Brief

Our client required a new garden room, primarily to be used as a space for arts and crafts.

Response

Our scheme has a plain geometric form simply clad in render or sheet steel. A single counterbalanced gull-wing door provides a canopy when open.

A new multi-purpose building was required in this lovely south-facing garden.

Response

We obtained planning permission for a new free-standing timber-clad garden structure with a sedum roof containing garden/bicycle storage and a home office.

Brief

Our client required a new garden building to accommodate a model railway layout. To reduce complexity and costs the building was to be designed for self-build and to require neither planning permission or building regulation approval.

Response

The building form is reminiscent of a traditional railway wagon and has a heavily insulated timber frame without conventional foundations. The building walls and roof are clad in ‘corrugated iron’. The rounded ends reduce the apparent size of the building and reflect the radii required for the track layout within. The roof projects beyond the building footprint at one end and along one side to provide a sheltered sitting area and bike/tool storage. The client has made a good job of constructing the curved entrance door.
