There’s one sure way to complete satisfaction with a new conservatory or orangery – experience.
It takes time to discover and hone the skills that enable not just a sound and solid construction but also something that works in its surroundings and fulfils all your aspirations. It’s a team effort. Experts from all fields have played their part. Structural engineers and materials scientists, artists and designers, technicians, production specialists, quality managers and dedicated craftsmen have all contributed to an outstanding system.
When we begin to draw up the detailed plans, we’ll use all our experience to ensure the impeccable result you want. We’ll provide the advice you need or inspiration to solve a problem. We’ll take you through every option you need to think about, show you samples and allow you to try the operation of different window or door styles. When construction begins, you’ll be surprised how quick and easy it seems. That, like everything else, is the result of good design, craftsmanship and experience.
Our windows and doors are designed for a long, trouble-free life. We work hard to ensure that the manufacturing and installation are of an exceptional standard and we hope that you’ll never have call to use our guarantee. It’s there though, just in case. It’s fully insurance backed and gives you ten years of assurance against any defects in parts or labour.
With classic lines and a square or rectangular shape, an Edwardian conservatory makes an attractive addition to your home and the best use of your space. The basic design can be enhanced with detail, soft colours and glazing bars to suit a traditional or period property, or can be kept clean and simple using full-height glazing and bold colour for a surprisingly modern twist on Edwardian style.
Victorian homes and public buildings were filled with detail and the period was characterised by some exceptional feats of engineering. A Victorian-style conservatory reflects both that love of detail and the brilliance of design. The shape is faceted, the roof an exercise in perfect geometry and the whole a light, airy and graceful structure that sits perfectly with almost any home and garden.
A modification of the basic Edwardian conservatory, a Gable-End style replaces the hipped roof with a full ridge-height gable. For the same footprint and overall height, it offers a striking impression of extra space and height and has a light, open feel. The gable end can be impressive – imposing even – and is an ideal place for adding extras like feature glazing or sunburst designs.
Perhaps the very simplest of conservatory designs, a sun lounge is constructed using a single pitch roof
and a square or rectangular footprint. They are ideal for smaller properties or those with restricted eaves height, but can be very dramatic and stylish when spread across the full width of a larger property. Customise the design to suit your home, use colour, add detail and enjoy.
When you need something out of the ordinary, when your home demands something special, we’d love to help. We’ve helped to create some amazing structures over the years and delighted many homeowners with the results. Size or shape won’t faze us, but you can be sure that if you choose a bespoke Optima design you’ll be choosing something very special indeed.
A modern orangery is a beautiful home extension that looks and feels like an integral part of your home, but which still preserves the bright, open feel of a traditional conservatory. Fixed pillars, fitted with Optima doors and windows, a sharp, clean perimeter roof and a gorgeous atrium-style roof lantern combine to make an extension of your living space that’s both practical and glamorous.
