Garden Studio, Hackney
The Garden Studio in Hackney was built for use as a workshop in a small back yard. The big challenge was the access being through the house, meaning that panels were constructed in the garden and fitted into place with only inches to spare.
Reclaimed timber was used for the frame work and the front is clad in larch, with copper trim. Two skylights and large windows allow for plenty of natural light, and the sedum roof greatly reduces the overall visual impact of the building so that it does not dominate the small remaining space.
