Office In My Garden designed this garden office for a product and brand designer in Muswell Hill. The customer wanted to cut his commute into central London and decided that a garden office was the solution.
With a keen eye for design the customer worked closely with the Office In My Garden design team to create his perfect workspace. The customer wanted to create a design with clean lines and no clutter. To achieve this Office In My Garden designed in floor to ceiling hidden storage along the rear wall. Another wall features a a grey Forbo bulletin board for pinning ideas – we love the this idea!
The interior of the office is finished in birch plywood. This is a great alternative to a traditionally plastered and decorated interior. The office is flooded with natural light thanks to the wall of glazing and the skylight which runs the length of the building. This skylight must look great at night too as it has five stylish LED strip lights flanking it.
The doors that Office In My Garden have used on this build are different to those commonly seen on garden office designs. The doors have a very thin framework which maximises the glazing and they both slide an fold meaning the whole section can be pulled back to create a free flowing connection with the garden.
Office In My Garden are experienced in designing garden offices for London gardens where space is at a premium. In this case they made full use of the width of the garden, allowing them to slot in a 3 meters deep x 3.6 meters wide office. The building is 2.5 meters high. To allow them to site the office so tight the boundaries of the garden Cedral weatherboard was used on the rear and side elevations. Cedral is often used in these instances as it has a low fire rating and is Building Regulation compliant. Another bonus is that it doesn’t need any ongoing maintenance. The front elevation is finished in Western Red Cedar which Office In My Garden have stained black.
The garden office is fully wired electrically and features CAT6 cabling meaning that the owner can connect to anywhere in the world from the bottom of his garden. The office also features underfloor heating meaning the room will be cosy without having radiators breaking the clean lines.
To tailor the design even more to the clients needs Office In My Garden designed in a secret storage area. This provides valuable storage for garden tools etc.
