Live Modern: Garden Home

Architecture & Interiors

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all live with our families all the time? Okay, maybe not everyone would want to live with their whole family, but some people really love hanging out with their loved ones. But sometimes you run out of space, and sometimes you need a little bit of distance, just a little bit. We love the modern solution of small garden homes or rooms in the backyard of a house, where families can have their own bits of space but just be a backyard apart.

Located in Kent, England, the Garden Home was designed by in.it.studios. “The site – the rear of a detached home in Kent, England, offers a unique contemporary living space for a couple who required additional room for elderly loved ones. The 2 bedroom home provides 98 sq/m of independent living space for the elderly parents and offers a solution for bringing the family together whilst providing the necessary separate living spaces.”

If you had the space and the budget, would you want anyone in your family to live in a garden home in your backyard?!

      Isn’t it though?! I just love the idea of having family close to you but still separated by a tiny distance. Wish everyone could have this for their extended families!
