Make your workspace work for you

by TG Escapes | Nov 14, 2013 | Blog, Residential

A garden studio is the perfect solution to avoiding winter commutes and chills, but it doesn’t have to be exclusively used as a working environment. Your bespoke garden room can accommodate work and relaxation, to provide a space that adapts to your needs. So whether you’re an accountant who loves to paint, or a painter who needs space for their accounts a multi-purpose garden room can offer the perfect multi-purpose Escape.

Self-employment comes with lots of benefits, but bills aren’t one of them. While these costs are often unavoidable, a Garden Escape provides the solution to hiring office space. Before he commissioned his garden gym personal trainer Mr Campbell-Harris was frustrated by the expense of hiring training space. His new working environment combines the facilities and features of a luxury gym, like acoustic glass and absorbing ‘Regupol’ flooring, with the convenience of its garden location.

The appeal of working out in the natural surroundings has significantly helped his business, and after his work has finished he is left with a bespoke training space where he can exercise in peace. The intimate garden location led Mr Campbell-Harris to request his gym be combined with an outdoor entertainment area, providing a space to entertain guests without imposing on his workspace.

The flexibility of a garden studio has also helped build the home business of Catherine Adams, a yoga teacher from London. The tranquillity of her classes had been affected by their previous location within a busy gym, so creating a private studio nestled amongst natural views has been inspiring for clients. Designed for all conditions, the underfloor heating creates a warm and inviting environment which allows Catherine to create a work schedule that suits her, not the weather.

The outside locations of garden studios help maintain a healthy balance between work and home life, but the end of the working day doesn’t have to mean the end of its use. With electricity, instant hot water and fully fitted bathrooms, it can become a cosy space for the whole family to Escape the stresses and demands of work.
