As bespoke designers, the eDEN Garden Rooms team work closely with their client to design a building that will be functional and sit well within the garden. Sometimes this means adapting the shape of the building so that it makes full use of the site it sits on. This recent garden office project in Reigate is a good example of this service.
eDEN’s customer approached them to design and build a garden office. The intended site for the office was at the end of their already established garden. A design was called for that not only provides a functional workspace but also creates a connection with the garden. To maximise this connection between office space and garden a 3-pane set of bi-fold doors was fitted on the front elevation of the building. These doors will fold back to open up the office onto the good sized deck that has been built in front of the building.
Another design feature connecting the office with the garden is the floor to ceiling corner window which has been positioned to capture views of the pretty rose arch and the area of garden alongside the office. The doors and windows have a black finish, the fascia board on the roof has been colour matched with the doors and windows. Black is becoming a popular alternative to the more common anthracite grey finish chosen by many buyers. As you can see these black finishes create a strikingly defined contrast with the redness of the Cedar cladding.
Shaped to follow the boundary line
We mentioned earlier that this garden office was designed to make full use of the site it sits within. The building itself is a conventional rectangular shape, but the roof overhang on the right-hand side as you look at the building has been tapered to follow the boundary line of the garden.
The positioning of the office and this shaped roof overhang has created a triangular shaped, sheltered area alongside the building. This area could be used for storage; its main benefit though is the balance the deep eave gives the overall design when viewed from the front.
Fully plastered and decorated interior
Moving inside, eDEN Garden Rooms finish their offices like a room in a new build house. The walls and ceiling are plastered and decorated, and a laminate floor has been laid complete with an underfloor heating system. Underfloor heating is a popular option as it frees up wall space for furniture.
