Garden podcasting studio
Published: 10 December 2022
A garden room can be an excellent workplace for content creators. As this project shows, Vita Modular can tailor the layout and specification around the requirements of podcasters and YouTube creators.
This contemporary design has been tailored to the needs of a successful podcaster. For a podcaster, the acoustics of the room they work in is important. This is the beauty of a purpose-built garden room. Compared with adapting an existing space, you can incorporate your ideal soundproofing specification into a garden room without making any compromises.
As standard, Vita Modular designs are a multi-layer construction that incorporates Building Regulation standards of insulation. With this project, they added additional layers to enhance the room's acoustic properties.
The acoustic upgrades include acoustic insulation and layers of acoustic plasterboard. The interior was plastered and decorated, creating a modern, professional studio.
The studio has a striking corner of floor-to-ceiling glazing, which ensures a naturally light room and a lovely connection with the garden. Generally, glazing is minimised in a soundproof studio because it can leak sound. Vita Modular have overcome this by using triple glazing.
Only a few garden room designers use triple glazing in their buildings because it is an expensive option. Not that the project had a high price tag. The 4.2m x 3m soundproof studio cost £24,500, which is very competitive for this size building. So, for that to be the price, including the additional soundproofing, is impressive.
Striking exterior form
The garden podcasting studio has a striking contemporary form. For us, it has echoes of the Huf Haus style.
Vita Modular's client chose the Shades in Stone finish from their palette of options. This is a low-maintenance choice that as well as looking good, offers an additional layer of thermal and acoustic insulation to the build-up.
The cladding is available in four different stone-coloured shades and two texture types: one with a fine-cut grain and the other with a pitted finish.
