Chelmsford Project | Westbury Garden Rooms


Located on a quiet road this beautiful property has undergone an extension in the form of a Westbury orangery on the quest to creating this family’s forever home. The clients have two very young children and a dog, so a practical, well zoned space was much needed. Humphrey Munson undertook the kitchen design whilst Westbury Garden Rooms carried out planning permission for the project and created a new space to extend the kitchen/ dining and sitting area which could then lead out onto the garden effortlessly.

This family orientated project has been transformed from a cramped almost unusable room into an open plan haven the family can grow in. The garden too has been designed for easy living both indoors and outdoors, the orangery doors can now be left open during the warmer months and the clients can keep an eye on young ones playing in the garden with a far less restricted view.

‘This house previously had a long narrow kitchen with a small dining table at one end and utility at the other. Westbury removed two adjacent walls to create a large open plan living room incorporating a previously separate lounge. This newly created open space was then further enhanced with a generous glazed orangery which floods light back in to the once dark areas and opened them up to the garden views. In addition to the orangery, we also added a W/C and boot room to the side of the property. We removed the old utility roof and replaced with a new flat roof and parapet mouldings to match the orangery. Finished in Portland stone inside and out and the roof lantern benefits from solar reflective glazing.’ – Westbury Garden Rooms

A few notes by Westbury about this particular orangery:

  • French doors with top hung casement windows.
  • House is on a quiet road but close to town.
  • 2 large electrically operated roof vents to the lantern – important to ensure good ventilation when incorporating a kitchen design with an orangery.
