The Future of Remote Work – How Garden Offices Are Shaping the Way We Work

The way we work has undergone a profound change in recent years, with remote work becoming an increasingly common and accepted practice. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, a growing number of companies had adopted flexible work arrangements, allowing employees to work from the comfort of their own homes. However, the global health crisis has accelerated this shift, making remote work the new norm for millions worldwide.

The Evolution of Remote Working in the UK

Before the pandemic, remote work had already gained traction, with companies recognising the potential benefits, such as increased productivity, reduced overhead costs, and the ability to attract talent from a global pool – and as employers and employees alike have experienced the benefits and challenges of remote work, it has become clear that this mode of employment is here to stay, setting the stage for further innovation and adaptation in the years to come.

The Normalisation of Working From Home

According to Wiserd, the share of employees working from home before the pandemic was 4.7% in the UK. This dramatically increased to 46.6% in April 2020, understandably, but since then a quarter of people still work from home at least part-time. The pandemic has undoubtedly been a catalyst for a fundamental shift in how we approach our professional lives, paving the way for a future where the traditional office may no longer be the sole hub of productivity.

Garden Offices as a Solution

These dedicated workspaces are shaping the future of how we approach our professional lives. For the last few decades, we have stood ahead of the curve in terms of offering a diverse range of garden rooms designed to cater to the needs of modern remote workers. Our designs are built with durability and practicality in mind, featuring insulation and double or triple-glazing to ensure comfortable year-round use.

The key benefit of a garden office lies in its ability to create a clear separation between personal and professional life. By having a designated workspace outside the main home, remote workers can more effectively maintain healthy boundaries and minimise the distractions that often come with working from the kitchen table or living room. This segregation has been shown to enhance productivity, as individuals can better focus on their tasks without the constant pull of domestic responsibilities.

A garden office environment can also have a positive impact on mental health. The sense of having a dedicated workspace, coupled with the ability to step outside and enjoy the natural surroundings, can help alleviate feelings of isolation that often accompany remote work. This is why we offer such a high level of customisation with each of our garden office designs, as this further enables workers to create a space that reflects their individual preferences and inspires them to do their best work.

Our Variety of Garden Office Designs for Future-Forward Homes

These dedicated workspaces have the potential to fundamentally reshape the way we approach our jobs in the years to come. We offer a diverse range of garden office designs, from contemporary to traditional styles.

  • Contemporary Garden Office: A popular choice, featuring a clean and minimalist aesthetic. This design includes a recessed porch area to protect from the elements, paired with the option of upgrading to cedar cladding to create a hyper-modern and sophisticated look.
  • Modern Garden Office: This design incorporates a recessed front section, adding depth and visual interest to the exterior. Accented with aluminium bi-fold doors and casement windows, this model exudes a sleek and urban vibe, making it well-suited for most garden settings.
  • Curved Roof Garden Office: Introducing a distinctive bespoke element to the lineup, this stunning design, clad in rich cedar, features a graceful curved roof that adds a touch of architectural flair to any garden. The expansive overhang and optional side screens also create a welcoming and versatile workspace.
  • Micro Office Pods: For those gardens with minimal space, we have developed bespoke office pods, made to fit in the tightest spaces while remaining functional and attractive. Our micro office pods come with all the same features as our larger models, but on a more compact scale – from quality timber cladding to highly secure uPVC windows and doors, placed exactly where you want them.

Regardless of the chosen style, our garden offices are engineered to provide a comfortable, productive, and energy-efficient work environment, empowering remote workers to thrive in the comfort of their gardens.


How Garden Offices Are Changing the Way We Work in 2024

As we look towards the future, it’s clear that the rise of remote work and the growing popularity of garden offices will continue to shape the professional landscape. In 2024 and beyond, we anticipate that changes in remote work policies, driven by both employers and employees, will further influence the design and utilisation of these versatile builds.
