Garden Room in Pinkneys Green

Project Details

We were recommended by a previous client to this new clients who had an existing under cover paved area to the back of the garden that was not used very often. It was quite dark and didn’t lead well from the back of the home to the impressive landscaped gardens. There were existing beams and a vaulted roof clad in tongue and groove boards. 

The client wanted a usable room where they could entertain, enjoy the views over the garden bring more light into the internal rooms being the study and master bedroom.

The design was centred around the midway point of this room from the formal front room to the garden. The existing beams were exposed and refurbished  in order to show off the structure. Automatically ventilating, electronically controlled roof lights with rain sensors were fitted in between the exposed beams to bring natural light into the space. Full heigh fixed pane windows with bifolds were fitted to bring the garden inside.

An external patio was fitted to the same internal floor level in order to slide the bi-fold doors open and have the same level walkway. 

With the amount of glazing the thermal comfort of the room was controlled by trench heating to the glazing to combat heat loss with underfloor heating acting as a secondary heat source. The automatic ventilating roof-lights with automatic blinds control the heat in the summer where solar gain would need to the considered. 

We completed the designs, completed the technical drawings. Handled the tender process to instruct a builder. Project managed from start to completion with defects period. 

“Wouter was recommended by good friends of ours. We engaged him to draw up plans and to project manage the construction of our garden room.  The plans were prepared quickly and efficiently and we had plenty of opportunity to shape them. Wouter ran the tender process and selected a builder with whom we were very happy. He checked in on the building work regularly and we are very happy with the end product.  He was very responsive whenever we contacted him and we would definitely recommend him.”
