5 Backyard Home Offices to Inspire Your Own

Thinking of setting up an office in the backyard? 

A backyard office gives you a clear, defined place to get work done.

Unlike working inside the home, where you’re at the beck and call of everything vying for your attention, the backyard office brings you greater calm and focus while promoting productivity and creativity.

What’s more, today’s backyard offices can be designed with all the amenities you’d expect like heating and air conditioning.

Here’s 5 of our favourite Melwood Backyard offices to inspire you:


1. A stylish & spacious office in Mosman

This stylish Melwood office provides plenty of space for a large desk & chair as well as two client chairs. The perfect spot for meeting clients – remotely or in person.

The all-white interior creates an added illusion of space & is the perfect contrast to the beautiful garden views. 

Size: 5.4m x 3.2m

With superior sound and thermal insulation, Melwood backyard offices are perfect for speaking to clients and colleagues in a distraction-free environment. 

Whether its a video call, teleconference, webinar or podcast you’re joining – you’ll have the peace & quiet you need to focus and enjoy your work.

3. A spacious office shared by the whole family

Annabel has turned her Mod Garden Room into this cozy & inviting space you see below, which her whole family can share & enjoy. 

She says “In these unprecedented times where all of us are now working or studying from home, we are feeling so lucky to have a Mod 20 cabana. Home office, painting studio and teenager retreat, it has been a blessing.”

5. Matt’s long, narrow home office that houses multiple workspaces

The valuable space provided by this home office is loved by Matt’s whole family, as it can be used in so many different ways. 

“We use it as a home office, art studio, teaching space, retreat and most important of all – an anchor point for a hammock.”

Matt’s home office is the Verandah No.19. At 7.2m long, it’s long enough to create different zones for different family members, making it a truly multipurpose space.

The best benefit? 

“We’re not in each other’s way anymore because this space is so versatile and inviting.”
