Burd Haward Architects: Green Room, Ealing, London

Burd Haward Architects: Green Room, Ealing, London

Designed for a writer who wanted a den in the garden in which to write, this prefabricated and self-assembled object could scarcely be simpler, yet its elegance is far ahead of the mundane garden shed. Walls and roof are constructed from ply sandwich panels, but covered in a mesh over which plants will grow, so that eventually only the door with its extended architrave and the jutting window will stand out from the vegetation. Having completed the first example in 2006, Burd Haward is now working with a manufacturer, looking at putting the design into commercial production.
