Conservatory transforms listed Georgian cottage

Satin (RAL 7033)
4m x 4m approx

Our client wanted to utilise and maximise the space available by creating a kitchen extension and a conservatory seemed the best way to do this.

As the property was a beautiful Georgian cottage and the new structure was going to open directly onto the kitchen, it required building regulations. Alitex worked closely with the planning officers in Sussex and planning permission was achieved by the use of low e glass and using argon filled units.

Alitex needed to design the removal of a chimney and the relocation of an oil tank. The construction elements of this project allowed the introduction of higher performance insulation to the supporting walls. The final design was complemented by a 100% glazed hipped roof to maximise light ingress. Therefore building could begin.

The kitchen was then knocked through to provide a larger kitchen which opens directly onto a wonderful dining/relaxing area.

The conservatory faces east so has the lovely morning sun but doesn't need blinds as it is out of the sun in the afternoon. The main part of the garden to this property is elevated so you also get to see the roof of the structure which in itself adds an interesting feature to the garden.
