At the very least your garden office can double as a roof garden. It’s not purely decorative, mind you, a green roof is a great way to insulate a pod that stands in a sunny spot.

Surrounding yourself with greenery is a good way to create a perfect creativity-inducing retreat as well.

Shoffice by Platform 5 Architects

Combining shed and office in more than just the name, Platform 5 Architects created something more than your run-of-the-mill garden office for a 1950’s terraced house in St. John’s Wood, London. Its curvilinear shape, that was intended to fit organically with the natural environment, creates pockets of space for work and rest, and bears a cool retro futuristic aesthetic.

There is nothing quite like working in a peaceful green garden within a few feet of your own home. Modern outdoor home office sheds allow that separation to be as convenient and painless as possible.
