Today, glass extensions fulfil a wide variety of uses from sitting rooms, kitchen extensions and dining areas. The addition of a bespoke conservatory is an exciting opportunity to be creative with design and break with the tradition of other conventional rooms in the home, offering a totally unique atmosphere with unlimited uses.
It is of primary importance that the design is sympathetic to the existing property in terms of architectural detailing and for many, creating a stunning feature on a plain or featureless wall can make an enormous difference.
Conservatories can be built to suit any period of building and most can create a beautiful addition if interpreted with appropriate design detail and proportions.
The smallest of spaces can create a unique addition to any home and can be a treasured and valuable room, providing much needed additional space. Conservatories are frequently created in the most unlikely of places and a useful room can be built in a previously unused part of a courtyard or garden. Filling an awkward space or dark recess with an attractive functional room, no matter how small, is a great investment particularly when space is limited.
In towns and cities where many houses and flats have living space and gardens are small, every square metre is valuable. Adding a conservatory will gain precious extra living accommodation, making the most of even the smallest area without blocking light into existing rooms. Boundary walls can be utilised within such schemes.
A conservatory can provide a functional and attractive solution to linking two buildings. We have built many interesting rooms for clients who require access between the home and an outbuilding or garage, and are used to overcoming difficulties with floor levels and head heights when buildings are not on the same level.
For some, the balance of a solid insulated lead covered roof and glazed sides will better meet your requirements.
The feeling of light and space is still achieved in these rooms. Even the combination of a part-glazed and part-leaded roof can create the desired effect. Occasionally, we incorporate the use of a traditional roofing slate or tile into our structures to complement the house.
The traditional look of the glasshouse has an emphasis on simplicity and strong clean vertical lines.
Once built single glazed, the same design principle is applied when building new or replacement structures with all the attributes of a fully insulated double glazed room. This style of glazed addition will suit many types of property from barn conversions to contemporary builds.
