Wishlist achieved

An Ultraframe Livinroof recently transformed an old family conservatory.

The Turner family had an existing T-shaped conservatory with a polycarbonate roof, and they wanted a more usable room that would improve the feel of the adjoining rooms and increase their connection to the garden.

Top of their wishlist was a solid roof but with glazed areas to ensure a light and bright interior.

Livinroof is made up of solid panels and glazed panels, and these can each be positioned anywhere in the roof. On the interior, Livinroof has a plastered vaulted ceiling, creating an extension-type feel. It is also 100% pre-fabricated by Ultraframe prior to arriving on site.

The solid panels were grey in colour, which paired with the anthracite grey windows and doors. A cornice was added to the exterior to give an orangery-like feel, while on the interior, the insulated pelmet provided space for downlighters, as well as giving the new space a substantial feel – making it look and feel like a traditionally built extension, but with the fitting speed of a conservatory.

The client said: “The ability to reduce the amount of glazing in the roof was important so the room wasn’t too bright or hot and so Livinroof with its mix of solid and glazed panels was ideal. It’s improved the lighting into the existing lounge and dining room by removing the old thick frames and given us a large flexible space that connects our home with the garden.”
