Incorporating two distinct uses under one garden studio roof has become quite the trend. Over the last few years, we have featured several garden studio buildings that include a secret shed area.
Sanctum Garden Studios recently completed this example. The 5.4m wide by 3-meter deep building is taken from their Contemporary Range. With this range, the garden studio can be tailored to your needs.
One building divided into two
In this case, the customers wanted to divide the room into two creating a studio space and a discreet storage room. To achieve this, the Sanctum Garden Studios team installed a partition wall, dividing the insulated structure into two rooms.
The storage room is accessed via its own door which has been clad in the same Cedar cladding as the walls. The boards have been matched with the walls to create a hard to see, 'secret door'.
A small window adds natural light
Unusually, a window has been fitted in the storage room. This makes the room more versatile, as with natural light and ventilation it could be used as a workshop. Often, storage rooms such as this, just have a light and no window.
Wrap around glazing
The main studio space will be naturally light, thanks to the wall of glazing created with French doors with side lights. A further window has been positioned on the side wall, creating a warp around glazing effect.
Often, a fixed window would be used in this side wall position. In this case, the Sanctum Garden Studios team have fitted a tall window with an opening top section. This offers all the benefits of a floor to ceiling window with the ease of being able to open the window to ventilate the room.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Gary & the team for planning & installing our lovely studio. To say we’re pleased with it is an understatement. Everyone who has seen it, including our garden designer, is highly envious & a few have said they are going to look into getting one too. Thanks also for being so flexible with working around the landscaping work, it was much appreciated. We would readily recommend Sanctum to anybody.
