Bespoke open plan orangery extension on a luxury country home

This beautiful home in Arundel has been further enhanced by Room Outside as part of a large project.  The addition of a luxury open plan orangery extension with a full lantern roof expanding the overall living area, offering the client a new spacious dining room. The customer also wanted to replace the old patio doors in the lounge with bi-fold doors to fully open the room up to the outdoors and make the most of the views of their large country garden. Replacing the existing balcony balustrade over the lounge with our premium frameless glass balustrade has allowed uninterrupted views over the gardens from the 2nd floor of the home. The final result is spectacular and creates a really wonderful entertaining and living space when combined together.

Large timber framed, open plan orangery extension

The large t-shaped modern timber-framed orangery has been designed to the customer’s specification and added to the side of the house to add a spacious dining and entertaining area off the side of the lounge. The cream painted timber frames have been chosen to match the style of the country property perfectly. The dwarf walls have also been constructed from reclaimed red brick to blend with the aesthetic of the property making the orangery appear to be part of the original building.

The wooden frames have a more ornate style echoing the elegance of a traditional orangery but as part of a more modern design, with carved vertical detailing in the upright frames and horizontal carved lines in the pelmets that embellish the top of the orangery. Double French doors open out onto a side patio leading to the hot tub and connecting round to the main patio which leads off onto the lush green lawn.

Inside the orangery, there is a large light and airy space that is opened to the lounge to create a large open-plan entertaining space. The full-length lantern roof makes for a spectacular focal point that lets in lots of natural light and the apex of the glass roof adds height and grandeur to the room.  Spotlights have been added all the way around the pelmets to create mood lighting for the evenings There are windowsills built-in along the side of the room which creates space for décor to bring the customer’s own style to the room. The orangery can accommodate a large dining table with no problem and making the ideal space for dining with friends.

This stunning balcony area is perfect for enjoying your first cup of coffee of the day alongside breakfast whilst taking in the bird song and gorgeous views.  Our customer replaced the old balustrade with the contemporary structural glass design which is completely frameless.  The lack of frame allows for a full-width panoramic view of the garden and surrounding countryside without obstruction. The other benefit is that the house’s fabric can be seen through the glass, so it doesn’t take away or change the overall aesthetic of the property.

Opening up the external wall from the original double patio doors to add in wide bi-fold doors has added more light to the lounge and connected the house with the patio and garden beyond. In the summer months opening the doors wide keep the house cool and helps to blend the three rooms to make one large open plan indoor-outdoor entertaining space.
