Porticos

Discover our range of cast stone portico designs.

Design your grand entrance

Since the eighteenth century, porticos have been a staple part of many house designs. From their beginnings as a shelter from the elements, they’re now a popular feature often associated with Georgian, Neo-Georgian and Georgian revival style projects. Visually striking, a portico (sometimes called a porch) helps to significantly enhance property value and adds that much sought after kerb appeal.

“From the planning stage to delivery, the service, advice and technical knowledge that we received from Haddonstone was second to none.  The portico was such a huge, integral part of the redesign of the house, getting it wrong was not an option.  It is magnificent and exactly what was envisaged when we started.  Thank you so much.”

Discover the Gibbs range of classical porches

Inspired by the famous architect James Gibbs, The Gibbs range is a beautiful nod to eighteenth century architecture. Rooted in tradition, the range has been conceived with the two oldest and most widely-used classical orders in mind: Doric and Ionic. It features both elaborate and more restrained detailing so that the character of the porch can be finely tuned to each site. Designed by Hugh Petter, design director of Adam Architecture, the range is suitable for both new and historic buildings and intended to offer flexibility for architects in any situation.
