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, and 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. The design has potential to be developed as an ’off the shelf’ product for mass production.
