This bespoke painted orangery is the latest example of David Salisbury’s unrivalled expertise in successfully working with and successfully extending 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.
SYMPATHETIC DESIGN KEY TO THIS ORANGERY
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.
Grants Blinds designed fully automated and motorised lined French Pinoleum blinds, which were installed throughout the orangery, for maximum shading.
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.
