Last week was the hugely successful Grand Designs Live at ExCel London and the popular Garden Spaces showcased their work in their biggest exhibit to date.
Garden Spaces launched a new range of outdoor living pods which extends the useability and versatility of the garden room further, we were tempted by the illustrations prior to the show, but these images really show what a stylish addition these new spaces are, a modern alternative to a veranda!
In addition to the new outdoor pods, the Garden Spaces exhibit showcased design features such as sky lights, electric integral blinds, composite decking and a new grey render for rear facades.
A design that maximises headroom
Many buyers are looking for a garden room that is less than 2.5m high so it falls under Permitted Development rules, but are concerned about internal headroom – achieving good thermal performance in the floor and roof sections can have an effect on headroom without some clever design and use of materials, Roger Hedges from Garden Spaces explains how their design maximises headroom:
People are also surprised by the amount of internal headroom we can create without compromising thermal performance .This is a real differentiator for us due to our clever floor and ceiling structure that enables us to achieve up to 2.2m (7’2”) of internal headroom and still meet the 2.5m height requirement to avoid planning on most occasions. Most of our competition are either sub-standard in terms of thermal performance or cannot offer this headroom and their builds feel claustrophobic – particularly for anyone near or over 6 feet tall.
