Striking Orangery in the Suburbs
This striking orangery extension sits comfortably at the rear of this detached home in the London suburbs, its sense of presence reinforced by its contrasting colour palette.
Outside, the black finish accentuates the clean lines of the building’s structure as well as the finer details such as the curved glazing bars in the clerestory window. Inside, however, the joinery is subtler and allows the character of the interior to shine through.
The new space has its own light, bright identity and brings a sense of light and space to the pre-existing kitchen and drawing room. It improves the flow of the home, linking all the rooms together yet still clearly defining their uses; a cosy snug, a family kitchen, a sunny sitting area and a place for more formal dining.
One of the benefits of new glass technologies is that rooms can be furnished like any other room in the house because the glass will reduce the levels of UV and thus the fading of fabrics and furnishings.
