Townhouse orangery extension in Hampshire

Hampshire townhouse orangery extension for relaxing and dining

Case Study #3

Our structure needed to reflect the height and elegant proportions of this superb Georgian townhouse, but needed to be designed around an existing feature staircase window and an existing adjacent drawing room facade.

Case study before picture

This orangery extension project posed an interesting challenge for our designer, due to the size and position of existing windows and doors.

The result is an orangery created as two rooms with different eaves heights. An open and light-filled space is achieved whilst maintaining period characteristics of this Georgian townhouse.

The result is an orangery created as two rooms with different eaves heights. Internally, the structure opens directly into adjoining rooms in the house, linking it to the terrace, creating a light and spacious area that can be enjoyed from the outside as well as from within.

With a true Orangery, the construction will house an inset roof with a secret gutter around its perimeter, which is concealed externally with a molded entablature.

This, coupled with a shallow roof pitch gives the effect of a diminished roof.

This project illustrates two inset roofs intercepting at different heights.
