Box Office

by Ryan Spicer
(Fort Myers, Florida)

This home office studio will have you thinking outside the box.


Inspiration to create and design can be found not only in the structure but in its relationship to its surroundings.

Lofty ceilings lighten the space and exposed beams draw you to views of the garden. The expansive use of glass creates an intimate relationship between the indoor and outdoor environment. Sliding doors allow the studio to be opened to the garden. Louvers shade both the interior space and exterior decks while screen walls allow for privacy without sacrificing garden views.

Whether inside or outside the simplistic design of the Box Office is equipped to support the needs of a professional and provide a calm and relaxing garden studio in which to work.

lots of fluff
by: Anonymous

A lot of fluff in your description and a lot of fluff in the design. Why so complicated? And again, strange scaling with the palm trees.

way more than a box
by: iugrad

Again like your garden shed, this plan has numerous uses. I like to have same home based on this plans. Or do a whole small village using this idea.

Again very nice and cool

I like what is going on with this box office "shed" but I do not see the connection to the shed idea. Seems to me more like just any other lounge structure. And there is some lack of integration within the landscape.

Great !
by: Joe

I love the simplicity of the design and its ability to incorporate both an open light feel with comfortable shaded areas. I would love to have one of these in my garden.

I would like to see more of the actual constructability of this shed, what are its materials (besides the glass)? Can the average person construct this or do you need a professional? It seems like with the large glass panels and the overhanging louvres, you would need outside support, which I do not like.. Also, what does the inside of the shed look like? Thoughtful design though, thanks.

Very modern, well light and open. I love the way this design allows you to enjoy the outside view and take advantage of the light at the same time. Great job

nice retreat
by: Anonymous

cool design, simple, fun... can there be two floors in here, or is it just one? are there any sustainable aspects of this shed? the shading technique is nice, but a bit tacky, seems a bit too applied... but, being the design around a box it is nice..

much better
by: Anonymous

for the second design shed, i appreciate this one much more overall, even though the form of the A frame is much more interesting... this design seems simple and elegant, but still seems like a cabana setting... nice though

Dream Box
by: Dennis Hill

I loved Ryan's other design, the A-frame, but this is my personal favorite. Ditch the palms and this little box would fit nicely in my Hoosier backyard. It gets chilly here in winter, but I can just imagine the warmth in this interior as rays filter in on sunny mid-winter afternoons. Most of my yard is planted in border gardens, and a little "shed" like this would be the centerpiece for sure!

Awesome Concept
by: Jack

This is an awesome concept. It would work in a back yard providing an individual with a private yet intimate work environment. It creates an excitement of a childhood retreat but designed for the pleasure of adults.

Outstanding
by: Pamela

Beautiful open and flowing design. What a great idea. I would be excited to add one of these to my backyard, except this beautiful structure belongs in the front yard for all to see.

I like the minimalist appearance, yet the color, proportions and glazing placement is elegant. This design is one that could be very flexible as it can be used as an office, modern potting shed, or a winter sun shed. Very good work!
