Requirement

Flexible working is being embraced by many employers and welcomed by employees. This client with the opportunity to work from home, decided a garden office was needed. He visited our stand at Grand Designs London, met the team and saw our product first hand. Subsequently he worked with one of our designers David to come up with this stylish studio, which was installed as part of a wider separate landscaping project. (Once the landscaping is finished we hope to upload further images.)

Our Solution

Planning sought and approved: The vast majority of our builds are installed under permissible development and do not require planning. If, however, you live in a flat or apartments regardless of garden ownership, planning is required, as was the case for this project. We submitted planning on behalf of our client and it was swiftly approved.

Bespoke sliding doors: Sliding doors are becoming a popular alternative to bi-folds. The vast swathes of glass give unfettered views across the garden and a very clean sleek appearance to the studio. Each panel is an impressive 2m wide giving a 4m glazed expanse in total.

Kitchenette: Our client requested that a small kitchenette for brew making, be included in the design. If a build includes waste water drainage it must be inspected and approved by Building Control. This poses no problem and a compact sink with cupboards was installed in one corner.

Climate control with PIR: Experts installed this powerful Fujitsu LT air to air heat pump; the most efficient way to control temperature and humidity. This sleek, ultra-quiet unit comes with wireless remote control and an infra-red sensor which enables the unit to adjusts to the presence (or absence) of a person in the room.

Frames and glass: Frames of the doors and high top hung window (included to ensure good ventilation) are powder coated aluminium in RAL code 7016 (anthracite grey). The double glazing is highly energy efficient and thermally insulating due to its' 'Planitherm' reflective coating.

Flooring: The standard floor for the Helix model is a high quality v groove laminate. It is available in a number of colours - here in white oak, and comes with a 25-year manufacturer's residential warranty.
