Replacing an old lean-to conservatory

Case Study #14

The popular and timeless design of the lean-to structure can provide the ideal solution for many properties when simplicity is key.

Owners of this listed property in Somerset needed to replace their single glazed dilapidated existing structure which had seen better days.

The local authority were consulted and the brief was that the general footprint and lean-to design were not deviated from too significantly.

Challenged to create a beautiful addition within such restrictions, Vale designed and built the resulting structure which certainly creates an outstanding feature on the plainest aspect of this charming property.

Dimensions : 4m x 7.1m
Colour : Catkin (Exterior), Catkin (Interior)

The centralised doors allow for grouping of furniture at both sides of the room. A large impressive pendant light hangs from the gable ridge.

Whilst simple in format, the internal and external joinery detail is not compromised, and here the decorative bargeboard is enjoyed as much from the inside as it is outside.

Slender pilasters sit to the exterior of the conservatory whilst recessed panels feature internally.

Hand carved decorative bargeboard and spire finial feature on the gable.
