Are you running yoga classes in drafty town or village halls? Well, why not stop paying rent and create a zen-like space in your garden.
A recent eDEN Garden Rooms customer did just this. Tired of paying rent on the Town Hall, she had long had the vision to make use of the space in her garden to create a dedicated yoga studio.
Making a long held vision a reality
eDEN Garden Rooms customer had a long-held vision for her perfect yoga studio. As bespoke design specialists, eDEN Garden Rooms were happy to work closely with her to make this vision a reality.
The customer wanted to create a naturally light space, that had a connection with the garden. To achieve this, lots of floor to ceiling was incorporated into the design. This included a four-leaf set of bi-fold doors which will fold back ensuring the connection with the garden.
We particularly like how a glazed corner has been incorporated into the design. Mixed with the doors and other windows this creates a great wrap-around effect.
eDEN's customer wanted to create a zen-like space free of clutter. To achieve this, the 7.3m x 4.3m building was divided into two rooms. The larger room being the yoga studio with a smaller room for equipment storage and for clients to store bags etc. The addition of this room keeps the main room distraction free.
By just creating an opening in the wall, rather than adding a door into the storage room, the connection between the two rooms is unfussy. Clever, less is more design at work!
Taller than 2.5m but still built under Permitted Development
Wanting to create a room with a high ceiling, eDEN's customer decided upon a taller garden room than we commonly see. Often garden rooms are 2.5m high, which allows the most flexibility in positioning under the Permitted Development rules.
In this case, the floor to ceiling height is 2.4 meters. Add on the floor and roof structures, and you are well over the 2.5m height allowance.
The yoga studio could still be built under the Permitted Development rules though, because it was positioned at least 2 meters from each boundary. Positioning like this allows a garden room with this roofline to be a maximum of 3 meters tall.
Had a planning application been needed, the eDEN Garden Rooms team would have handled this as part of the overall project.
It is always interesting for us to see photos taken during the construction of a garden room. Having spent many hours on-site, we know there are a lot of materials to work around and how difficult it can be to keep the site tidy.
Mid-build photos like this, give us a clear indication of how tidy and organised the site, i.e. your garden is during the build.
The eDEN Garden Rooms team are clearly a tidy, well-organised bunch!
