Our client wanted to create an optimal living space from a dead patio area and use it as a beautiful segue to link two buildings together from a converted barn.
Specifically, our client wanted a seasoned oak orangery as a way of extending the existing kitchen. They also wanted to include a spiral staircase wine cellar within the orangery floor and access the lounge area within the other barn building.
The addition of a large oak roof lantern maximises natural light especially through to the kitchen area so it looks bright and airy. By adding in folding sliding doors on the side, our client is able to enjoy easy access to their landscaped garden which is a real plus.
The orangery has a special finish to reduce UV damage from the sun’s light, while the roof includes the latest, easy-to-clean solar control glass. This reduces unwanted summer heat by 83%, and means a cooler living environment even when it’s really hot!
