Planning, design and construction services for developers, self-builders and homeowners


Figura pioneers the use of fabric structures in small buildings. This extension to a cottage by a canal near the sea is the new conservatory.

The fabric roof is permanent, double skinned and insulated. It transmits only 10% of sunlight, thereby avoiding the overheating inherent in glass roofs. At the same time it provides an even glow by day and by night. The very low profile achieved with the fabric roof, meant that Planning Permission was not required.

The roof is supported by a galvanised steel structure with polished stainless steel fittings, and enclosed by sliding glass doors.

The result is truly a Conservatory for the 21st Century.
