The Mini Garden Office might be small in size, but it is big on features. Insulated floor and roof structures are mixed with 44mm thick interlocking timber walls - thicker timbers than the log cabin offices offered on some companies. Mixed with double glazed doors and windows, the office is designed for comfortable year-round use.
As you can see from these images, the Mini Garden Office does not dominate the garden and looks lovely positioned in the midst of garden planting.
The Mini was chosen by garden designer Karen Knowlton, The Garden Goddess as her design studio. Having previously worked from her living room, Karen is finding that going out of the house to work in her garden studio is more productive for her, and being surrounded by her garden and nature is inspiring.
When searching for a garden office, Karen had strict criteria. It had do be a contemporary design; it needed to be small to fit into her city-centre garden and needed to be sited as close as possible to the boundaries of the garden. The Mini Garden Office fitted the bill on all counts!
Natural light for working is important in a garden office. Garden Affairs have designed the Mini with three long windows and a glazed single door. This combination lets light flood into the room.
Karen has kitted out her office with plenty of storage, so everything is at hand when working at the drawing board or computer. The main benefit of working from a dedicated home office space is that work is not cluttering the house up, and productivity is up because there is not the distraction of household chores!
Garden Affairs have an interview with Karen on their website; it is well worth a read!
