Gable End Conservatory With Dwarf Wall

Location: New Milton, Hampshire

Project Background

Our clients, New Milton, Hampshire, homeowners, were keen on enhancing their living space with a gable end conservatory that would not only flood their home with natural light but also provide optimal comfort throughout the seasons. Their primary goal was to seamlessly integrate the conservatory into their existing bungalow, ensuring that it would be a space to enjoy year-round while maintaining energy efficiency.

Our Solution

To meet the clients’ aspirations, our expert team developed a comprehensive plan and executed the project with precision.

Design and Integration

Our first step involved cutting into the existing bungalow roof and constructing a gable dormer to adapt and receive the conservatory gable ridge seamlessly. This meticulous process ensured a cohesive integration that complemented the existing architecture. The classic dwarf wall provided a traditional touch, anchoring the conservatory in elegance.

Natural Light and Comfort

The design prioritised ample natural light with the inclusion of a gable end, strategically positioned to allow sunlight to flood the conservatory. The PVC French doors not only added a touch of classic charm but also provided easy access to the garden, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor connection. The gable end design also facilitated excellent ventilation, contributing to a comfortable living environment.

Energy Efficiency and Temperature Regulation

To address energy efficiency, the conservatory was equipped with glazing that blocked up to 86% of the sun’s heat. This feature ensured that the space remained cool in summer while retaining warmth during winter, creating a pleasant environment for the clients year-round.

Project Execution and Completion of the Gable End Conservatory

Our skilled craftsmen executed the project meticulously, paying attention to every detail in the design plan. The gable end conservatory was seamlessly integrated into the existing bungalow, and the installation process was completed efficiently.
