Conservatory / orangery drawing / design services

Each conservatory / orangery design project is unique – reflecting the customer’s personal wishes in the design.  
Often, from an architect's drawing ... or even your own sketches, one cannot visualise how the conservatory/orangery or bespoke solution will blend into the existing structure and landscaping.

We offer a personalised service producing hand drawn sketches to bring the project to life and shows how it will blend in with your existing property and surroundings. 

By working on the drawing with the client we can help you design the right solution for your propoerty and landscaping.

Where We Operate
In parts of West Sussex, East Hants area we usually try to conduct on-site visits.

For other areas we use photos, google earth and phone discussions.
Then using our over 30 years experience in this field we can create a personalised perspective sketch showing how the project will look and how it will blend into the 'look & feel' of the property and the surrounding landscaping.  From this any further adjustments can be planned.

The service costs about £500 to £800 ... money well spent.  This money can be recovered if you then go on to choose one of our trusted
 local specialist builders to complete the job.  We are totally independent of any supplier and can thus guide you to the best trusted local supplier to meet your particular requirements.  The service often includes a site survey, discussions, initial designs and specification for a builder.
If you wish to use one of our associate companies to quote for the building of the project we can help with product research with showroom and installation visits.

You can waste hundreds of pounds by not getting your project right first time.  During the discusions that lead up to producing the hand drawn sketch many isues could be covered including :-

Typical examples of our conservatory / orangery design service
Bracklesham Bay (see images) - A customer needed to unpick the previous additions to the front of this desirable property which backs onto the beach. The property is used for holiday lets and needs plenty of room for up to 9 to10 people coming and going with their luggage and possibly wheelchairs.  The brief was to release the front door to give an appropriately stylish entrance and to modernise the front room which had been too cold in the winter and was very dated.

Using our design service involving close and detailed consultation with the customer we created an easy to relate to hand drawn drawing which the customer was releived to see accurately met the customers requirements and expectations.

- Henfield Project (see images).  The old white conservatory was too small and not habitable all year round (too hot and too cold as usual!)
