Contemporary yet Sustainable Guest House \

• December 14, 2011 does perfection.

Another project complete, another success story to tell.

In the beautiful location of Oxford, one of our clients required a garden room with a fitted kitchen and bathroom; accompanied with a large decking area. This particular garden studio is perfect for two main purposes:

  • All year round Guest House
  • A relaxing space during the summer; perfect for hosting barbeques and a spot of ‘Al Fresco Dining’

Tailor made to the clients individual needs, the team worked on the architectural and joinery aspects of the build, completing the project with both the clients requirements coupled with our unique design and expertise.

An important aspect for this build was to ensure the garden room blended effortlessly with its environment and context. The undulating levels of the garden presented a design challenge which was overcome through the implementation of landscaped features to break the hard lines between the studio and garden. With the picturesque garden overlooking the Thames River, it was important for the studio to be placed strategically to make the most of the scenic views it was surrounded by. Both the joinery and architectural team worked hand in hand, ensuring the design and layout would be of a high standard matching its beautiful surroundings.

With plenty of natural light entering through the studio via glazed bi-folding doors, the wood finish on the interior and exterior and a living sedum roof are all touches that provide an environmental building. With additional features such as external spot lighting underneath the canopy, help to create a perfect mellow ambience during the night time; giving the guest house a warm and relaxing sensation. All our garden rooms are fitted with a white glass panel heater and retaining with thick insulated walls, ensuring the outdoor building is nice and toasty during those cold winter months and enabling it to be used all year round.

This particular studio has been designed with multiple functions in mind; as previously outlined it is perfect for hosting dinner parties for family and friends, or as a private retreat to enjoy a nice glass of wine whilst watching the sun set.
