Harrison James have recently completed this garden office which is one of the smallest we have featured on this site and perhaps the most unusual shape too.
They were asked by their client to design a garden office that could be a quiet place to work and take telephone calls away from the distractions of the main house. So far so simple you might think…
The thing with this garden office design was that the available site was both small and a non standard shape. The site alongside the house tapered creating a wedge shaped plot.
If you placed a standard square or rectangular shaped garden office in this shape plot you would end up with a smaller office and an area of ‘dead’ land. This is where bespoke garden office designers like Harrison James come into their own.
The Harrison James design team designed a wedge shaped garden office to follow the lines of the site. This created a building 2.8 meters deep by 2.3 meters wide at its widest point and 1.4 meters at its narrowest.
The client asked for the office to have as much natural light as possible. To achieve this Harrison James made use of a 900mm fully glazed door. They also incorporated two windows arranged around the desk and workspace.
All Harrison James garden offices are highly insulated and double glazed so are perfect for year round use. We have talked about before that a heater is still needed to create a cosy environment on the coldest days of the year. Harrison James incorporated a 750 watt electric heater into this design.
The end result is a garden office that fits perfectly into the site available. Its unusual shape doesn’t effect the functionality of the workspace at all. It is also naturally very light thanks to the mix of windows and glazed door.
This bespoke garden office cost around £8,000 including VAT which seems very reasonable for a building which has been specifically designed for the site and clients needs.
This garden office shows how bespoke garden office design comes into its own when you have an unusual shaped plot. It also proves that bespoke garden office design need not cost the earth.
Harrison James have built up an impressive portfolio of garden office designs on their website. Take a look at their website for details on their specification etc or give them a call on 01403 713 766
