It is relatively easy for designers to divide a garden room building up to create more than one room. We often see examples where there is one main room with partition walls used to create a smaller room alongside. This project by Garden Spaces is a bit different in that the building has been divided to create two identical rooms.
A quick look at a two-room garden office & art studio:
Two-room garden room with kitchenette
Garden Spaces designed this large garden room in close collaboration with their clients, incorporating all the features they wanted for their new workspaces.
One of the rooms has been designed as a home office, while the other will be used as an artists studio. Cleverly, a compact kitchenette leads off each room, providing a space for making coffees and snacks. The kitchenette also offers internal access between the two rooms.
Garden Spaces fitted out the kitchenette with base cupboards, worktop and sink.
Symmetrical garden spaces
The building has an overall size of 8.2m by 4.1m. A partition wall runs along the centre line, creating two equal-sized rooms. The two spaces are symmetrical both featuring a corner of floor to ceiling glazing.
High-spec powder-coated aluminium doors and windows have been used, fitted with performance double glazing. To create the glazed corners, each room has been fitted with a set of sliding doors on the front elevation with a fixed pane, full-height window on the side wall.
A rectangular, letterbox style window has been fitted in the rear wall of each room. This not only adds extra light but can be easily opened to let air into the room.
Large skylight floods the room with light
Each of the rooms has a lovely feature in the form of a large skylight. The skylights are 2m x 1.5m and ensure the room will be flooded with natural light. Skylights like this make a great feature in a garden room and allow you to sit in your garden room and watch the clouds go by!
Well specified electrics
The Garden Spaces team work closely with their clients to detail the electrical specification to their requirements. In this case, in addition to the standard lighting and power points, data cabling points have been incorporated as has exterior lighting controlled by PIR movement sensors.
Each room has its own climate control
It has become commonplace to incorporate climate control systems into a garden room building, for easy heating and cooling of the space. This, however, is the first time we have seen a multi-room garden room, with each room featuring its own climate control system. This means that each room can be set at its users prefered temperature - smart stuff!
