Habitable Polyhedron – A Family Retreat and Garden Office in One


Garden office by Colombian architects Manuel Villa & Alberto González Sepúlveda is more than a mere office, but a family retreat or a place to unwind and it’s simply perfect. It is a home away from everyone, it’s a beautiful addition to any environment, including a garden, it is fully functional and it will not put a huge dent in your budget. Its name is Habitable Polyhedron and its primary users were intended to be young couples whose children could use it as a play house, close enough to home, but secluded enough as well. It can also be used as a place to relax, have a coffee and read or be used as a garden office in this private and comfortable place.

The house is made of a wood frame consisted of octagonal and square panels shaped into a spherical construction. Black shingles surround the house from the outside giving it the look of something naturally growing in a garden. One of the sides is a glazed surface that breaks the monotony of the rest of the structure and provides daylight and a view into the surrounding area.

Another way to let the light in is through the sky portals. The elevated deck at the entrance leads into the wooden interior that features a sofa, a desk with a chair and several storage surfaces.

At the beginning of the article we said that the Habitable Polyhedron is mainly thought to be used by children, but having in mind the look of it, it might actually be more useful as a relaxing getaway for parents who wish to have some time for themselves. [via]
