This orangery extension in the Peak District has been specially designed to harmonise with the adjoining arts and crafts property. The design picks up subtleties in the fenestration from the original building to produce a classic design that will not date.
Incorporating more than one roof lantern in an orangery design requires careful thought and consideration by the designer. In this example, three roof lanterns are used to independently illuminate and identify spaces and their use; a place to sit, a central walkway and a dining area. A visually appealing and effective way to give zones to a large space.
The careful choice of colour for this orangery creates a unique charm. The black casements with leaded clerestory complement the house windows, providing contrast against the subtle green (Portland Stone) used on the framework, giving a softer overall look and a brighter building.
Our timber roof lanterns have great structural rigidity. We have designed them with components such as our patented aluminium roof cappings to withstand extremes of temperature and weather – completely watertight and leak free.
The large French doors leading out onto the patio area provide a seamless link between inside and out and the perfect space for alfresco dining and entertaining in the summer months.
