Green Studios recently worked with renowned children’s book author Cathy Brett to design her a garden studio and living space.
Cathy had decided to downsize and to create a modern, purpose built living / working space in the grounds of her parents house. The building needed to be light and airy and the living quarters needed to be spacious, as it is used as permanent living accommodation. Cathy now has a great solution to the long term care needs of her parents and has a perfect space in which to create her artwork.
The 12 meter x 6 meter building is self contained from the main house, with kitchen and wet room. As well as the main multipurpose living space and bedroom there is a mezzanine area for occasional guest accommodation.
Key features of the build include:
- Wet room & WC and kitchen facility – Green Studios installed the services to connect the building and the shower room, though the client fitted their own bathroom and kitchen.
- Hard-wired data and telephone cabling – for communication and entertainment purposes.
- Mechanical Ventilation and Heat recovery system (MVHR) – as the building is being used as permanent living accommodation we installed MVHR which means the heat created in this airtight building is ventilated through the building for maximum heat benefit. Conversely in Summer, this acts like air conditioning.
This is a fine example of a high spec living space that can be created in your garden. For more information visit Green Studios website or give the team a call on 01923 205 090
