Period Home Conservatory with Metal Windows

Case Study #15

A refined period home rich in character and built with steel windows, benefits from the addition of a period conservatory with real architectural bronze casements.

This stunning house built around the beginning of the 20th century is brimming with architectural features including diaper bond brickwork and Elizabethan style chimney stacks. Stone mullions throughout the house were fitted with steel windows, galvenised and painted.

The owners wanted to add their own architectural masterpiece that would mark their time at the house. The new addition was to reflect the attention to detail carried out in the original construction.

Dimensions : 5.8m x 6.3m
Colour : Flagstone (Exterior), Putty (Interior)

The lead covered roof is crowned with a decorative gallery cresting and spire finials which surrounds a rising canopy ventilation system. The relief with stop chamfer in the gable reflects the diaper bond in the brickwork. The conservatory mullion framework sits between feature columns and eaves are decorated with a deep dentil mould.

Architectural bronze casements sit within the mullion framework of the conservatory.

These are fitted with double glazed leaded lights with encapsulated antique glass to the clerestory above the doors.

A framed lattice feature sits at the apex of the plastered ceiling, which conceals the mechanics of the rising ventilating canopy, and from which is suspended the central light fitting. This helps provide excellent ventilation to the room.
