Beautiful wood finishing was at the core of this modern and stylish orangery extension
At the heart of this stunning orangery renovation project, on an elegant residential home in London, is carefully crafted wood. The project was completed in six weeks and included the installation of a four leaf folding door set, four traditional weighted box sash windows, fascia mouldings, and a centrally located lantern roof allowing for streams of natural light to enter the space, to create a stylish yet refined aesthetic.
Bespoke joinery company Westbury Garden Rooms selected Accoya wood for their material of choice, and the exposed wood was finished and painted using Marston & Langinger Fava. Accoya wood was chosen as the core material within the project due to its moisture resistance and Class 1 durability; with a 50-year guarantee above ground, Accoya gives homeowners peace of mind that they will have a long-lasting, high performance wood that requires minimum maintenance.
The extension itself provides generous dining, seating and transition zones within an open-plan space, which has been set within a broad perimeter ceiling, whilst the centrally placed lantern enhances the orangery’s sense of height and volume. Security shutters were incorporated into the main elevation, discreetly sitting within its fascia enabling optional and additional privacy to the homeowners.
The beautifully relaxed feeling is brought together with the homeowner’s addition of colour and texture in their stylish soft furnishings and window dressing. This elegant and modern extension is a testament to the beauty and versatility of carefully crafted wood.
