We built your dream garden retreat 

- go on your own adventure 
 
 
Otilia Mitrofan, a Director of this family-run business, tells the story: 
We wanted a high-quality, environmentally friendly way to create a healthy and comfortable retreat in our own garden. 
 
When I decide to do something I want to find the best approach, so I have to do it myself. It took some courage, but we decided to go on an adventure to find the best possible solution. In two months we had researched the options, ordered the materials, laid the base, and built a new space for ourselves. 
We were delighted with the finished result and we were convinced that other people would want their own bespoke spaces at home using our flexible, sustainable approach. 
 
We started Alexander Antonio (AA) Garden Retreats, named after my son, who helped to build our own retreat, so that other people could enjoy the same experience. 
 
 

Made in the UK 

The quality and environmental credentials of all our materials are important considerations for us. We have taken great care to find exceptional suppliers in the UK and we specify and coordinate every aspect of each project from start to finish. 
 
Whether your project is large or small we can all on trusted architects, quantity surveyors, and planning advisors to make sure every detail is right for you. We are committed to making sure that we can all be proud of the retreat we build for you. 
 
Your will have high-performance insulation in the floor and walls, with double- or triple- glazing for your doors and windows, ventilation and heat recovery, and underfloor heating to maintain the perfect temperature. You can be warmed from a cool 18ºC to 21ºC in just a few minutes, and once your feet feel warm everything is always fine. 

Built as if it is our own 

We build every installation as if we were building it for ourselves, with the same enthusiasm and care. Each one is designed to meet your exact specification, so you can choose the type of cladding in top quality Canadian cedar, Siberian larch, for example. There’s a huge range of double- or triple-glazed windows and doors, and you can specify the interior layout, lighting and all the finishes. 
 
Whether you want to keep home working apart from your family life or need a space to run a yoga class, a cookery school or gym, your retreat will provide a healthy, calming space for you to use all year round. If you simply want to create the perfect place for peace and solitude, you will always have a haven in your garden retreat.
