Writer’s Shed by Weston Surman & Deane Architecture

Writer’s Shed by Weston Surman & Deane Architecture was designed by the London based architecture studio by the commission of author and illustrator as an inspiring part of his property in which he could create his works in.

“The design responds to the client’s passion for children’s literature and mythologies.The space is conceived as a haven in the city; a fairy-tale hut at the bottom of the garden where the client can retreat and immerse himself in his work. Externally, the glowing cedar facade, shingle cladding, log store and chimney all play a part in creating this world. Inside, a large north-facing skylight floods the workspace with natural light. On the gable wall, a bookcase meanders around the wood burning stove, providing a centre piece for the client to store his library of books. Looking back out over the garden, the glazed sliding door gives onto a covered verandah.” – a space perfect to enjoy the very worst of the British weather.” – from  Weston Surman & Deane Architecture, Thisispaper
