John over at Secrets of Shed Building has announced the winner of his Design Competition.
The winning design from the 70 shed designs from 20 different countries is
The “Open Office” shed is divided in 3 areas: a living/meeting area, a working area (a modular desk for up to 3 people, storage etc.) and a utilities area (coat-hanger, bathroom, sink, coffee machine etc.)
Besides offering a great view and creating the feeling of working outside, the big windows allow to save a lot of energy in terms of lighting, and heating during winter. Thus reducing the carbon print and the electricity consumption. There are no windows on the North side for higher isolation against the cold Northern winds. The solar panels on the roof supply the shed with the energy required for lighting and electrical appliances (computers, coffee machine etc.).
A bit posh but a great Garden office the likes of Alex would go for 😉
Look our for more Shed design comps on Johns site soon.
