The Writing Hut

“…George Bernard Shaw’s daily routine was formal and invariable, particularly after his wife died, in 1943. In spite of all his blasting away of set patterns of humanity, he was conservative by nature. He was up at seven every morning, took two hours to read the mail and eat breakfast, then went to write in the hut he had built for himself out in the garden…”


“…The Writing Hut, at the bottom of the garden, was where Shaw did his creative work. He himself designed the small structure, and it is suspended from a metal armature so that it can revolve to follow the sun…” – Elizabeth Lambert for Architectural Digest, 1982.
