It never fails to surprise us the inventive ways that people are using garden office buildings for their business. As you will see, this recent build by Sanctum Garden Studios is quite a novel use!
Sanctum Garden Studios are based in Chorley, Lancashire. Their customer Sabrina had explored her garden office options with companies based nationwide, but before making her final decision, she decided to check out the work of a very local supplier – Sanctum HQ is just a few miles from her house!
Sabrina approached Sanctum Garden Studios with a very clear idea of what she wanted to achieve and a short timeframe in which to achieve it. Luckily, because another customer had changed their installation date, the Sanctum team were able to work around Sabrina’s requirements.
Garden office designed around a floatation pod
Sabrina’s business offers clients the chance to use a floatation pod. To house the pod, and create a shower room for clients to freshen up, a 6m wide by 3.5m deep building was designed. To take the weight of the floatation pod, a concrete slab foundation was installed prior to work on the office building starting.
This is a bespoke garden office design inspired by Sanctum Garden Studios Contemporary Range. The building has been split into two rooms. A main that houses the floatation pod and a seating area and a shower room with shower, basin and eco-toilet. These eco-toilets are becoming a popular addition to a garden office as they offer the convenience of having a toilet without the high costs of connecting the system to the mains supplies. Eco toilets are still hygienic, and there is no smell with them, which people fear when talking about composting toilets!
The office has both a set of French doors and a single door, offering a lot of flexibility regarding access and ventilation. Sabrina also chose to install an air source heat pump which means she will be able to control the temperature in the building all year round.
This project proves the versatility of garden office buildings for business use. To learn more talk to the Sanctum Garden Studios team on 01204 460 450 or take a look at their website.
