During this period many of us are finding ourselves having to find new space in our homes to dedicate to home working and office space.

As this spring sunshine continues many us of us will also be looking to spend more time outside.

If you are fortunate enough to have outdoor space, then replacing a garden shed with a studio or guest room is a great way to create a flexible work space. This provides a work space away from the home environment giving you that separation.

We recently designed this Tree House Garden Studio as an option for a client who wanted to explore the different possibilities for creating a separate studio from their main house.

Inspired by an area of mature trees in the garden of the house we proposed an elevated studio space within the trees.

The structure’s exterior is a mixture of glazing and vertical timber cladding that allows it to reflect and weather to its surroundings amongst the trees.

At ground floor level a central core takes you up a staircase to an upper level opening into a spacious open plan office / living space. The glazing on three sides can be opened up to the balcony platform which surrounds the office space, creating an immersive space within the trees.

As part of the brief the client wanted to have a shower room and a separate sound proofed music room which could also be used as a guest bedroom! This allowed the Tree House studio to be multi-functional and future proofing for the client should they decide to let the space as a holiday let in the future.
