Traditional or contemporary orangeries
Constructed in timber, oak or aluminium, designed specifically to suit your property.
The original orangeries of the 17th to 19th centuries were very grand, masonry structures with windows tall enough for the lower sash to be raised and used as a door. High walls, topped with an ornate stone parapet served to conceal a glazed roof or lantern.
Orangeries were used for housing exotic plants during frosty winter months and in the summer they were popular venues for genteel tea parties or more extravagant entertaining.
The modern orangery is more likely to be used as an extended dining area than a romantic rendezvous among the indoor palms! The glazed central lantern allows natural light to flood the room making it light and bright, while the insulated roof section surrounding the lantern enables the orangery to be integral to the rest of the house, providing a stunning and versatile extension.
All our orangeries are bespoke, designed specifically to compliment the architecture of the property whilst reflecting the requirements and taste of the client.
Orangeries can be constructed using a variety of timbers, or they can be made more contemporary and minimalist by use of slim aluminium framing for the windows and doors.
