When we were at the Chelsea Flower Show last month, we had the chance to explore an example of the Crown Clarence garden room by Crown Pavilions. Crown Pavilions are mainly known for their Cedar garden buildings, but they have recently launched the Clarence range which allows you to mix different material finishes.
On show at Chelsea was a slate clad garden room. The front elevation of the building had been clad in slate tiles creating a lovely tactile finish. The hardwood bi-fold doors were finished in a colour matched grey, so the room has a sleek appearance. What particularly took our eye was how the Crown Pavilions team had detailed the slate cladding with the timber cladding used on the side walls. Rather than just finish the slate at the ends of the front wall, they have wrapped the finish around the corners of the building and angled the intersection between the two finishes, a nice touch.
Exploring the Crown Pavilions website we were interested to see that the Crown Clarence can also be finished in brick slips. Brick slips have all the character and texture of a real brick they are just thinner, making them an ideal cladding for a timber-framed garden room.
A brick clad Crown Clarence could be the ideal garden room if you are looking for the quick build times and thermal efficiency of a timber-framed building, but with the traditional feel and character of a brick building.
The Crown Clarence comes in several sizes from a modest 2.5m x 2.5m building up to a substantial 10m x 5m.
