Garden Spaces

This archive of articles looks at the work of Garden Spaces who design contemporary garden rooms built using highly insulated SIP’s. We first wrote about their work in 2009 and have enjoyed following their journey as one of the leading innovators in the market.

They offer three ranges of garden room, but these are just a starting point for a building that is tailored around your garden and intended use.

Garden Spaces offer one of the widest palettes of materials and design features we’ve seen, you can truly personalise the finishes of your Garden Space.

They offer a turnkey service and will work from you from design right through to the final decoration. If you choose to include a shower room or kitchen, they will handle the groundworks and connections for you, ensuring they are signed off by Building Control.

As well as creating all types of garden room building, they also design and build contemporary house extensions, self-contained garden annexes and school classrooms.
