Multi-use Garden Office in Manchester
30 October 2020
Region: Greater Manchester
We were delighted to be approached by our customer seeking a solution to his home working needs. He required a fully functioning home office as he worked from home for a substantial part of the week.
Our contemporary style, cedar-clad garden rooms are a masterpiece in design and functionality.
For our next project, in Wilmslow, Manchester, our client required a fully functioning home office as he worked from home for a substantial part of the week. He also wanted the room to be multi-use, as an attractive garden room and entertaining space.
The building itself measured 6m x 4m with sliding doors flanked by a full-length portrait window at either side plus an additional high-level transom window, allowing for natural light to flood into the room.
Through our expertise and ingenuity, we were able to advise on aspects of the design that fully optimised the room for dual-use.
Handcrafted cabinetry was designed to create a bar area that doubled up seamlessly as office storage as well as other multi-use storage within the room.
The luxury desk sourced could double up as a dining table or a pool table enabling a multitude of uses for both work and play.
For the technical aspects of the building, we worked with an audiovisual engineer to ensure the media connections were optimised within the garden building, with high-speed wifi and plenty of USB ports and sockets available.
To allow for comfortable year-round use, we installed a Toshiba air-conditioning unit to ensure our customer could control his ideal working climate.
Our usual high-quality materials were used as standard throughout, including brushed chrome internal fittings and anthracite external downlights, which perfectly compliment the aluminium doors and windows.
The finished building is the perfect blend for our customer. Smart, bright and contemporary for work and full of all the mod-cons to enable a swift transition for entertaining.
What our customers think
"I would just like to say how much I love my summerhouse which I bought from you and had delivered. I am so pleased with it. The four young men that came were really nice and polite, such a joy to have pleasant work men."Wendy Jones
"We have a Alderley summerhouse and a large cedar build annexe comprising of a lounge bedroom and shower room from Olympian. First class service from beginning to end. The designing of the cedar build in particular meant a careful attention to detail, with a high end finish and design changes along the way, carefully managed in a professional manner by Nick and the team.Mr and Mrs Woods
The construction took a little over a month to create the build and Ian / Connor were precise and professional, displaying expertise craftmanship throughout.
We recommend Olympian to everyone and could not be happier with our choice."
"Outstanding service provided by a team that take great pride in their product and rightly so.David Holbrook
The security device fitted by Olympian managed to thwart my local burglar, it really is a quality piece of kit!!
I have the security device fitted to both the workshops I have purchased from Olympian. The sheds were a great investment, protecting them with the security pack proved another worthwhile investment.
Well done Olympian and thank you.
"We needed to create some extra space at home to create a photography studio/ office. Having spent a long time searching suppliers of suitable buildings, we eventually had a short list of three, of which Olympian was one and the only one whose products we could physically see, as opposed to just trusting what is on the web.Adriano Henney
After visiting their site and talking to Nick, we decided to go with Olympian and can honestly say that the whole experience has been pretty near perfect.
On site during the build, the team were punctual and hard working, Ian and his team were a pleasure to have here.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Olympian to anyone considering a similar project."
"Really delighted with the shed recently purchased from Olympian Sheds. Excellent customer service received from Nick and Hannah who dealt with our order. We’ve now had 2 sheds and a storage box. Great quality, great products, all at a competitive price. Would definitely recommend."John Nuttall
