Multi-shedworking space: Those Garden Rooms

An interesting garden office build from Those Garden Rooms, designed for a small company as an area for their staff to shedwork in but also as a meeting space for clients. Barry Chatham from TGR says:
"The building is built on three separate style bases supported in a number of manners as the terrain changed from concrete to loose gravel. This needed to be addressed from the onset as we had a strict deadline for build, as our client RLW Roofing wanted to be in within 10 days."
The build consists of a 4.5m bi-fold doors frontage with three floating double glazed units, with double glazed units to split the rooms internally to create different internal spaces: there's a large open plan reception, a more intimate office space and a small conference room. "We opted for angling the external fascia to add interest to the eye," says Barry, "and an angled roof leaning toward you as you looked at the building as this was a requirement of the client as he wanted to show the type of things he can create for our own clients."

If you want a chat with the Those Garden Rooms folk, you can catch up with them at the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the NEC March 18-21 (they also have lots of free tickets if you'd like one).

  1. Also, with all the building going on the last 5 or so years, I've been very much overwhelmed at the changing cityscape, but has the bulk of the new building been residential?

  2. That's a really great idea, thank you very much.
