Aaron Priestman, BA, MSc., established Brighton Bike Sheds following a career as a London based landscaper with a real passion for working with timber and creating vibrant outdoor spaces and structures in urban environments.
In 2005, Having completed his Masters in Environmental Architecture, Aaron’s interests broadened into the design and construction of low energy garden buildings using sustainable materials and construction methods.
Aaron moves to Brighton and builds a sedum roofed bike shed in the front garden of his terraced city centre home which not only housed the family’s four bikes but became a showpiece, uncovering a demand for attractive, sustainable and secure bicycle storage and leading to the founding of Brighton Bike Sheds.
Today, Brighton Bike Sheds operates with a small, highly skilled team specialising in sustainable construction.
Every element of the design, construction process and use of materials found in a Brighton Bike Shed is carefully considered and tested with the aim of delivering a product which combines style with function, low environmental impact, lasting quality and of course security.
Bespoke or Self-assembled, every Brighton Bike Shed is built to order with care.
With the success of Brighton Bike Sheds bike storage solutions in South East England came demand from further afield in the UK and overseas. To meet this, Aaron and his team developed of a range of models available in kit form for self-assembly. These are available in a choice of size, timber and roof options which give customers with basic DIY skills the opportunity and satisfaction of putting together their own Brighton Bike Shed (and saving on installation costs too).
Each Brighton Bike Shed, is hand made with care in our workshops and backed with a service to match. Rest assured, you’ll find the self-assembled kit range features the same selection of sustainable timbers, galvanised and stainless steel fixings, robust fittings, strong locks and the distinctive, integrated Secure Bar that distinguish a genuine Brighton Bike Sheds product.
