In 2008 the very first Dulwich Green bike shed was built as a response to a problem common to urban-living.
As environmentally minded cycle commuters living in a London terrace, we (journalists Kevin and Ellie) needed somewhere to store our bikes that didn’t a) monopolise a room in our already crowded home, and b) mean we trashed our home wheeling our bikes through every day from the shed in back garden. Our solution: put a bike shed in the front garden. But the only sheds available just weren’t satisfactory – they weren’t safe enough but, just as importantly, they didn’t look very nice. Neither of us wanted a metal bunker or a flimsy traditional shed wrecking the front of our house.
So we built the very first green-roofed bike shed.
Family, friends, and neighbours loved it – everyone seemed to want one. So when Kevin left his job, he decided to bring their unique brand of bicycle storage solutions to the wider public. The result is Dulwich Green: bespoke bike sheds made in the UK with love.
We hope you like what we do. Tell your friends and together we believe we can make our green and pleasant land that little bit greener and more pleasant.
