An unusual outdoor workspace built around a tree in Shoreditch, east London, has launched with desks available for the public to hire.
The main structure is made up of compressed paper, with transparent plastic and translucent polycarbonate creating the outer walls.
Its designers say that income generated by the space in Hoxton Square will be reinvested into Hackney’s parks and green spaces.
The office, which has a power supply and WiFi, will be open until December and can be booked for free by community groups at weekends.
The ‘TREExOFFICE’ concept was designed by architects Tate Harmer LLP and launched during the London Festival of Architecture.
Rory Harmer from Tate Harmer said there was a need to ‘utilise our urban green spaces in new and fun ways for everyone to enjoy’.
