Exploring this site, you will quickly realise how versatile garden room buildings are, and how they are being used for everything from home offices through to self-contained annexes. They can also be designed to have multiple uses, as in the case of this recent Swift Garden Rooms project.
Swift’s customer commissioned them to create a room that could serve the following uses:
- Stylish space for holding meetings
- Tranquil studio for yoga
- Place for teenage kids to hang out
- Accommodate occasional overnight guests
- Be self-contained from the main house
- Space for discreet storage
The Swift team had space on their side with this project, to serve these different uses. They created an 8 meter wide by 4.9 meter deep building with a 400mm deep alcove detail along the front elevation. We can’t tell from the images, but we’d bet that the Swift team have fitted external grade LED lights in the roof canopy, which will create a nice curtain of light along the front of the building.
A decked veranda extends from the alcove, creating a welcoming entrance to the building. The Swift team have colour matched the decking boards with the door frames and the roof fascia. Details like this all add up.
The 8-meter wide building has been divided with a partition wall to create a 1.5m wide storage shed area. This is accessed via a ‘secret door’ on the front wall. The door to the store has been clad in the same Cedar timber as the walls. This disguises the door within the wall.
Inside, the main room has been with a w.c. and kitchenette to one side. The main room is light and airy thanks to the 3-pane sliding doorset on the front wall and 1.5m letterbox shape window on the rear wall.
An internal door leads to the w.c. which is 1 meter wide by 1.5 meters long. A floor to ceiling window has been incorporated. The top section of which opens and the bottom section features obscured glass to offer privacy. Swift Garden Rooms offer a turnkey package for their clients, so will have quoted for, and undertaken the groundworks necessary to connect the services for the w.c and kitchen to the mains supplies.
A 2505mm kitchenette has been created in the recess alongside the w.c. An interior designer had input into the interior of this garden room and suggested the slatted wooden screens which can quickly hide the kitchen area. The slatted wood has been replicated on the opposite wall.
We can see that the room will work well for all the uses on the customers original brief! To learn more about creating a garden room that serves multiple uses, talk to the Swift team on 01625 875 588 or drop them an email. Explore www.swiftorg.co.uk to see more of their work.
