Blending old and new
An orangery has been added to a traditional farmhouse to create a blend of old and new using products from Synseal Group.
The unusual conservatory, which features rows of heritage vertical sliding windows from Synseal’s Evolve range, was designed using an aluminium portal structure. The homeowner opted for a cream foil for the exterior of the products which includes Evolve VS windows, a WarmCore bifold door plus a Benchmark GRP door – a colour consistency Synseal is able to match across its products whether from its PVCU, aluminium or composite entrance door ranges.
The orangery has been finished with a lantern roof and decorative fascia from Synseal’s Global Summer range, maximising thermal efficiency with Celsius Elite performance glass, which has U-values of 0.9W/m²K.
Synseal sales director Kevin Warner said: “The flexibility we can offer our customers across our conservatory and orangery ranges really stands out when homeowners are looking for something a bit different or unusual.
“Our SkySpace portal frame system was originally designed with large, commercial structures in mind but it can be adapted easily to create versatile designs and provide additional structural integrity, as with this design which features sash windows.
“Our conservatory team are experts in design and architectural planning, meaning we can save our customers time and costs by providing this service alongside our products as an integrated package. We don’t like to tell customers it can’t be done – if there is a design you want to achieve, we’ll consider all the options available from our Global, K2 and portal frame systems to help you meet the project’s aspirations.”
