The Orangery


The orangery

One of our first projects together was a house in south Dublin and after completion the clients asked us to design a garden room, built separately from the house to one side of the rear garden. It is intended to be a multi-purpose room to be used as guest accommodation, study or a summer-house. The appearance is of a Victorian orangery with large expanses of south-facing glass in a masonry structure with slated roof. Large openings face south across the large garden, steel windows maximise the amount of light and a small bathroom is tucked into the back corner. A large piece of built-in furniture contains a galley kitchen, TV cabinet and library behind the high-level glass doors.
