design et al are delighted to announce that Hampton Conservatories have been shortlisted for Architectural Glasshouse over £150,000 Award within The International Design and Architecture Awards 2017.
Hampton conservatories present a high-end Accoya Timber Orangery with triple roof lanterns designed to make use of an underused terrace area. The interior of this space includes a kitchen and dining/living space area with bi-folding doors leading to the outdoor pool.
The clients requested a design of an extension to their luxury property that would make the best use of the space that was currently not being used. The clients wanted to link the home with the exterior swimming pool but also create a focal point within their home for friends and family visiting. They wanted a space that allows a lot of natural light to pass through the area, with the access between the new space and the pool and outside being grand enough to accommodate parties and larger gatherings. It is a subtle extension to the original property so blends perfectly with the gardens and pool area.
The final extension had to be sympathetic to the original red brick property but also create the sense of luxury and give the interior of the property a stylish and modern feel inside. The kitchen of the property had to be extended into the orangery to link the dining area and lounging area to one big large bright space. The designer’s favourite aspects of the Luxury Hardwood orangery are said to be the bi-folding doors and triple roof lanterns. The design works well as it takes nothing away from the original features of the property but ensuring it makes the best use of the space available.
