Projects by Fresand Wintergarten
Even if our website's pictures already give you the first impression of our work, we would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to some of our projects a little closer. Of course, it covers only a small part of the whole picture. When it comes to the actual creation the possibilities are almost limitless – from modern to simple-elegant up to classical and playfull, literally everything is possible!
The Double Application
The special thing about this conservatory are the two gables which are not (like usually) framing the entrance door. The door is integrated in the folding arrangement between both gables. Choosing this solution we were able to create a spacious opening in the center which provides a direct pass into the garden in summer and, together with the facades- and roof-windows, an optimal ventilation. The grey varnishing of the conservatory goes not only very well with the materials and the whole interiour arrangement, it is also highly soiling-resistent and contributes to a friendly ambience inside.
The Black Beauty
This dream of a conservatory with a hipped saddle roof inspired by the "Belle Epoque"-style enchants beside the exceptional deep-black varnishing with its structured decorations of the ridge. Both grand, 2-flight-league doors open up the patio and the garden. Inside, the bright Limestone floor eye-pleasingly contrasts the dark glass construction and the balustrade disguising varnished in the same colour. The stock of trees close-by provides a natural shadowing for the conservatory during the summer.
The Charm of the Seasons
During the summer this conservatory presents you with a wonderful view directly into the charming strub garden. During the rather unsteady autumn you can observe the changing of seasons with a hot cup of tea in your hands through the insulating glass panels. These also provide the right temperature inside the conservatory during the winter when it becomes a cosy island in the midst of snow and ice. In the spring it turns out to be a place to catch the first warming sunrays and allows the owners to witness the awakening of the nature. Thus melt in- and outdoors in just one living space, overall protected from wind and weather.
The Hunting Room in the Green
Beside an enlargement of the living room in the garden this conservatory should also offer an adequate place for some hunting trophies of its owners. For this particular concept we decided to go for a mortar wall to provide a perfect presentation for the awarded trophies of three Kudu-antelopes. The balustrade disguisings in front of the windows are not only there to hide the heaters. Decorated with hassocks they can be used as benches. The colour matching pinoleums in the roof area provide the shade in the summer.
The Stone on Stone
At the manor Groß-Siemen in 2009 we have created this dream of an orangery in classical style using historical materials. It perfectly follows the design vocabulary of the manor house and provides a stylish accomodation for lemon- and orange-trees, olives, camellias and oleander during the winter. During the beautiful summer months it is used as a café or can be booked for events and functions.
The Zellesmühle Manor
For the scenery park at the Zellesmühle manor, full of atmospheric sceneries with its generous pond- and water arrangements, orchards and flower plantations, we planned and built this grand, representative orangery. Crowned with its elegant lantern roof the building turns out to be a truly wonderful eye-catcher in the midst of the extensive park areal.
The Composition in Red and Green
The challenge of this project was to provide the extension of the living area on both sides of the house and still compile a conservatory which perfectly enchances the charm of the old farmhouse. The solution we found was a more prominent main part on the entrance site of the house and a square optically subordinated connecting side part. The chosen dark green colour, the same colour we used for the pinoleum shadowings, excellently fits to the red bricks of the house. The big folding door helps to complete melt in the inside of the conservatory with the adjoining garden.
Excellent Climate for Inhabitants & their Pets
In this style-conservatory created by us the roof lantern is not only an optical accent for the roof area. The lantern also provides the more effective derivation of the hot air rising upwards. The windows of the roof lantern are controlled by a thermostat that opens them automatically when the opposed temperature is reached. Inhabitants and also their pets can spend beautiful hours here all-year-long.
The Marienfels Castle
For the probably best known entertainer in Germany we built this conservatory in 2006. In terms of design it is inspired by the Tudor-style, which dominates the whole maner – the Marienfels Castle. With its roof lantern the conservatory fits structurally into the artistic form of the main building. The main roof is not glazed, differently than the lantern roof. It is covered with a slate-grey pre-weather-conditioned titan's zink using the standing-seam-technique. This way a strong heating up of the conservatory during the summer can be avoided. On the inside, the profile boards especially made by us create some very intersting effects on the roof area.
The Victorian Dream
This conservatory in the Victorian style with the garland gable and the mullion mouldings strip was built by us for a client in Hamburg. The complete roof structure is protected by the powder-coated aluminium profiles, typical for all our conservatories. It seelmlesly fits stylistically in to the main house. A special challenge was the big height difference between the floor of the residential level and the garden area. We solved this problem by using two different stairs combinations: two steps from the living area to the conservatory and three steps out of the conservatory. The last mentioned ones were build more broadly to give the conservatory an optically accentuated foundament and to avoid the „tower-look“.
British Life Style In Slovakia
Our Slovakian client had a dream: he wanted a stylish living space on his estate that would fit in with the English style of the house. It should be light-flooded and representative, but also comfortable, durable and of the highest quality. We were able to fulfill this wish with this beautiful orangery. The roof and facades are equipped with motorised Pinoleum shading systems which are automatically controlled by a bus system. All window openings are fitted with exclusive, almost invisible Transpatec insect screen. The entire exterior of the Orangery consists of Accoya or Tricoya with a 50-year guarantee.
The example of this orangery near Frankfurt am Main makes it very clear how important an individual design is for the success of a project and for a harmonious appearance of the entire building ensemble. In this project we deliberately opted for strong proportions and wider views. The inclination of the glazed roof of the Orangerie is very flat in order not to cover the loggia, which is important for the design of the building. The Farrow & Ball shade of the shutters has been taken up in order to harmoniously connect the ensemble.
under the sunn of sicily
A hotelier from Taormina in Sicily wanted a conservatory on his hotel terrace.
He wanted to offer his guests the possibility to have breakfast in an air-conditioned room without having to give up the fantastic panoramic view of Etna, the city scenery and the Mediterranean Sea. We could realize this wish for him. We adapted the construction to the local weather conditions and of course to the impression of the hotel itself. The roof was highly insulated to keep out the very hot temperatures and the blinding sun. We chose copper for the roofing because it harmonises perfectly with the red colour of the façade. The elements were glazed with self-cleaning solar control insulating glass. The elements themselves were made of Accoya and painted in RAL 1015 to match the stucco elements of the hotel.
In addition to the winter garden on the terrace, we added a new glass roof for the foyer and another, smaller winter garden to the hotel some time later.

Bonbon in bonn
For a townhouse in Bonn we created this beautiful winter garden. It offers a double benefit: the right part extends the living room to a dining area with garden view while the left part is a cold winter garden with overheight door wings and offers a wintering place for the sensitive potted plants of the garden. This guarantees a view of the greenery even in winter.
Many customers become "repeat offenders", including our old friend Dr. Herrmann from the Zellesmühle estate. A few years after the construction of his large orangery, he commissioned us to build this conservatory, which crowns a plateau at the beginning of an enchanting Mediterranean water staircase.
