We love seeing examples of small garden studios. They showcase a designers skill, how they manage to balance form and function when working within the confines of a small space.
This tiny garden studio by Timber Rooms is a great example. At 1.53m x 1.79m = 2.73sqm, it is the smallest garden studio we have seen. It may be small in stature, but it does not lack design features or functionality.
Designed to fit the space available
Timber Rooms offer a bespoke design service. Many people think that bespoke design is just for large buildings, but it comes into its own on small projects such as this.
Timber Rooms client lives in a terrace house with an established garden. They had a small space near the house, alongside a pond where they wanted to create a studio workshop.
The pathway leading to the garden gate needed to be maintained, so following an initial site visit, a 1.53m x 1.79m studio was decided upon.
Clear design brief
Timber rooms client had a clear design brief for the studio. It is going to be used a glass workshop, so needed to be naturally light and warm enough for year-round use.
There needed to be power for a kiln and plenty of power sockets and connection to the internet.
A small studio packed with features
The Timber Rooms have fulfilled the brief with this studio. The interior is wonderfully light thanks to the glazed door, which leads off the pathway. Additionally, there are casement windows on the side and rear walls. This combination floods the space with natural light and frames views of the pretty garden.
The white-painted, plastered interior bounces the light around. You don't often see this level of finish offered in small garden studio design.
The studio is fully wired electrically. There are ample sockets around the room, with a power supply for the kiln. Underfloor heating has been fitted - a great solution, freeing up wall space for desk and storage systems.
The high-spec finishes continue externally. The studio has been clad in Western Red Cedar cladding. The roof features a living roof system, which is a great way to help a garden studio blend into an established garden. As we can see, it looks lovely when viewed from upstairs windows.
We think this is an excellent example of a tiny garden studio. It proves that even with limited space, you can create a stylish, functional space.
