Over the years, we have helped design & install all shapes and sizes of art studios for a whole host of artists for painting, sculpture, graphic design, illustration, crafts studios and even an art school. All these creatives have the same thing in common, they prefer to work from the comfort of their very own garden sanctuary in a purpose-built art studio.
Here we offer our design advice & a few ideas to consider and inspire you in your search for a garden art studio. Take a look at our galleries to see lots more images of our customer's art studios for getting creative.
The Log Cabin and Shed (above) makes for a versatile garden art studio that can be made to measure to suit your garden plot. This cabin features a large light and airy garden studio with an integral garden store (handy for storing art and craft materials, neatly stored out of the way). With glazing along its entire frontage, it offers plenty of natural light making it the perfect artist's garden studio. With large double doors, there is easy access to those large canvases too. This Log Cabin art studio pictured measures 6m x 3m but can be made smaller or larger to your custom design.
Double glazing & an insulation upgrade make the garden studio a useable space all year-round use, and foundations and full electrical installation can be provided if you opt for our installation service. All our garden art studios come with double glazing & multi-point locking doors as standard, helping to keep your precious artwork safe.
Our range of Linea Garden studios (example shown above) are a contemporary, fully insulated range available in a size and style to suit you. This example is used by our customer as a pottery studio. With its full-length glazed door & windows, you can open them up to let natural daylight flood in. This art studio can be pre-painted in a range of colours and the exterior is finished in a durable larch ribbed cladding for that contemporary design touch.
You can of course change doors & windows to take account of how the light falls in your garden and you can add skylights for overhead light too.
A flat roof (under 2.5m) high comes as standard on our Linea range and the clean lines of the Linea are a popular option. These studios are 2.5m tall enabling them to fall within permitted development so in most case they do not require planning permission.
The Linea garden art studio pictured measures 3.5 x 2.5m but can be made in any size to suit your needs.
A quality garden log cabin, like the Flat Roof studio shown above, makes the perfect artist's garden studio. Solid timber is an excellent choice for an artist’s studio. The solid timber walls help regulate and absorb moisture in the environment to keep your workspace warm and dry for year-round use.
The walls are robust, hardwearing, and incredibly strong which is great if you need to pop a nail or screw in the wall to hang or display your work.
Most artists prefer to avoid direct sunlight and find Northern light is always best. When we help you in the design of your garden art studio, we take these considerations into account. Adding skylights into the design provides an additional light source. Long glazed doors & windows offer a light and airy feel and can be incorporated into the design. Choose doors & windows that best suit your purpose, add dividing walls to create additional rooms if required, and a canopy or veranda for shade. The options are endless, and the choice really is yours.
If you like to paint large canvases plenty of headroom is important so, consider a pent or pitched roof art studio.
