Fairview Farm – A Quality Garden Office from SMART

Name – Fairview Farm

Brief – To create an activity room

SMART Building – Suffolk Barn 4.3m x 3.2m

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”.

‘SMART Were Exceptionally Helpful and Supportive’

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.”
