Round Garden Building In Dorset Case Study

Our round garden buildings offer something special for many sites. We were able to install one of these beautiful round timber structures on-site in Dorset in just one week. Both the shape and materials of this construction make it an eco-friendly and sustainable choice. 

The Brief

The brief was to create a green and sustainable structure to enhance the amenity of the garden and create a restful and relaxing garden retreat. The structure was also to blend in harmoniously with its natural surroundings and create a structure that was eco-friendly in its construction, and energy-efficient while in use. A round garden building perfectly fitted the bill. Round buildings fit into their natural surroundings in a unique and special way. What is more, they use fewer materials than a traditional square or rectangular structure and are more efficient to heat while in use. 

Challenges and Design

When it came to materials use and design, sustainability was key. Our round garden buildings are the perfect solution for green-minded individuals. These buildings have constructional timber floor sections and vertical wall struts, base plates and wall plates made from oak or western red cedar. They are clad externally with western red cedar and roofed with constructional timber, sarking boards of Douglas fir and cedar shingles. 

The environmental credentials of the round building were also enhanced because no foundations were required. These structures are seated on groundscrews or on fully adjustable pads. This means that the carbon footprint of one of these buildings is far lower than that of many other garden buildings. 

Since our round buildings are fully customisable when it comes to glazing, door position and finishes, it was easy to create a bespoke solution for this property, as we can do on any other site. A simple, quick and straightforward build can still deliver a tailored solution for our clients. 

The Result

High-quality technical specifications throughout mean that these structures are built to last. The round garden building is not only highly functional, practical and aesthetically pleasing, it also met the needs of the client without harming planet or people. This is a charming, relaxing place to spend time. It adds to, rather than detracting from, the natural beauty of the environment.

We built our first oak building back in 2004, for our own use. Our name, Loosehanger, comes from the location of that first build. It is believed to come from the old English term for ‘wooded bank’.

Oak is a material that will allow new builds to blend in – in a way which few other materials allow.
