An elegant style of conservatory, the orangery is the epitome of elegance and innovative design. Orangery conservatories are similar to Edwardian or Victorian conservatories and orangeries tend to have a rectangular floor plan to maximise their internal space.
Orangeries were originally used by the rich elite to grow exotic fruits such as citrus trees that grew oranges and lemons – hence how the structure got its name. They were popular between the 17th and 19th centuries at palaces and manor houses – allowing residences to grow fruit during the harsh European winters. Orangeries originated during the renaissance gardens of Italy and were a symbol of wealth and celebrated the dawn of glass making technologies improving.
Now the orangery is less a space to grow citrus fruit and more an area to relax and wind down. Its design lends itself to stylish and classic design and allows light to flow in easily to create something truly special.
Orangeries can come with an internal soffit which down-lighting can be added to for aesthetics and a more contemporary feel. Creating somewhere truly attractive day and night – perfect for entertaining or winding down away from the rest of the house.
With the right connecting doors, such as bi-fold, an orangery can feel like purely an extension of your home and lend itself seamlessly to the existing building work. Particularly as your orangery can be customised to your preferences and that we can source brickwork from your existing home and match the conservatory brickwork to it. Making your orangery seem like it’s always been part of your home.
We offer a range of customisable options to truly make your orangery your own. You can choose from aluminium, PVC-U and hardwood to match your existing window and door framework or personal vision for your orangery. Each has their own benefits and adaptable options such as colour and finish.
We offer a range of roof and window glazing options to make your orangery efficient and stylish – standing out among them is our self-cleaning glass which is not only a great insulator and fantastic at letting light through but has the added benefit of cleaning itself – saving you a job! When it comes to the roof we offer aluminium roof rafters with colour coordinated PVC-U cappings and claddings options available. External perimeter flat roofing is an optional extra if required.
