Opening up the ground floor

Olive Green (RAL 7023)

Adding a conservatory to a shaded, north facing side of a period home in Hampshire.

Our client wanted to bring light into their home and an Alitex conservatory proved to be just what was needed. Our clients had always struggled with light on that particular side of the house (which sits in the lee of a hill) and realised that a conservatory built on the site of the old patio would not only provide extra light, but room for a growing family who wanted to move freely between inside and out.

By re-considering the layout downstairs, the family have been able to gain considerable advantage, not just from the extra conservatory space, but also in the way the existing space is used, turning “corridors” into rooms. The office/spare room moved to an adjacent building which was renovated to include stack doors, reflecting the style of the conservatory.

Our client had childhood memories of her father scraping and painting his own wooden conservatory and realised that her family would not want to do the same. This led them to decide on aluminium from Alitex which they concluded would be easier to maintain and would suit the look of their home.

The conservatory is now an essential part of their house and its unlikely positioning on the north side of the property has actually worked well for them, brightening up every day, regardless of the weather. The conservatory has generous bi-fold (or stack) doors which lead onto the garden and has proved to be the answer to the typical British weather.

Our client says “I think a conservatory is potentially quite a lifestyle changing space – it certainly has been for us.”
