So what is a Gable conservatory? And is this grand Georgian style right for your home?
What is a Gable conservatory?
Gable conservatories get their name from the roof, which is positioned upright like the end of a traditional home. The style dates back to the Georgian architectural period of which modern Gable conservatories are a contemporary version.
Also known as Gable-end conservatories as a result of the distinct shape of the roof, the style is characterised by simple detailing, large panes of glass and a somewhat imposing front elevation that extends all the way to the peak of the roof to form an impressive sun-like apex often referred to as a sun-burst effect. Often compared in style to Edwardian-era architecture, Gable conservatories combine a sloping, high-ridged roof with your choice of a square or rectangular base which maximises space, height and light for a lofty, naturally light space ideal for both summer barbecues, afternoon tea, remote working, relaxation and even a winter dinner party.
Maximising height, light and space
Much like Victorian and Edwardian styles, Gable conservatories capture the period heritage of historic Britain. It’s a style reminiscent of the opulent orangeries of bygone centuries, where the nobility would gather for tea parties and socialising. However, the style also blends well with more modern homes, including new builds. As a result, Gable conservatories are a great option if you are looking for a more traditional style which blends well with the modern architecture of your property.
The versatility of the Gable style has made them an enduring option on the market well into the 21st century. With your choice of a square or rectangular design and a symmetrical floor plan, Gable conservatories are ideal for maximising space within your home – without resorting to a costly extension. Homeowners can position their furnishings including couches, tables and plants with ease utilising the symmetrical design, without having to worry about the odd gaps and awkward spaces typical of other period conservatories. Gable conservatories are also manufactured with a vertical roof, not sloping, which can increase the sense of space and give the air of a higher ceiling.
Modern Gable conservatories also benefit from premium energy efficiency ratings and heightened security. At Majestic Designs, we engineer our range of Gable conservatories with double glazed glass, internal beading, innovative thermal break seals and other modern conveniences that ensure your home is secure and thermally efficient. This means our clients don’t have to compromise on energy efficiency and security when preserving the historical charm of a period home, nor do they have to forgo adding traditional aesthetics when renovating a new build or more modern home.
