Working with the right designers, a garden room can have more than one use. For instance, it is a popular combination to mix a home office with space for gym equipment. The garden office and gym examples we have featured over the years have been either one large room zoned for the two uses or a dividing wall has been added to create two independent rooms with their own entrances.
A recent Hargreaves Garden Spaces customer took a different approach and chose to build two stand-alone garden rooms, side by side. One is acting as a home office and the other as a home gym.
Hargreaves Garden Spaces client chose to add two buildings as they work from home, undertaking lots of phone and video meetings. Other members of the family would want to use the gym at the same time, so it was decided that two stand-alone buildings would mean that noise from the treadmill etc would not disturb the work meetings.
Low maintenance office and gym
A pair of 3.8m x 3.4m garden rooms were chosen from Hargreaves Garden Spaces collection of low maintenance garden rooms with composite wood cladding. Each building has a wide set of French doors which let good amounts of light into the room.
Composite wood cladding requires little maintenance in the long term. The HG Spaces team offer it in a range of colours, which do not require painting to maintain their appearance and colour.
As well as their rectangular buildings, Hargreaves Garden Spaces also offer their composite garden rooms in a corner design, which is lovely if you want to direct the views into the heart of your garden.
The interior of the office and gym is finished with matchboard cladding which is a lovely finish, creating a light modern room with a Shaker style vibe.
