Because of the flexibility of the garden office construction systems, it is relatively easy for a designer to incorporate two separate rooms under one roof. Garden office designers can achieve this without creating a disjointed look.
Garden Fortress have recently designed and built this garden office building that features two separate rooms under the one roof. The building has been designed so that one room sits behind the other. The main room is accessed via a set of bi-fold doors on the front elevation. The second room is accessed from the side of the building via a set of glazed French doors.
The one room behind the other layout is a clever use of space in a long narrow garden. It also creates the illusion of the building being just one room. The owners of this building plan to use the rear room for storage. Often in these situations a solid door will be used to disguise the storage area. The use of glazed French doors opens up future possibilities for the room, so is a good choice as in the future the building could easily become two home offices.
This building is 3 meters wide by 5 meters deep. It is clad in Western Red Cedar which contrasts well with the grey aluminium doors. A 1-meter deep veranda has been created along the front of the building with a 500mm canopy above; this creates a defined entrance to the building. The canopy has been fitted with exterior grade LED downlights which will create a nice curtain of light along the front of the building.
Internally the room has a modern feel, with fully plastered and decorated walls and ceiling which have been mixed with a wooden floor. LED downlights have been fitted in the ceiling.
This build took a team of two workers 12 days to build from scratch on-site. Watch the different stages in this video:
