What are garden studios?

A garden studio is a great way to create extra space in your home or garden. Whether it’s an art studio, yoga retreat, or even just an office, a garden studio provides an ideal solution for those who are looking for a dedicated and private area to pursue their passions.

Garden studios come in all shapes and sizes and can be customised to fit your needs and taste. They typically feature large windows that bring natural light into the room, as well as insulation and waterproofing to ensure comfortable temperatures year-round.

Further benefits include being able to work away from the noise of the home environment and creating a tranquil space where you can focus on what matters most.

Benefits of Having Garden Studios

Having a garden studio offers numerous advantages for those who are looking for extra space in their home or garden. A garden studio allows you to create a private and dedicated area that can be customised to suit your needs and taste.

Garden studios feature large windows that bring natural light into the room, as well as insulation and waterproofing to ensure comfortable temperatures year-round. By having an area away from the hustle and bustle of your home environment, you can create a peaceful environment where you can focus on what matters most.

Additionally, having a garden studio provides additional benefits such as increased privacy, allowing visitors to come and go without disturbing anyone else in the household. Finally, it’s a great way to add value to your property if you ever decide to sell.

Why have garden studios?


To be considered “permitted development”, and not require planning permission, the garden studio needs to be:

  • Placed less than 2m from the boundary of the property 
  • The maximum overall height should not exceed 2.5m from ground level 
  • Has an internal floor area of less than 30m

If you meet these criteria then garden buildings are generally exempt from planning and building regulations. With our bespoke garden studio designs we can help you get the most out of the space you have for your dream room.

If you plan on using your garden studio as regular sleeping accommodation however you will need planning permission. This is because any sleep accommodation is required to meet building regulations.


Planning Permission Garden studios

You would also need planning if your garden building stands in front of your house fronting the highway, if it takes up more than half the land around the original house, or if it’s built on the property of a listed building or conservation area. 

If you are not sure of the requirements in Brighton apply to your build, or would like some more detailed advice we recommend you take a look at the government’s online planning portal.

Planning permission for garden studios in Brighton is an important step to consider when looking to build a new structure in your garden. Before you begin the process, it’s important to find out if you need planning permission from the local authority and what other requirements may be necessary.

Generally speaking, if your studio will be higher than two metres, it’s likely that planning permission will be required. In Brighton, this is usually done through the city council who will review all applications.
