01 Case Study - Conservatory
Every Oakfields conservatory will look and feel at home in its natural surroundings
The conservatory was designed to compliment a Grade II listed Georgian vicarage in a quaint village in Hertfordshire. Fitting perfectly within its picturesque landscape, this classic structure highlights the range which our designers can deliver on any brief.
This elegant gabled structure is a dining room extension that allows stunning views of the grounds and church under which it nestles. Slender glazing bars were deliberately chosen for the way they complement the fine glazing bars of the adjoining Georgian home and yet we were still able to provide double-glazing, essential in a modern glazed room. The new conservatory follows the line of an original conservatory built around 1900, and we planned the height of the ridge to match that of the original.
Detail has been impeccably reproduced and it’s worth noting the dentil moulding on both the conservatory and the main house. Careful and sympathetic design helped our architectural team win planning consent and the end result is a delightful enhancement that adds light and space to the house.
To meet your specification
The key to complete your project successfully, be it building a bespoke luxury conservatory from its very foundations, installing replacement windows or installing slim frame sliding doors, is ensuring its timelessness and versatility from the very early stages of the design process.
An initial consultation will allow us to gauge a greater understanding of your requirements. Once we’ve established what you are looking to achieve, we will usually carry out an assessment of your property to ensure any limitations are dealt with in the early planning stages.
Our expert designers will prepare a detailed design, including the latest in photorealistic imagery and present to you at home or at one of our showrooms. We are sure you will be 'wowed' by what is achievable and the level of work that we put in to realise your dream. We do this for one simple reason: to show you exactly what your investment will bring to your home.
It doesn't end there, if you require planning our in-house consultant will take the plans through the application, gaining listed buildings or conservation consent and taking the pain out of the process.
Then, drawing upon your own ideas and inspiration, our team of apprentice-trained craftsmen will bring the design to life, using only the finest timber, glazing and embellishments to produce a truly exceptional finish. No standard or modular components are used in the construction of our custom conservatories and Wintergardens, ensuring that each creation remains unquestionably one-of-a-kind.
We provide a truly bespoke service
What defines a ‘luxury’ conservatory? Is it the impeccable attention to detail demonstrated by our staff at each stage of the design process that deems a conservatory to be more opulent? Or is it the unrivalled quality of the materials used to create the structure that really gives it that all-important je ne sais quoi?
We believe it’s a combination of these factors that bring our clients that much-coveted ‘luxury’ experience and we work hard to ensure that our level of service also embodies these values.
When you choose Glass House Architecture, you’ll benefit from a personal approach to custom conservatory design that will allow you to have as much or as little input in your project as you like. You will be given the opportunity to revise the structure’s design at every stage of the creative process and will experience first-hand the passion and commitment of our designers and craftsmen as they work closely with you to turn your vision into startling reality.
