Orangery by the River

This painted orangery in Buckinghamshire is undoubtedly up there as one of our stand-out private residential projects of the year.

The company prides itself on receiving recommendations, which are obviously a vital part of any businesses future success.  This project was the result of a recommendation from a well-known local figure from the sports world and was, in fact, the fourth locally referred order in the area in the recent past.

Designed by one of David Salisbury’s most experienced designers, Eddie Spillane, this prestigious project presented a number of unique challenges.

With the host building being the vicarage in the grounds of an abbey, clearly getting the design right was a hugely important first step.

As Eddie commented: “you can imagine the pride I felt in working on a design of this significance, for what is an important period property.  The vicarage is a unique house and with the abbey located nearby, the design had to be perfectly in-keeping and sympathetic with its surroundings.”

The traditional orangery design well complements the client’s period brick property, allowing them to feel closer to their beautiful garden and allowing views of the river and the abbey. 

The large lantern roof, along with the almost full height windows and doors, allows large amounts of natural light in, providing a wonderful ambience to the interior.  As the interior images show, the space allows plenty of space for dining, with the occasional chairs well situated to take in the views.

Eddie has widespread experience of designing eye-catching orangeries, with some of his stand-out projects including a triple domed orangery in Kent and an orangery and balcony combination in Surrey. 

He noted: “whilst every project is satisfying in its own way, I took particular satisfaction that the client was extremely happy with the end result and these photos help underline that.  So much so, that they feature in David Salisbury’s latest advertising campaign as a leading example of our design capabilities.”
