Victorian Conservatory for a rectory in Suffolk

Case Study #16

Owners of this fine example of Victorian architecture, simply wanted to create a light-filled family room in which the whole family would want to be.

In many instances, particularly when working on properties that are generous in size and proportion, the simple requirement is to add a structure which will create a totally unique atmosphere, where the whole family can congregate and spend quality time together.

This interesting glazed addition, built off the kitchen, provides a great light-filled environment where everyone wants to ‘hang out’ and where almost all meals are taken, whilst enjoying views of the garden.

Dimensions : 8m x 5.5m
Colour : Mud Pie (Exterior), Mud Pie (Interior)

Intricate joinery with corbel detail and stop chamfer bargeboard on the breakfront gable. Deep clerestory panels with gothic double arched heads are created with delicate 26mm joinery, true divided lights and individual double glazed units. Steep roof pitch mirrors that on the house.

The sheer height of this structure created by the deep clerestory with gothic arches and large vertically glazed panel in the gable, emphasises the space and enhances the lofty, airy feel.

Facing east and in the shade of a large tree, blinds to the roof and side still help with creating a cosy room.

A pair of internal doors and clerestory panels are set within a large frame to replace the existing old and delapidated set leading from the kitchen into the conservatory.

The frame is embellished with decorative columns, corbels and detailed entabliture to the head.
