Modern Glazed Garden Room


Project Details

£50,000 to £99,999

Listed Building - Grade II


Hetreed Ross Architects Ltd

Bath Brewery , Toll Bridge Road , Batheaston , BATH , Somerset , BA1 7DE

Our clients’ brief was to remove a redundant lean-to on the side of their listed house and replace it with a larger, contemporary garden room providing a central, level route from the house into their beautiful garden. We opted for a dark framed, slim line glazing system to maximise the connection between the interior and exterior, with sliding doors. The large glazed areas enabled the house and the brick and flint garden wall to appear to wrap around the garden room. Although the room faces south east the flat roof overhangs to shade the space from excessive solar gain.
