Partnership provides sustainable, high-level design and customization for ADUs
LOUISVILLE, Colo, March 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With the rise in demand for backyard home offices, flex spaces, and home fitness centers during the pandemic, Studio Shed announced an exclusive partnership with Marvin. The leader in modern, prefabricated outdoor structures and ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) is collaborating with the premier manufacturer of made-to-order windows and doors to bring bold architectural design, durability, and high performance to each of the Studio Shed models.
"Homeowners are looking for high-performing, top-of-the-line insulation features and sleek designs for their backyard sanctuaries," said Studio Shed co-founder Jeremy Nova. "Our partnership with Marvin enables us to offer hundreds of window and door orientations for our customers—from durable yet striking and maintenance-free windows to gorgeous 8-foot sliding door entrances and upgrades throughout."
During the pandemic, Studio Shed has seen an 150% increase in sales, particularly for its backyard home office designs and ADU models. Available in numerous sizes and with complete customization through an innovative 3D online design center, Studio Shed's modular system and DIY kit installation process positions the company as the leader in the ADU space.
"When designing projects and indoor spaces, we are inspired by the way people work and live and look to improve connections with the outdoors by capturing abundant natural light through our windows and doors," said Christine Marvin, vice president of design at Marvin. "Like us, Studio Shed is creating well-designed spaces for the shifting needs of how people want to live, work, and foster new kinds of connection."
Marvin windows are Zone Certified and UV resistant, providing superior protection built to withstand harsh conditions. Each shed is created with recycled materials and high-efficiency glass engineered to create minimal waste. Dimensional lumber used is FSC-certified and all unused metal in the fabrication of the windows is recycled.
"While exceptional product quality and versatility is key when looking at reputable companies as partners," Nova said, "we also look at the companies themselves. It's important for us to align ourselves with like-minded, socially-conscious companies, and Marvin is a natural fit for us on both fronts. It's also always our preference to buy American-made and -sourced products, and Marvin's simplified options allow us to do just that with a product offering that can fit the durability needs of our customers from coast to coast."
The Marvin announcement comes on the heels of Studio Shed's partnership with Acorn Finance last month, offering customers a simplified payments option to review lending offers online. The company plans to announce additional collaborations throughout the year.
