A garden is a wonderful place to sit outdoors. You can sit and do many things like drink tea or coffee and read. The green colour of plants helps you relax and the clean air makes you comfortable. I wish to sit in this same place.
Simple built-in to create a mudroom and/or storage anywhere from an entry, to kids room or in a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Put drawers under bench or have the seat lift up to store things.
