Sett Studio was scheduled to be erected onto a plot of land in his backyard. The modular units are a nifty, thoughtful, and green alternative to the common converted 'shed.'
shou-sugi-ban (焼杉板) treated wood panels. The unique color and contrast is achieved through a charring process weatherizing and sealing the planks. The sum of these elements results in a design that has the fit of an architecturally-tuned space and the finish of a state-of-the-art modern home.
Apartment Therapy Survey My style - Our goal was to produce smaller format, functional space that maximized energy-efficiency and sustainable materials, and integrate that approach with modern design. The inspiration for my home office - I've worked from home for several years, and have always struggled to effectively implement a boundary between the space I work in and the space I relax in. I had been talking with a builder friend of mine for a few years about a small-scale modular format he had always wanted to do, and we got out act together and made it happen. Favorite element in your space - I love the concept of separate space. I walk out of my house, and into my work space. And when I leave my work space and close that door, I can walk into my house and actually relax. The other part of it I really love is that it looks attractive, and I'm always happy to walk outside and see it. Biggest challenge in designing my space - The biggest challenge was probably deciding exactly how I wanted the space to work. Since it is small, you have to use the space efficiently, and in a way it really forces you to think about what you need to get out of it and not fuss over the non-functional-like details. What friends say about my space - My friends are all blown away by it. At some point, every single person makes some comment about how this would be perfect for "fill in the blank" at their house. I think everyone immediately see the value in having your own, personal, separate space.
