Experts at working with Listed Buildings, this particular solid wood orangery was designed by Karen Bell, one of our most experienced sales designers, who is now David Salisbury Sales & Marketing Director.
The brief was a simple one: to add an extension to the back of this typical stone property in Bath in order to provide views and access to the customer’s well maintained, picturesque garden.
With an existing water feature in the garden providing a focal point for those views, Karen designed a simple but stunningly effective, traditional orangery.
The classic timber design was in-keeping with the host building whilst the white colour matched the existing timber sash windows.
Four sets of French doors were specified around the whole perimeter of the orangery, allowing for flexible access to the garden.
Commenting on the design, Karen noted: “the orangery formed part of a reconfiguration of the house, moving the kitchen to form a new light and airy open plan, family living space. It was important to respect the Georgian architecture of this Grade II Listed Building. The orangery is elegant and sympathetic in design without being overly ornate, so as not to detract from the period features of the property.”
With the resulting additional space, the customer was able to re-locate their favourite sofas to create the wonderfully relaxed living area they desired – ideal for all year round use.
This is another great example of the types of award-winning orangeries which David Salisbury designs and delivers every week all around the country. If you’re thinking of adding a building extension to your home, why not take the first step and request our brochure?
