Elegans Art Studio - Herne Hill, London

Client Name:

Mr & Mrs Bailie

Client Comments:

From our initial telephone conversation through to the final details the team at Garden Spaces have been excellent. The small team on-site were very pleasant and worked extremely hard every day to ensure our building was completed to a high standard in a timely manner. We are delighted with our garden building. It is exactly what we hoped it would be, and it has been much admired! How nice it would be if all build projects could run this smoothly! We would not hesitate to recommend Garden Spaces to others and, in fact, we have already.

Requirement

The aim of this project was to provide a dedicated 'his and hers' area where our clients could relax and enjoy their leisure time in the peace and privacy of their garden.
Located in south London the approval of a local estate authority was required before the build could go ahead and we helped ensure the planning needs were met.
The building was to be used as an art studio and therefore required the installation a large sink. A seating area was also needed infront of the room.

Our Solution

To provide two clearly defined areas an 'L' shaped design was chosen and suitable flooring specified for the wet area of the art studio. To provide water for the sink we were able to extend an existing supply that was in place for an outside tap. The water pipe was above ground and heavily lagged to protect the pipes during the winter. The addition of a soak away ensured the building could have simple plumbing required for a fraction of the cost of a fully plumbed solution. The bi fold doors can be fully retracted on each side to open the building right up to the garden. Combined with the large decking area this made a large space that is usable throughout the year. The room was finished with several client specified items and included external PIR security lighting.
