Timber Garden Studio

Softwood garden cabin, Highgate, London.

Located in a conservation area in Highgate, North London, we had to wait several months for planning permission before starting. Once planning was approved we discussed the removal of the Apple tree with the client but they and their cat liked it so much they wanted us to use it as inspiration for the build

The softwood garden cabin rests on Oak posts to keep it from the ground and is finished with Pine weatherboards. The door was salvaged from a reclaim yard and we are really pleased we did. The unit is fully insulated and also has acoustic plaster-boarding within so that when it's used as a music studio the sound doesn't leak. The flat roof includes two roof-lights making it pleasant inside. The deck outside provides a decent place to sit in the summer months.
