Shoffice by Platform 5 Architects

View all 8 Photos

Shoffice takes the boring out of two ordinary concepts: shed and office. Platform 5 Architects have cleverly combined these halves to form an environment that welcomes cheeriness and energy into a commonplace stereotype of a space. The wood cladding of the office, functioning as floor, wall, and ceiling, envelops the interior space in one organic sweep. Half of the footprint is dedicated to interior office space, with glazing to create the illusion of an open-air office, and the other half is actually a sheltered area of open space inviting to the surrounding greenery. Surely, Shoffice makes work more exciting, perhaps converting it entirely into play.
