Installer of the Month winners
9th October 2018
Installations from Vision Conservatories, Sherborne Windows and Village Conservatories have been named winners in the ATLAS Installation of the Month competition.
Vision Conservatories created a large rear extension on a family home with three Atlas lanterns in two styles – a contemporary lantern in the centre with two regular lanterns on either side.
Managing director Mike Keeling said: “We persuaded them to go for it with two lantern styles. Although the styles are clearly different, they complement each other perfectly, showing that you can easily combine the two and achieve incredible results.”
Third time winner Sherborne Windows replaced a tired gable ended conservatory with a T-shaped orangery, complete with Atlas lantern. The traditionally-styled orangery reintroduced plenty of original features and is much more in keeping with the 1930s property.
“The Atlas roof was one of the most satisfying elements of the project,” says Chris Long, managing director. “It balances with the traditional orangery and creates a real sense of grandeur but it’s not fussy or cluttered at all, which is exactly what the homeowner wanted.”
‘No compromises’ was the brief for Village Conservatories when it designed an extension for a Dorset farmhouse – a novel setting for a vodka distillery. The slim Atlas lantern elongates the room, while the large aluminium bi-folding doors maximise the views of the surrounding countryside.
Colin Dicker, managing director said: “The homeowner didn’t want unsightly tie bars to detract from their new extension or spoil their views, so it’s no surprise that the Atlas lantern won their hearts..“
