The new sunroom replaced this old flat roof conservatory.

One of our personal favourite types on design is with bi-folding doors to two adjoining walls which when both opened can give a fantastic indoor/outdoor […]
The external appearance along with ergonomics was a big consideration for this project. The client wanted to reinforce the contemporary side of the building by using a smooth white render.

Before the transformation! A great example of how a clear […]
