Requirement

The Reeds wished to install a sizeable gym with additional head height, in a secluded corner of their garden. The initial intention was to build close to the boundary but planning for this refused. They were however able to build their gym 3m high (externally) and 2m away from the boundary, under permissible development.

Our Solution

A bespoke design around existing features: The front comer of the building was stepped, to fit around a large conifer.

Skylights: The design included two skylights, glazed with high performance self-cleaning glass, to maximise natural light.

Bi-folding doors: Aluminium powder coated frames spanning the front façade, 4 sashes (each 1m by 2.3m)

Integral blinds: Controlled via magnetic mechanisms, these give fine control of the sunlight - critical on sunny days if watching the TV as you work out. .

Western Red Cedar cladding: This studio was clad on all four sides ensuring an aesthetic finish from every aspect. Our cedar is kiln dried and fixed with secret stainless steel pins. It can be oiled annually or left to weather gracefully. 

Finished flooring: 10mm v groove laminate flooring, durable, easy to maintain and comes with a 25 year residential warranty.

Climate Control: A Fujitsu LT Range condenser was installed for perfect humidity and temperature control.

Electrical installations: 19 internal (dimmable) and 3 external LED downlights, plus 7 double power sockets and a weatherproof external power socket, certified with Part P.
