This downtown Shrewsbury, MA project was a collaborative effort between our talented design team and the discerning eye of the homeowner. Our goal was to carefully plan and construct an orangery-style addition in a very difficult location without significantly altering the architectural flow of the existing colonial home.
The traditional style of an English orangery is characterized by large windows built into the construction as well as a hip style skylight centered within the space (adding a masterful touch of class). In keeping with this theme, we were able to incorporate Anderson architectural French doors and a spectacular skylight so as to allow an optimum amount of light into the structure.
Engineered and constructed using solid dimensional lumber and insulated in compliance with (and exceeding) international residential building code requirements, this bespoke orangery blends the beauty of old world design with the substantial benefits of contemporary construction practices.
Bringing together the very best characteristics of a Sunspace Design project, the orangery featured here provides the warmth of a traditional English AGA stove, the rustic feel of a bluestone floor, and the elegance of custom exterior and interior decorative finishes. We invite you to add a modern English orangery to your own home so that you can enjoy a lovely dining space with your family, or simply an extra area to sit back and relax within.
