Accoya® wood was selected by expert bespoke joinery company, Westbury Garden Rooms for a recent orangery renovation project on an elegant residential home in London.


The project was completed in six weeks and included the installation of a four leaf folding door set, four traditional weighted box sash windows, facia mouldings and a centrally located lantern roof allowing for streams of natural light to enter the space, to create a stylish yet refined aesthetic. Crafted from Accoya®, the exposed wood was finished and painted using Westbury Silver Birch.


Westbury Garden Rooms selected Accoya® as the core material within the project, due to its moisture resistance and Class 1 durability. With a 50-year guarantee above ground, Accoya® gives home-owners peace of mind that they will have a long-lasting, high performance wood that requires minimum maintenance.


Rivalling traditional hardwood timbers including oak, Accoya®’s outstanding stability also means minimal swelling and shrinkage allowing the windows to open effortlessly all year round. Accoya® wood meets the sustainability requirements of many homeowners with outstanding environmental credentials, including gold level Cradle-to-Cradle certification credentials. Furthermore, Accoya® window frames are in fact CO2 negative over their full lifecycle.


The extension itself provides generous dining, seating and transition zones within an open-plan space which has been set within a broad perimeter ceiling, whilst the orangery’s sense of height and volume is enhanced by the centrally placed lantern. Security shutters were incorporated into the main elevation – discreetly sitting within its fascia enabling optional and additional privacy to the home-owners.


The beautifully relaxed feeling is brought together with the home-owner’s addition of colour and texture in their stylish soft furnishings and window dressing.
