As we can testify, working from home in a garden office is a great way to create a definition between work time and family life. A businessman from Warwick could see how a garden office could work for him and having made some initial sketches of the building he envisaged, he approached Green Studios to turn his vision for modern home working into a reality.
Steve, a Digital Marketer wanted to create a home office so that he could work without having to always commute into the main office. With two young children and little space in the house to create a dedicated office space, he looked to his spacious garden.
Steve had a very clear vision for his office and had made some preliminary sketches to show to the Green Studios designers when they conducted their site visit. This is a very clever first step that can save time and ensure that everyone is on the same page from day one. The Green Studios designers took Steve’s initial designs and developed them, working closely with Steve on the choice of materials and design features.
Striking bespoke design
Green Studios are known for their contemporary design style. This garden office is a bespoke design, designed especially for Steve. The office is a spacious 15 square meters with a glazed corner created with a set of 3-leaf bi-fold doors and a wrap around floor to ceiling window. A narrow casement window frames a view of the house and allows for easy ventilation in the seating area. Our favourite feature though is the bespoke cockpit style window that sits over the desk. This window offers wonderful views of the field beyond.
Perhaps the most striking feature though is the open board cladding on the exterior of the building. Steve was very keen to implement this finish on his building. Green Studios is one of the few suppliers who offer this cladding finish. The gaps between the boards create a shadow gap which enhances the design. You don’t have to fear that moisture will penetrate into the core structure via these gaps, a special membrane is used under the cladding to prevent moisture ingress.
The interior of the office is as stylish as the exterior. We love how the open cladding detailing of the exterior walls has been replicated in a panel over the desk – clever detailing! The desk area incorporates lots of storage while maintaining a minimal look. The cockpit-style window works well having been positioned at desk height.
Steve opted to have a solid oak floor installed in the room which oozes quality. Working with a bespoke garden office designer like Green Studios you can have input into all the finishes like this.
A pleasure to work from
Apparently, Steve is finding his new office a pleasure to work from. His children know not to disturb him when he is in the office and his productivity is so good he rarely has to travel to the business’s main office.
