture and design created in the borough, which is one of the five host boroughs for the London 2012 Olympic Games as well as being home to Dezeen’s offices. We’ll publish buildings, interiors and objects that have been designed in Hackney each day until the games this summer.

    It's not new idea, not interesting and not good designed. It's just a normal plywood small shed. But it has mac in the middle so as you can see many was deceived and thought that it is something cool…..

    you needed an architect to design this??

    i agree with Graf.

    I don't think it was supposed to be soaring design, it was supposed to be a low budget garden office. In that sense, I think it does its job – and I want one (if they can assure me it's not going to suffer from damp!)…
