Sympathetic Design the Key to this Orangery

This bespoke painted orangery is the latest example of David Salisbury’s unrivalled expertise in successfully working with Listed Buildings.

In this case, this Tudor-style property is Grade 2 Listed and therefore required a sensitive design, in-keeping with the historic building, which was originally built in the 16th Century.

Rudy Staal, one of David Salisbury’s most experienced sales designers was on hand to provide his usual combination of design flair and practical knowledge.

The orangery was designed for the rear of the property to create a link with the outside and to open up wider panoramic views of the scenic gardens and surrounding countryside.

It also served to counter-balance an existing lean-to painted conservatory which was positioned in the centre of the rear elevation. The orangery was painted in ‘Barley White’ from David Salisbury’s unique colour palette, which was chosen to match the conservatory. 

Traditional French doors on each of the new orangery provide convenient access to the garden, whilst the generously proportioned glazing and overhead help bring in plentiful amounts of natural light – a key requirement for older properties, where light levels can be an issue.

Having successfully achieved the necessary Listed Building consents, alongside the commencement of our survey process, our customer enquired about blinds for their new orangery. 

We recommended our partners at Grants Blinds, who we have worked with for many years and are experts at designing bespoke shading solutions for orangeries and garden rooms.

For maximum shading, Grants designed fully automated and motorised lined French Pinoleum blinds, which were installed throughout the orangery.

The completed orangery was project managed by Mark Osborne, from our dedicated team of project managers, with comprehensive head office support from Customer Account Manager Chloe Power (who we wish well during her current maternity leave).

The new addition to this 16th Century period home ticks all of the design boxes and underlines, once again, that if you’re considering extending a Listed Building, you should start by talking to David Salisbury – our experience in this area is simply unequalled.
