Fairview Farm is a day provision for young people aged 16-30 who have disabilities or difficulties. They offer bespoke programmes to meet individual needs and through a range of activities each day, they aim to develop academic ability, increase independence and social skills and broaden employability opportunities and confidence.
The brief was very specific but SMART Garden Rooms, who supply and install quality garden offices to customers across the UK, were soon able to find the perfect solution by combining the traditional style and warmth of the Suffolk Barn with the practicalities of the wipe-clean Popular 1 interior.
The hand-painted midnight black Suffolk Barn nestles perfectly in its Suffolk countryside surroundings. By using luxury wood-effect vinyl flooring and built-in shelving, we were able to provide Fairview Farm with a quality garden office which functions as their perfect outdoor activity room.
Georgina, who founded the Fairview Farm project, told us that the Suffolk Barn, which they have lovingly named ‘Willow’, facilitates a wide range of activities.
“For some it’s a safe quiet space, for others it’s a hub of creativity and fun, but for us all it’s a magical special place where we can grow, where we can learn and where we can truly be ourselves,” she said.
When asked what difference the Suffolk Barn has made to her operation, Georgina said:
“As a relatively new organisation which provides aspirational day care for young adults with disabilities, we believe a high-quality environment is an essential component of our ethos. This beautiful yet practical barn has provided us with a dedicated creative space where a wide range of activities are facilitated all year round.
“Equally, the additional space has enabled us to increase the number of young people we can support each day and subsequently appoint two more fantastic staff”.
Georgina added: “SMART were exceptionally helpful and supportive right through the process. This was very important to me personally as a busy business owner. However, what was really fantastic for us was how amazing the grounds and installation teams were. Due to our property, it was not a straightforward installation and at all times they had a positive and solution-focused attitude.
“Most importantly, they were completely respectful that at all times our young people came first, and they were happy to chat and engage with all of our young people, which really ensured the smooth running of the business during the installation process.”

Everything was clearly explained and we are very happy with our office. We feel we made the right choice picking Smart Garden Offices, many thanks
Excellent service, great team, can highly recommend all aspects of SMART – they do what it says on the tin and the product is superb
“A fantastic experience from start to finish, a wonderful addition to our home! A lovely touch from the electrician; leaving a note to say how you hope we enjoy the office as much as you have enjoyed building it – little details like this just made it a pleasure. Never expected in a million years that it would run so smoothly but it’s been like silk for us. Thank you.”M Gardner, Bradford
“Your guys have done an outstanding job and I am so delighted with the end product. The appearance, finish and size of the Trio is everything I wanted and some more. But there is something else. Your guys Tony and Rob were excellent. Efficient, knowledgable guys who knew what they were doing and who did not waste a second doing it. And they were tidy workers too who were sensitive to the surroundings and neighbours. They were a credit to you and Smart Offices. So this is a big thank you from someone looking at their new office and who is really happy with the result and what Smart have done.”
hursday was a blur but Tony and Arris were fantastic on both days!! The office was gone by 2pm on the Wednesday and back up by 1pm on the Thursday. They just got on with it and made the whole thing stress free so thank you all so much for all your help – I am so very grateful..
Your service was excellent from concept to build; you could not have been more helpful. The build itself was breathtaking in it’s organisation and execution and nothing was too much trouble for your installation team; they were helpful and knowledgeable throughout – even fitting water butts at very short notice for us. When we had a small issue with the door adjustment you went out of your way to get someone to us as soon as possible. I can’t fault your after-care service.
“We were really impressed with the professionalism of the whole process right from the initial site survey and design through to the actual build. There is clearly a Smart solution for virtually any situation and it is great to gain a brand new space which is both functional and aesthetically pleasing! We would certainly have another one if we ever moved house and wanted to create extra room. Tony and Rob’s workmanship was a joy to watch!”
“The team, all of whom have been most pleasant to have around, have now finished and we are absolutely delighted. The building does look ‘smart’ and the whole job has been carried out with maximum efficiency.”
“The office is now part of the furniture and is great. I am 100% glad that I did it and went with you guys.”
“If it means anything (and I’m sure it does) we believe that getting the office (and especially the Trio) rather than fighting inside the house was absolutely the right thing to do.”
“Keith and I are very impressed with Charlie, his installers and his products and recommend Smart Garden offices unhesitatingly”
“The office is fantastic and exceeds expectations.”
“It’s a pleasure doing business with people who do what they say, on time, professionally, and with no fuss. The building is perfect for my needs.”
“We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone.”
“I have worked right through this dreadful winter, and thanks to the brilliant insulation, remained warm and snug using only a small, economic halogen heater. My office is cosier than the house!”
“First of all, I love the new office. May I say what a great job the guys did on the build. Hard working and extremely pleasant, particularly considering the rotten weather yesterday.”
“We’re delighted by our very ‘Smart’ Garden Office. “
