At the heart of the quaint Dorset Road in Henleaze lies a testament to bespoke craftsmanship and thoughtful design—a stunning garden studio constructed by Build Bristol Group.

This unique venture into building a space that harmonises work, leisure, and storage reflects BBG’s versatility beyond their typical scope of renovations and extensions.

The Dorset Road project began with a family’s evolving needs. A picturesque Victorian house, nestled at the end of the row, boasted an expansive garden. Faced with the demand for a home office and a dedicated area for teenagers to unwind, the family engaged the expertise of Bristol-based architect Alison Turner. Her task: to envision a garden studio that seamlessly blended with the surroundings while meeting the diverse requirements.

The architectural vision materialised into a space that transcends the ordinary. Siberian Larch cladding, a cedar chippings roof, and sleek aluminum frames were meticulously chosen to integrate the studio with the lush garden, creating a visually striking ambiance. Build Bristol embraced this unique challenge with enthusiasm, deviating from their usual repertoire of renovations and extensions.

The project not only addressed the practical needs of the family but also became a celebration of craftsmanship and attention to detail. The studio houses a functional home office and also provides a tranquil space for teenagers to unwind. Storage, a crucial component of a city outbuilding, was seamlessly incorporated into the design, showcasing Build Bristol’s commitment to practicality.

Upon completion, the clients were effusive in their praise for Build Bristol. According to them, ‘the company’s standard of work and attention to detail set them apart. When challenges arose, the BBG team exhibited professionalism, working collaboratively to swiftly resolve issues. The reliability of having builders on-site throughout the entire process, rather than being shuffled to other projects midway, was a notable point of satisfaction.

Dom and Hannah, the faces behind Build Bristol, were described as approachable and personable, adding a human touch to the construction process.’ The clients not only recommend Build Bristol highly but express a willingness to engage their services again—a testament to the positive experience of bringing their dream garden studio to life.

In conclusion, the Dorset Road project stands as a testament to the creativity, adaptability, and professionalism of The Build Bristol Group. As they continue to push boundaries and embark on diverse projects, the completion of this garden studio project reaffirms their commitment to turning architectural dreams into tangible, beautifully crafted realities.
