Rochford

The Brief

Our client did not just want a typical conservatory but required that the building could effectively disappear providing a seamless transition between the living space and the garden so that there was a real sense of being outdoors without any separation, enjoying the sounds of nature. As the property had been extended over the years in a range of styles it was a requirement to create a conservatory in stark contrast to the existing property with a very contemporary feel more in keeping with the idea of a garden pavilion than a home extension. To improve the flow of the ground floor both the kitchen & lounge were opened up to the new conservatory creating a central hub for family living and socialising. In order to bring the whole concept together we designed & constructed a new deck and surrounding landscaping.

Design Notes

As the bi-fold doors were to be become the principle feature of the conservatory construction we recommended that these be manufactured in white aluminium as opposed to the PVCu due to the slimmer framing and superior structural integrity in very hot conditions. It followed that although feasible that the window and door elements could still be in PVCu it was desirable to match systems so this conservatory is a great example of a fully aluminium construction.

Although a premium is paid for this product type it can be easier to keep in pristine condition over the longer term and contrary to peoples perception of aluminium products with the latest ploymide construction of the material can now meet the most challenging energy performance standards today, no longer being called eclipsed by PVCu, which is why it is the dominant material used in all commercial construction and high end architect. 

"Everyone who has visited has remarked upon the quality and finished"

"How pleased we are with the finished conservatory and surround"

"Please pass on our thanks to all your staff"
