Spacecraft Garden Rooms Unveil Eco-Friendly Garden Yoga Studio
By: Spacecraft Garden Rooms Limited
This stunning addition to their portfolio combines functionality, affordability, and a deep commitment to sustainability, allowing homeowners to experience the joy of nature up close.
"We were commissioned to design and build a yoga studio in a beautiful garden, to teach lessons of up to 15 people. They had a tight budget and wanted it to be natural and unobtrusive."
Embracing eco-consciousness, the rooms use ground screws in place of concrete foundations to minimise the its use and ensure a minimal ecological footprint.
The studio also showcases sustainable materials like locally sourced Sweet Chestnut hardwood. It is renowned for its durability and resistance to rot, thriving in the region for centuries. "Sweet Chestnut ages beautifully, weathering to a lovely silver colour." says Ben.
External cladding and flooring made of cork boast exceptional insulation properties, while being sustainably harvested from the bark of Cork Oak trees. Unlike traditional timber harvesting, cork extraction allows trees to absorb 3-5 times more carbon during growth.
This antibacterial, warm, and biodegradable material also creates an inviting space that effortlessly merges with its natural surroundings, cultivating a relaxed haven for yoga practice and meditation.
"It's very cost-effective, has thermal characteristics, and blends beautifully with the garden." Feldman elaborates.
The yoga studio blends seamlessly with the surrounding garden, inviting the outside in through its large bi-fold doors, glazed windows, and strategically placed horizontal windows.
The easy flow between indoor and outdoor spaces welcomes in natural light and fresh air, opening the studio up to the garden's natural serenity for yoga practice. Its vaulted ceiling adds a sense of openness and tranquillity.
Eco-friendly aspects of the studio extend beyond aesthetics, however. Integrated LED lighting ensures its energy efficiency, while the high-performance glazed windows and doors optimise insulation, reducing any heating and air conditioning consumption and costs.
Garden rooms are an innovative and cost-effective way to expand the usable space in your home, while also increasing its value. Property expert Robert Ellis of Nutbrook Property estimates they can add value of around 1.5 times the cost of installing the room.
In addition to their stunning project, Spacecraft Garden Rooms have been developing new pre-designed collections, including their Saturn range. These exciting additions will soon be available at: https://spacecraftdesign.co.uk.
Spacecraft Garden Rooms let homeowners create a practical and elegant work or leisure space, while simultaneously making a sound investment in their home. They can merge a love for the planet, with passion for work-life balance.
