Two structures create an eye catching feature on this magnificent Georgian home in Derbyshire.
The owners of this stuccoed stone Grade II listed, 18th Century property wished to reconstruct a conservatory where an Edwardian structure had originally stood.
In addition, there was an adjacent solid roof lean-to garden room which was in a state of disrepair and required replacing with a solid roof construction.
A clever combination of lead and glass were used in the design of both structures to tie the two buildings together,
The main conservatory incorporated a combination of lead roof topped with glazed cupola creating a valuable combination of glass and solidity for shading in the roof area.
The clever use of reeded, crescent-shaped columns with simple capitals were inspired by existing details that feature on the principle elevation of the property, whilst a clerestory featuring curved joinery adds unique style and stature.
A glazed structure will offer something quite unique in the evenings as well as day time - particularly at special times of the year such as Christmas, as seen here.
