An Office Room Over Garage Space
All our oak garages are designed to optimise useful space. The sloping roof offers a comfortable standing height, which also provides ample desk space, affording room for desktop monitors and storage under desks for cabinets, computers, etc. for space efficiency.
Natural light is a crucial feature when constructing any pleasant working environment; at Oakewrights we make this a priority, using dormer windows and skylights which, working with the sloping ceilings of our Gloucester Room Over Garage offices, enable vast amounts of light to flood the workspace and create a pleasing atmosphere - no strained eyes here.
Our office spaces are perfect for work-from-home businesses. With a design that features a meeting room up one end for visiting clients or even a workshop below with office space above. We also cater for any size of business, with different garage sizes to suit your needs - whether you are a sole trader, a small business or a larger company, we can design an office space to accommodate the scale of your workforce.
It is possible also to use the space below for staff parking. The large bays can accommodate most 4x4 vehicles or store many push bikes if your team supports a local cycle to work scheme. To further maximise the office space in the oak structure the below area could contain the kitchen and welfare facilities as an opportunity for your hard workers to relax, replenish and recharge. Maybe even a ping-pong table for Friday afternoon’s wind down and team bonding session.
You don’t have to stick to the standard design of a Gloucester oak garage with room above. We offer a completely bespoke service meaning we could design a space with a flair that best represents your company or small business – that could be a horseshoe-shaped building for an equestrian event company or a slide for your employees to whizz down to their mode of transport at the end of the working day.
The standard design for the three-bay Gloucester garage can comfortably house 12 staff members in the area above along with their desk computers, filing cabinets and stationary pot. The roof space can be divided up into sections depending on whether teams need to be sectioned together or left completely open plan for quick and easy discussion across the room.
Oakwrights can work with you to achieve the aesthetic and overall finish that you desire; from personnel doors, dormer windows, roof lights/skylights down to garage doors, French doors and bi-folds.
