A celebration of conservatories

Ultraframe has announced the winners of its inaugural Conservatory Design Awards, which were introduced to celebrate the talents of its retail installers in all aspects of conservatory and extension design and build.

Winners were selected from entries sent in by retail installers across the UK, as well as from the entries received during 2019 for Ultraframe’s Installation of the Month competition. Andrew Thomson, Ultraframe’s design & development director selected the four winners, who are:

Conservatory Designer of the Year: Conservatory Village
Orangery Designer of the Year: Lifestyle Windows & Conservatories
Conservatory Transformation Designer of the Year: Forest Edge Home Improvements
Extension Designer of the Year: SEH BAC
Highly Commended were Vale Conservatory Company for Orangery Designer of the Year and Adenhart for Extension Designer of the Year.

Andrew Thomson said: “It was fantastic to see so many outstanding examples of our conservatory and extension systems being used in real life situations. The winning installations all demonstrated a high level of both design and build skills from the teams behind the installations and we’d like to congratulate each and every one of them.”

The systems used in the winning installations covered much of the Ultraframe range, with Classic, Ultrasky, Livinroof, Ultraroof and the Ultrasky Lantern all featuring.

Commenting on the individual winning installations, Andrew said: “Conservatory Village – this is a stunning large-scale conservatory which has used full-length glazing and a two-tier flat cornice to create a contemporary look. An outstanding example of how well-designed glazed conservatories with carefully chosen enhancements create beautiful, modern living spaces.”

Lifestyle Windows and Conservatories – “The strong, modern look of this orangery contrasts perfectly against the heritage home. A great example of how the Ultrasky Roof combines with super-insulated columns, an insulated pelmet and a flat cornice combine to create an orangery for today’s consumer.”

Forest Edge Home Improvements – “Forest Edge have taken the existing footprint and really maximised the space – filling the new room with light thanks to the Livinroof panels and clever use of full height glazing. A fantastic transformation.”

SEH BAC – “The team at SEH BAC have used their expertise to transform an outdated conservatory into a light, bright, open plan extension that has become the hub of the home.”
