Classic Open Plan Orangery for Country Home
Sitting proudly with the quintessential village church in the background, this beautiful orangery was designed to add more space to a listed country building. Our designers used their expertise to create a perfectly proportioned glazed extension that complemented the unique style of the main home. This orangery has a reduced classical parapet eaves design, which gives a lighter feel with double pilasters and feature brackets.
This exceptional garden room opens up the existing kitchen while creating more space, extending out onto a previously underused patio. The family can now enjoy a bright and elegant open-plan kitchen and dining area that they have always desired, enabling them to sit and admire the lovely garden views during family meal times.
A large roof lantern with spike finials and a narrow perimeter box gutter combined with the high ceilings and solar reflective glazing keeps the room feeling cool whilst allowing natural light to stream in. Two automatic, thermostatic double air vents in each lantern help to maintain a comfortable temperature, opening when the room warms up to draw the hot air up and create air flow, and closing as it cools or when the first drops of rain are detected. Two sets of folding stacking doors open up in the summer onto a smart patio, which then leads to the gently sloping garden.
Although designed as a contemporary living space, the orangery harmonises with the style and colour of the main house, creating a balanced design that looks perfectly at home in its surroundings. The brickwork matches the walls of the existing building, with boarded low-level walls and the timber joinery was painted in New Salt Stone, both inside and out, with Satin Chrome Ironmongery.
The ‘don’t move, improve’ trend has never been more popular, with homeowners choosing to invest in their property and extending their living space in order to create their dream home. Every one of our bespoke garden rooms reflects the client’s personal tastes while taking into account their lifestyle, property and requirements.
