Article content: “The humble garden shed isn’t just somewhere to store your rusty old tools and unwanted junk. Nowadays the smart set are building fully equipped outdoor offices and bespoke garden studios as a stylish extension of the house. Here we present the bare facts”

Designed by architects and available in a dazzling number of configurations, the Ecospace Studio 01 is the entry level model in Ecospace’s range of contemporary garden studios. The exterior is clad in sustainable western red cedar and the 200mm thick walls are fully insulated for all year–round usability. All of the double glazed sliding doors and windows are housed in Scandinavian pine frames and secured with window locks and a five–lever mortise lock. The roof can be covered with low–maintenance shrubbery to help your studio to blend in with the rest of the garden. However, it’s inside where things get really fancy. Where underfloor heating, Freudenburg wear resistant floors, birch walls, recessed lighting, brushed stainless steel electrical points, phone and data access and flush fitted spot lights are just a few of the home comforts that await. And if you really want to push the boat out then it’s also possible to order larger units with a separate bathroom and kitchenette, or even a mezzanine sleeping level.”
