Another Orangery Project Successfully Completed
We successfully converted the rear of this 6 bedroom house in West Sussex.
The project was to provide an appropriate large kitchen / dining space commensurate with the size of the house that also gained visual and practical access to the lovely gardens.
Internally - The house had a small dining extension accessed by a narrow internal archway from the kitchen. The dining extension was an eyesore on the property and had subsidence affecting its stability
By clever designing inside we created a much larger dining and living area easily seating 10 to 12 people and with open plan by a peninsular feature to the kitchen. The kitchen only lost 2 wall cupboards but gained a great feeling of space and engagement with the dining area eradicating the ‘loneliness’ of a separate kitchen and offering a wonderful view of the garden
Views of the garden not only to appreciate the flora and forna but the children playing is a must these days so the provision of large patio doors and bifolding doors gives maximum visibility and also when open an integrated space with the patio outside for those parties and bar-BBQs.
The central glazed lantern gives an added dimension of light and roof space which with 2 automatic roof windows there is plenty of ventilation when required whilst also continuing the feeling of an extension by not being too big. A glazed lantern also allows interesting views of what is happening in the sky above.
Externally - Outside the orangery extension needed not to look like a bolt on extension so attention to detail of the provision of 2 roof gables softens the impact and ties it in with the existing house features.
The colour of the doors and lantern add a contemporary look without clashing with the original house – a decision is being made about the existing white French doors after the winter!
The old unsteady decking has been replaced with a wrap around lovely Indian sandstone patio which allows a safe play area for the children and plenty of options to sit in or out of the sun as required.
All the doors and lantern have the latest and most effective double glazing including self cleaning glass in the roof!
Admins - We enabled all the planning and building regulation requirements, the thermal calculations and the structural engineering requirements etc.
It was a pleasure working with such an engaged and discerning customer who appreciated the work and professionalism applied by ourselves.
Customer comment "We are delighted with our new extension that came in within budget. It completely changes the downstairs arrangement improving the living area both inside and out. The design suggestions were much appreciated. Naturally we would highly recommend Orangery Soutions"
