Working from home is rapidly becoming the new normal for people. Guidelines to work from home where possible, has meant that companies have been quick to adapt their workforce practices and many have found this more flexible approach to working is not only achievable, but also more cost effective and productive.
Research has shown that contact with nature and sunlight can reduce stress, improve cognitive function and enhance mood and creativity. These and other outcomes can increase health and well-being, as well as productivity.
Our bespoke garden office designs use elements of nature which have a soothing effect on the human psyche. An oak framed garden office allows for balancing the moments of intense work throughout the day with moments of rest and relaxation. Biophilic work places contribute to reducing stress and increase job satisfaction.
The client explains why she chose an oak frame to create a home office environment that works for her:
“The inspiration around the space was to feel connected to nature – the oak and glass offer a panoramic view of my garden. The oak frame brings the outside in somehow and allows a feeling of calm which is important for me in my work. The benefits from working in a garden office are huge. I actually ‘go to work’, and can separate myself from the hubbub of the house.”
For the client this was an important business investment. “Traditional hand-made, oak-frame buildings attract a premium, but my thinking was that this would be the best investment I could make in my business. The oak is sustainably grown, and the carbon footprint is low in terms of heat etc. It is an amazing space to work that inspires me every day.”
