This light and welcoming orangery has replaced a tired old addition. This stunning architectural feature now provides all year round use.
This early 18th century listed property in Norfolk was extended in the 20th century with a single glazed flat roof extension to the main garden elevation, that had become very draughty.
The owners wished to remove this structure and replace it with a double glazed thermally efficient room providing them with a bright and airy room from which to enjoy their gardens at all times of the day.
The new building needed to be suitably proportioned and remain keeping with the existing elegant tall downstairs sash windows.
Blinds to both side and roof help create a cosy feel to the room in the evenings and during the winter months.
To provide stable functioning doors on tall structures, it is often necessary to incorporate a feature fanlight above the doors to achieve the required height.
These often include decorative architectural detail as shown here, enhancing the overall appearance of the building.
The new orangery has provided an addition of architectural merit and it could be looked back on as a key phase in the buildings organic and evolutionary development.
