Garden Living – 1997 to Present Day
Garden Living started as a renovations firm back in the late 90s specialising in late Victorian and Edwardian properties in London, Surrey and Hampshire. We have always been a company that believes in its current day motto – Creating Space to Live.
The business evolved from pure renovators to house builders – individual in style and design. In a later post we will show you our latest creating in Hampshire – a 4 bed home where Garden Living managed to secure planning (in a National Park) and then went on to construct a family home.
Working with Victorian and Edwardian properties Garden Living have always been a company that is environmentally conscious. After all part of the passion with renovations is reinstatement of the existing from fireplaces, to servant bells to doors and flooring. In the example below bringing the staircase back up to original condition took over 100 man hours.
It is this environmental consciousness that drove Garden Living into the world of Garden Rooms and Granny Annex back in the early noughties. Garden Living took the decision to move into the world of new technologies to delivery highly insulated homes, offices and playrooms – for adult or toddler.
The fabrication technique uses primarily recycled materials, the cladding is from FSC managed sources. And by used a back garden we are tapping into services that are already in place.
Here are a few photos from a not too distant Garden Living renovation turning a 6-bedsit 1906 villa into a single family home at over 3500 square feet.
