Nestled into a modest residential garden, Writer’s Shed is an isolated workspace designed by Matt Gibson Architecture + Design in collaboration with landscape designer Ben Scott for a creative writer. Located in Elsternwick, an inner suburb of Melbourne, Australia, the cabin completed in 2017 encompasses 10m² (108ft²).
Masquerading itself amongst the garden landscape and boundary fences, the shed is one with the landscape – a living part of the garden rather than an imposition on it. The successful coverage of Boston Ivy, accompanied by a collection of lush, verdant plantings surrounds the ten square meter space.
Stepping inside, a generous and simple workspace reveals itself, with a framed window looking back to the garden. Sitting inside at the desk there’s a certain inherent delight in bunkering down to look out to the garden and house beyond. As a detached and flexible workspace the Writer’s Shed provides an intimate private space to recoup, reflect and recharge the imagination.
