Having inherited the existing conservatory with the property the client felt it was very dated, not comfortable to use all year round due to the build quality, and limited in space not allowing it to fully integrate with the open plan kitchen/family room behind. Secondary to these issues was the garden layout, which although professionally landscaped by the previous owners was dominated by a raised fish pond resulting in this area not being used to entertain or socialise effectively. Our proposed solution was a very contemporary open living space deliberately designed to contrast with the property by using anthracite coloured frames set against a premium finish of monocouche render available in a range of textures and colours to the walls for a virtually no maintenance durable finish. To compliment the appearance of the Orangery we modified the design of the existing landscaping, removing the fish pond and laying vitreous paving tiles in a contemporary style & pattern. The combination of the new larger living space with access to the garden via bi-fold doors on two sides, and the changes to the landscaping has transformed the way the family are now able to use the full potential that the property has to offer.
Our aim as always is to offer to customise any building rather than adopt a one size fits all approach so each project has its own unique features where possible. In this case a bold contemporary style was to be achieved, which is reflected in the fascia detail of clean lines without any visible guttering. A system of aluminium fascia was specified and tailored to the exact requirements of our design finished in a powder coated paint finish to ensure durability & colour fastness to match the bi-fold doors. The roof was constructed by our skilled carpenters to form inset concealed channels to collect the rainwater taking the down pipe discreetly through the overhang avoiding any unsightly guttering.
