The privilege of living in a listed building is something only a few can enjoy. The uniqueness, charm and originality are just a few qualities that such a home can offer.
Listed buildings help us acknowledge and understand our shared history. They mark and celebrate a building's special architectural and historic interest, and also bring it under the consideration of the planning system so that some thought will be taken about its future. The older a building is, the more likely it is to be listed. All buildings built before 1700 which have survived in anything like their original condition are generally listed, as are most of those built between 1700 and 1840. Buildings from the period after 1945 would have been very carefully selected for listing. A building normally has to be over 30 years old to be eligible for listing.
But what happens when you wish to extend these features into an Orangery, Conservatory or Glass Extension which suits both your requirements and the character of your home but still meets the stringent planning regulations which all listed buildings must adhere to? You may find our recent Blog on Planning Permission for listed Buildings useful?
Our new specialist Structural Glass Extension is proving popular with planners on listed buildings too, as it can often enhance the historic features of the building.
Since 1973 Room Outside has led the field in providing individually tailored Orangeries, Conservatories and Glass Extensions to properties that are either listed or in a conservation areas throughout the UK. We completely understand the importance of tradition and all of our glass buildings are designed and built to your own personal specification alongside a sensitivity towards the structure and features of the existing building.
We are proud of the excellent working relationship we have built over the years with Local Authorities and Planning Offices in the South East, who have greatly assisted us in obtaining the best solution in the many delicate areas of planning approval for listed buildings or properties within a conservation area.
