Set in the rural forests of England, the cedar clad ‘guest house’ is nestled amongst the trees as if it belongs there. Yet the bold lines, and Bauhaus-esque appearance create a contemporary abode, identifying its 21st Century construction. The Garden Room is the latest of designs by in.it.studios, whom are setting the way forward for sustainable timber construction across the UK. Other pre-fab garden rooms are available from in.it, such as the Garden Office, Pavilion and Homes. All buildings are custom designed projects and the studio rooms include sustainable features such as Sedum Green Roofs. Made in house in the UK, the pre-fab buildings are erected in just a few weeks, making them an attractive alternative to gaining extra space without the hassle of other methods.

in.it.studios limited is an enthusiastic company spearheading the design of contemporary living spaces. At in.it., we believe that everyone should have extra space in their life, so we’ve designed our own unique range of exceptional studios, suitable for relaxing, working, entertaining or any variety of uses.
in.it.studios is the brainchild of two creative individuals who decided to bring together their skills, experience and flair for design. They both share the desire for producing a living space which reflects quality, aesthetics and inspiring creativity at an affordable price. This is what sets in.it.studios apart from the competition. The Directors of in.it.studios, Jean and Jonny, originally met at University. Prior to establishing this company, they had already gained a variety of skills in relevant industries. These skills are being applied to create in.it.studios.
Jean, worked within the joinery industry for 6 years before graduating from De Montfort University, Leicester with a BA (Hons) in Interior Design. He has since worked for a reputable design company in Dubai and more recently established his own manufacturing business, Bark Beds, and a joinery company, Bark Joinery. Following the success of these companies, Jean decided to utilise his knowledge and create in.it.studios’ exceptional range of living spaces. Jean’s years of experience in the manufacturing industry assures that in.it.studios can boast a product made from the best materials, utilising excellent techniques and ensuring overall quality.
Jonny, a young and creative designer, graduated in Architecture at De Montfort University, Leicester. He has gained a wealth of experience in a wide range of highly respected firms, including Will Alsop Architects in London, KSR Architects International in Shenzhen, China and most recently HPC development consultants in the Philippines. Jonny brings his diverse experience in design and project development to in.it.studios and is enthusiastic about creating, designing and developing in.it.’s studio range.
The strong relationship between the partners and their extensive background experience is the driving force behind in.it.studios. A shared enthusiasm and dedicated passion for both design and the product, holds exciting prospects for the company and its future.
in.it.studios are designed and developed by architects and interior designers. The manufacturing process is done in house, working in partnership with Bark Joinery Ltd. This enables us to offer a product of the highest quality, whilst allowing us to control effectively the timescale, cost, finish and materials throughout the whole process.
Our variety of designs on offer means that we at in.it.studios have the flexibility to create a studio that meets your needs and is tailored to your bespoke requirements.
Our approach to the design is to maximise the potential use of the studio whilst avoiding disrupting the garden. This balance of design and materials creates a unique harmony bonding the studio with its surroundings. We offer two options to access the studio with either choice having different advantages.
The fold.it design implements large bi-folding doors juxtaposed to the glass window. This enables you to fully open the main elevation of the studio, allowing the sunlight to penetrate the space and create that ‘outdoor yet indoor’ environment.
We have incorporated sliding doors into the same design. However, the access is more limited than is the case with the fold.it design. The advantage of the sliding doors is a less disruptive to the space internally, allowing more layout possibilities.
We provide our studios with a standard roofing system or the recommended option of an eco-friendly sedum green roof. Both are guaranteed for 20 years.
Option 1: Bauder sedum green roof
The green roof consists of the same materials and membranes as the standard roof system but with an additional vapour barrier and filtration system along with the sedum planting. There are several advantages of using a green roof, not only aesthetics but also added sound and heat insulation and many sustainable benefits. The sedum is practically zero maintenance and is incredibly durable, living for weeks without rain or light.
Option 2: Standard Bauder roof system
This robust and industry proven waterproof roofing system consists of a variety of membranes to ensure maximum efficiency. The roof is available in a variety of attractive colours.
Internal wall finishes
Our unconventional approach of not using a plastered finish is more attractive and offers more sustainable benefits. This unique panelling system is very durable and provides greater access and flexibility, whilst offering the same aesthetics as traditional plaster.
Option 1: Light Birch Ply
Light in colour and a very durable, this natural wood fits perfectly within the natural surrounding of the garden. We treat the wood with a natural beeswax finish which offers added protection and an initial pleasant aroma.
Option 2: Colour
With this finish we can offer you the flexibility to choose any coloured finish you desire.
We can install any floor material you prefer. This ranges from solid woods, laminates and rubbers to carpets.
Option 1: Solid Oak
A common favourite, European Oak offers an attractive colour and grain whilst being a durable and suitable floor finish.
Option 2: Hardwearing laminate floor
Available in any finish, this is our most cost effective flooring. We have a large array of wood finishes to choose from, with popular choices being oak, beech, maple and mahogany laminates.
Option 3: Rubber flooring
The rubber flooring is very durable and easy to maintain. This is available in many colours to suit your studio and furniture.
Our studios come with the choice of two cladding options, both of which are aesthetically pleasing and highly durable. Our preferred choice of Western Red Cedar cladding expresses a subtle red texture whilst the more cost effective option of Scandinavian Pine provides a stronger grain which is equally attractive. We’ve ensured through our design that both woods compliment the studio and the surrounding environment.
Option 1: Western Red Cedar
Cedar has a great natural ability to dampen sound vibrations and good thermal insulation properties. This takes advantage over other materials such as PVCU and metal, commonly used in the construction industry.
Option 2: Custom Alternatively, if you would prefer a different type of cladding, such as Siberian Larch, Oak, Scandinavian Pine or even a colour, then this is something we can implement.
We use doubled glazed window panes offering high insulation properties maximising the studio’s comfort in the winter as well as in the summer.
We have carefully selected our decking to fit in with the overall studio design, complementing the cladding and other finishes. The extremely durable Accoya wood forms a striking contrast to the darker Cedar cladding, whereas a darker hardwood decking has been chosen to contrast against the lighter Pine cladding.
We at in.it.studios feel that good aesthetic design choices are an important element to enhance the overall appearance of the studio. All materials have been carefully selected not just for their appearance but also for their durability and natural qualities.
All studios are supplied with a range of services and features all of which come standard and included in our prices.
Electricity will be supplied from your home to the studio via an armoured cable.
The studio is fitted with several electrical sockets inside and one additional socket outside. Down lights, electric heating, phone line (if required) alarm system security light and smoke detector are all incorporated in our designs and prices however if you have any other requirements or would like some any additional services just contact us for more information.
