Be inspired by an inspiring space

by TG Escapes | Jan 13, 2014 | Blog, Residential

Where do you go for inspiration?  Maybe to a favourite place, somewhere you can escape the chaos of everyday life and relax and concentrate on your artist project or hobby. But what if this haven of creativity was no further away than the bottom of your garden…

Creating an outdoor studio frees up space within the main house and offers a creative environment where you can work without the distractions of family life. Surrounded by the beauty of your own little piece of nature the stunning design of each Garden Escape provides a light and airy working space for art, photography, music or any other creative venture you may be inspired to take up this New Year. Garden Escapes are built from sustainable materials and designed to be eco-friendly with energy efficient features.

To enhance the sustainable beauty of the space, a living grass or sedum roof can help your studio blend in as an extension of your garden and lend the benefits of nature to your work. Proven to improve concentration, satisfaction and contentment a natural view can inspire and motivate you to create something original. Since transforming her dull and dingy shed into a light and airy outdoor studio, Susan Wadsworth has enjoyed the impact an improved working environment has had on her artwork.

“The Garden Escape really understand what a great studio needs. They were able to design my new space in a way that would benefit my work and creative inspiration.”

With enough space for her materials, equipment and several ongoing projects Susan’s inspiration is no longer compromised by limited space but has expanded with the studio. Natural light from sun pipes and full-length windows minimise energy costs and offer a view of the colours and textures available in the space outside.

For a more family friendly space, consider a creative space that also serves as an additional living area. The Dampier family wanted to maximise on the fantastic views from their garden site and requested a hilltop room where Annette could paint in peace. Rather than using the room as a ‘studio’ reserved only for work, their Garden Escape is the perfect place to enjoy the nature that surrounds them without worrying about the weather. Fully insulated to offer a warm haven in the colder months, the decking provides an extra entertainment space for summertime gatherings.
