Garden rooms are becoming an extremely popular accessory to new-build houses.

Offering all the traditional qualities of a conservatory, they also give a more permanent structure and make it easier to control the temperature, so they can be utilised all year round.

This particular structure is being used as an extension to the property’s kitchen giving a large, extra dining space area.

It has a brick base, a timber frame and solid oak panels to add that little bit of extra character to an already stunning new home.

Our approach to garden rooms is slightly different to other architectural practices in the fact that we aim to achieve a rustic look as much as possible.

Infilling with timber can often make the structure look quite bulky so instead we try to use glass in keeping with its traditional design.

Services provided:

  • Planning permission and statutory building consents
  • Submission of designs to the frame company to facilitate its manufacture
  • Oak detailing and onsite advice

The design process was very open and collaborative ensuring the additional garden room was a suitable and seamless addition to the rest of the property. We worked hard to ensure it fitted with the rest of the design.
