Convert An Old Conservatory to a Sunroom

This old lean-to conservatory in Dublin was in need of a revamp. As it was a very old conservatory there was no insulation and no solar control glass so it was too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. The client requested an all year round room with large glass viewing windows to capture the view of the garden.

Design Solution

We designed a pitched roof sunroom which would increase the ceiling height and create a feeling of a much larger room.

We suggested that the opening windows be positioned to the side to allow for picture frame windows with large panes to create a better view of the garden. Double doors to the front would also allow a better view to the garden.


The entire existing conservatory and floor and foundations would have to be removed to allow for proper insulated floors and walls.

This would also involve lifting the existing patio to allow for new sunroom foundations to be excavated.


The sunroom build was completed within the 6 weeks agreed. Roof windows were fitted to allow plenty of light inside to the house.

These were also fitted to the back of the sunroom roof over the openings to the house.

The house required some additional work to the heating system to bring it up the modern specification which our plumber was able to help with.


A stunning example of a large grey sunroom, which blends in perfectly with the existing home.

The client said

Before selecting Brightspace to build our conservatory/sunroom, we investigated several other suppliers. We selected Brightspace because, though the most expensive, they were completely professional in all their dealings from the design, manufacture and installation
