Garden office designers are keen to create a building that works for both the customer’s intended use and the garden it sits within. This recent design by Garden Spaces is a clear example of this.
Garden Spaces were asked to design a garden office for a small urban garden. The customer wanted to create a modern home office area but incorporate some discreet, secure storage too. Nothing too unusual here, until you look at the layout of the building.
Garden Spaces and their client decided to position the French doors on the corner of the building, making them a key feature rather than position them on a straight wall. By setting the doors at a 45-degree angle, the customer has chosen to frame the view down the garden towards the house. A full-length window has been positioned on the wall alongside the corner doors. Combined the glazing floods the office with natural light.
A storage room has been positioned in one corner of the building, accessed via a secret door on the outside. The storage room steals some space from within the office but is obviously very valuable.
Garden Spaces have created a light, modern interior. The walls and ceiling are fully plastered and decorated. The floor is a high quality engineered oak flooring.
The office is well specified electrically with five dimmable LED downlights in the office. A further 2 LED downlights have been fitted externally – these lights are exterior grade fittings. In the small storage room, a simple pendant light has been incorporated. The office and storeroom feature double power sockets. Brushed steel fittings have used in the office.
The office features a Fujitsu LT Climate Control unit offering the customer total control over the temperature in the garden office. The system features movement sensors so will switch off and on as movement is detected within the office, making it energy efficient.
Sedum roof helps the garden office blend in
The customer chose to add a sedum roof covering on their garden office. Sedum roofs are a great way of helping to make a garden office blend in, especially when viewed from above.
Sedum roofs need little maintenance, just an annual tidy which shouldn’t take more than an hour. Birds and insects will love the habitat that it creates, and you will have the benefit of an extra layer of thermal insulation on your roof.
This unusual garden office shows that working with a bespoke garden office designer, you can create a building that meets all your needs.
