Our Client's Brief

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.
