Gareth Phelen Physiotherapy Studio

INSPIRATION

Gareth is a qualified physiotherapist. He had taken Peter Cowman’s Living Architecture course and thought the econo-space would be perfect for a therapy room. He got permission from his family to build on a small plot of their land on which was an easily accessible site for potential clients.
The econo-space is economical and relatively easy to and quick to put up. It is a structure that feels sound and permanent, unlike a shed-type building.
He built it himself with some help, relatively quickly. It suits his needs perfectly.
