Remember in school when your teacher would sometimes take your whole class outside when it got vaguely sunny? Sadly, there’s never really been a work equivalent of that – until now. Hackney Council has teamed up with Groundwork London and Arts Admin to build an outdoor office space around a tree trunk in Hoxton Square, which will seat up to eight people who fancy taking their desk alfresco. Okay, so it might not appeal right now but once the weather picks up (think positive, people) then it could be a pretty sweet set-up.
The outdoor office is part of the Park Hack project, which is one of 11 Rethinking Parks projects – a fund to designed to help make the most of UK public parks. The space is being described as a ‘weather proof structure’, although since it looks pretty roofless in that artist’s impression, we reckon it’s probably not one for a rainy day. It’s been designed to be as transparent as possible so you can soak up views of the park while you’re hard at work and don’t worry, it’s got wifi – so you can still get all that important research/Facebook stalking done in the great outdoors.
The TREExOFFICE will be open for seven months and you’ll be able to book your spot online from June 1.
