Summerhouse at the End of the Garden
There is something very special about this simple summerhouse. It fills the entire width of the garden and is a great space for a lady who wants occasional peace and solitude as well as her busy family life.
The brief for this summerhouse was simple: the biggest possible space at the back of the garden, large doors and please be careful about the budget. The lady who ordered this little structure wanted to build a space for herself, her hobby and for meeting her friends. At the end of the project it turned out not to be a small garden room, but a rather spacious and very bright, modern she-shed.
With large bi-folding doors at the front and little doors to the back of the garden (allowing access to additional storage space behind this modern garden building) and a small window to the side, this summerhouse nearly has more glass than walls, at least to the front. The two side walls have been built 5cm away from the boundary, maximising the internal space.
Light grey floors and white door and window frames from the inside make this room look even bigger. Fully opening those amazing bi-folding doors increases the feeling of space, fully connecting the room to the garden. Finished off with a little decking landing area from left to right, this summerhouse looks really special although very traditional in a modern way. No special additions in order to keep it within a tight budget, it has an amazing feel to it.
When we completed this project we heard the biggest compliment we could ever hear: it looks like it was always there.
