Edwardian Double Hipped

Edwardian Double Hipped Conservatory

What is it?

An Edwardian Double Hipped, Double Hipped Edwardian, Hipped Back Edwardian, Edwardian with rear box gutter are all common names for this style. The conservatory is the same basic design as a standard Edwardian (please refer to the ‘Edwardian’ style for basic detail).

Plan (Bird’s eye) view of an Edwardian Double Hipped


The difference from a standard Edwardian comes in with the design of the roof. The Double Hipped roof is a pitched style (usually at around 25 degrees from the horizontal). This means that it slopes upwards from it’s sides meeting at a central ridge height. In addition to a standard Edwardian style roof, at the rear it is also pitched, which is also known as ‘rear hip’ or ‘hipped back’. The roof will most often make use of a ‘box gutter’ at the rear where rainwater runs down towards the property. The ridge is the apex part of the roof, much the same as a normal house roof. Look again at the bird’s eye view mentioned above, the central horizontal line on this diagram is the Ridge.

Advantages of the Edwardian Double Hipped Style

  • The classic Edwardian look can enhance the original features of an Edwardian era property.
  • Gives a simple ‘clean’ look with straight lines and simple shape.
  • Maximises use of internal floor area of the conservatory.
  • Double hipped roof will accommodate for any height restrictions at the property where the conservatory is to be sited.
  • Can accommodate greater widths when where an Edwardian style is desired.

Disadvantages of the Edwardian Double Hipped Style

  • Width versus projection must always be a compromise. When width is paramount, then the projection has a maximum limit and vice versa.
