All families like to have somewhere they can escape to when others get too much for them, whether it's a quiet space for parents to hide away in or a teenage games room, to have a space where you can relax in peace in is always a nice thing to have.
This is what our client wanted here. A large garden room which could be opened up on warm summer days but would be warm and cosy in the winter. Our clients wanted large doors which could open up a whole corner of the studio which we would need to consider when designing the building.


One joy of the buildings we can create is the almost endless number of ways we can customize and change them, no matter what they are to be used for we can create a bespoke and unique building for any garden regardless of shape or size.
To make the most of the garden and to open up as much of the studio as possible, we installed a cantilevered corner. This allows the doors to be opened up fully without the need for a supporting post in the corner. As you can see from the pictures, with the doors open there is nothing in the entrance corner. This creates a huge opening in the studio allowing for outside and inside to merge and create a transient space through which people can move with ease.
The studio is from our Helix range but features several upgrades in addition to the cantilever corner. The cladding on the exterior is upgraded from our Thermowood Pine to the Western Red Cedar. This creates a visually stunning building which requires minimal maintenance. The windows and doors were also upgraded from colour coded upvc to powder coated aluminium sliding and bifolding doors.
The final upgrade was an internal one, the lighting in Helix studios is usually strip lighting but in this design the lighting was changed for down lighters which create a lovely finish inside. I think you will agree this is a very attractive building.
