Modern homes have shifted to require flex spaces in order to accommodate the constantly changing needs of families, so ‘A Room in the Garden’ by the Studio Ben Allen has been designed to help with this. The freestanding home office and guest house is achieved using a wood frame that is accented on the exterior with a series of green shingles that draw design inspiration from the humble artichoke. The components were all achieved using a CNC machine, and the interior is appointed with a desk for working, a nook for sitting and the ability to transform the space into a guest room when required.
‘A Room in the Garden’ perfectly accommodates the needs of the family who have two young children in order to help them maximize the usable space on their property in South West London.
