Multi-functional Office Garden Room – Abridge, Essex

This sleek garden room located in Abridge, Essex, uses every square inch of space and is a great example of how Hawksbeck can create the ultimate multi-functional garden room space, ideal for modern living.

Garden Room with not one but three main functions

This multi-purpose garden room has three main functions: from 9 till 5, the space is a productive office area, ideal for focusing on work tasks and a quiet space for holding meetings. Then during the weekends and evenings, it becomes a home gym workout space, perfect for keeping active during the winter and just a stone’s throw from the house. Finally, there’s an extra room designed for storage – kitted out as a handy laundry room with built-in appliances, including a fridge-freezer and tumble dryer.

The garden room is light-filled due to sliding doors and expansive wrap-around corner windows.

This cosy yet super multi-functional space is filled with natural light due to the expansive wrap-around corner window and sleek sliding door, both double-glazed and sealed, so noise from outside is kept at bay.  This combined with Hawksbeck’s use of structurally insulated panels means plenty of heat is kept in, ensuring a warm and quiet garden room space all year round. The windows and door frames are made from uPVC, which means they are durable, long-lasting, and easy to maintain, as they can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge.

Dura composite timber cladding in Alaskan cedar

A versatile garden room from Hawksbeck can come in many different shapes and sizes and with plenty of choice when it comes to exterior cladding.  Dura composite timber cladding in Alaskan cedar was specified for this project. Dura is an elegant, durable, sustainable, and flexible material that is anti-rot, easy to maintain and quick to install by our building teams, making it an ideal choice for a sleek, modern-looking garden room exterior.

The Dura composite timber comes in different widths and lengths, so it’s easy to order; exactly what you need for your garden room project. And because it’s made from recycled materials—glass bottles, plastic containers, and old sawmill waste—you can be sure that your project is eco-friendly too!

Handy storage area 

To the rear of the garden room, you will find a hidden dura-cladded exterior door, which opens into to a small separate room used by the clients as a handy outside utility room and storage area.  Our clients have used this space to hide away a fridge, freezer and even a tumble dryer, all powered through the garden rooms electrical connection, which the Hawksbeck team took care of.

We are over the moon with our new garden studio! We looked extensively at a number of different companies but had complete confidence in Jon from the minute we met him. He was patient, informative and did not push us at all.

The team who built the studio were all great guys, the quality is exceptional and everything was kept clean and tidy at the end of every day. Ellie, who managed the project, kept everything on track and was very responsive to any questions we had throughout.

We honestly couldn’t recommend Hawksbeck enough, a fantastic local business who we wish every success to as they scale in the future. Thanks again guys!
