Garden offices: not just a pandemic craze

1 March 2024

In the heart of lockdown, with frustrated home workers seeking an escape from the kitchen table, garden offices experienced a surge in popularity. Some expected the craze to end with the pandemic. [1] In 2024, however, it seems that garden offices might be here to stay.

Searches rise

Searches for ‘garden offices’ are 22% higher than before the pandemic, research shows. With hybrid working having become the norm for many employees, interest in garden offices is staying strong. Indeed, the boost to ‘garden office’ searches correspond with the number of searches for ‘hybrid working’ increasing from an annual average of 120 searches before the first lockdown to nearly 119,000 searches in 2022/2023.

A lasting trend

The last decade has seen a significant rise in the number of properties listed as having an office in the garden. Another pandemic trend – the ‘race for space’ – may have ended but green space and a good homework environment are still appealing.
