This Grade II listed farmhouse was suffering from a failing conservatory which was letting in water when it rained, swelteringly hot in the summer and too cold to use in the winter.  We were therefore approached by our clients to create a sensitive replacement orangery extension.


During the design process, we explored highly contemporary schemes as well as a traditional approach and, through working with the client, settled on the traditional style to complement the farmhouse and meet our clients requirements.  The proposal offered a more solid structure to enable its use throughout the year but maintained a lightweight nature to maximise the connectivity to the patio and gardens beyond.


The designs also made subtle tweaks to the existing farmhouse to improve the connectivity and flow between the existing rooms and the replacement extension, creating the feeling of open plan living without having a detrimental impact on the historic fabric of the property.  


The traditional roof lantern makes a real impact to the room, with an abundance of natural light filling the space.  Complimented by the traditional joinery of the doors and windows which have been designed to reference the original windows within the farmhouse.  


The level of craftsmanship undertaken by the site team has really brought the design intent to fruition and we couldn’t be more pleased with the final outcome.
