Get Your Garden Room Right

Springtime is outdoor living time. Make the most of yours with Susan Henderson's handy guide to garden rooms.

"In more urban conditions, privacy becomes crucial to creating useable outdoor space, and buildings become a key to the solution. This is true for commercial spaces as well as residential, and the retail courtyards along East Palace Avenue off the Santa Fe Plaza are a wonderful example. The discussion here also applies to smaller civic spaces within the public domain, as most of the criteria needed for garden rooms apply at that scale as well."

Henderson goes on to talk about what matters in garden courtyards:

  1. Proportion is key.
  2. Shape matters.
  3. Orientation is critical.
  4. Keep it simple.
  5. Balance sun and shade.
