Green Room

The Green Room is a pre-fabricated garden room, conceived as a take on the traditional garden shed.  Its economic, simple pitched volume is clearly expressed internally and externally.  Internally, the room is lined with ply and has built-in ply furniture: externally a galvanised mesh is applied that encourages planting to grow up it, camouflaging the walls and roof, leaving just the large projecting window & door visible. 

The Green Room is fully insulated and heated, and provides a warm, dry, light and low cost additional space for living and working.  Two have been built to date, and a further three commissioned. The design has potential to be developed as an ’off the shelf’ product for mass production.
