Our Orangery Products

An Orangery or "Orangerie" was a room / extension or stand alone building typically found on the grounds of high end residences from the 17th-19th centuries where citrus fruits typically stored. These structures typically originated from the Renaissance gardens of Italy.

A nationwide supplier of high quality Orangeries, Conservatory & Garden Rooms. We manufacture all of our products in-house using -quality, long-lasting hardwoods including Timber, Oak, Pine, Sapele & Idigbo.

Orangeries are built with a perimeter roof & a suspended roof lantern / glass lantern & either a single set of opening french-style doors or more commonly bifold doors. The orangery itself is a bespoke structure which can be designed to fit onto a property even if space is limited. These structures/property extensions can be constructed for a varity of purposes including kitchen extensions, living room extensions or as a structure to connect two properties.

Difference Between Orangery And Conservatory

The difference between an Orangery & a Conservatory is that a conservatory has to have more glass than an Orangery and that an Orangery will tend to have more brickwork that forms the frame/base of the structure. The main visual differences are that Orangeries typicaly have a flat perimeter roof with a centralised roof lantern (which can be pitched) as well as a brick base built on a solid concrete foundation, whilst Conservatories have a pitched roof & a frame which runs from the roof edge down to the floor with little or no brick base. Orangeries tend to be more suitable for larger residences & are also better suited for interconnecting property or acting as stand alone garden rooms.

Our Products are built by combining high quality materials with expert craftsmanship, that alone makes our products extremely energy efficient and thermally dynamic. Regardless of the choice of materials, our products make a great addition to any house / home or property, whether it’s for extra living space, storage space or even an office.

We combine safety, security & energy efficiency into all product design ensuring maximum uValue performance. Our products use multipoint dead-locking windows & doors / bifold doors to maximise security. Our double & triple glazing options combined with precision manufacturing add to improved energy efficiency to reduce wasted energy. Our easyClean glass & solar control glass help to reduce excess heat build-up as well as offering reduced maintenance routines.

Popular Home Extension Ideas

Orangerie were buildings frequently found / located in prestige residences throughout the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Orangeries were designed to be similar to a greenhouse (glass room) to allow maximum light and warmth into a property which typically grew citrus trees, orange trees & other produce. This type of structure frequently contained complex architecture for looks and for glass panels to be mounted to in an arrangement that allowed for maximum light to enter.

The Orangery originally came from the Renaissance gardens in Italy at the time when manufacturing for glass was sufficient to produce the glass sizes required for the roofing systems. The Dutch led the way in developing larger and larger panes of window glass. Dutch manuals showed solid roofs that were beamed or vaulted and were easier to manufacture using the heat from a stove rather than using open fires and blue flames. They eventually became a symbol of wealth and were expensive to manufacutre & buy which led to the installations being in more affluent areas of the UK and other areas in europe.

Learn more about The History of Orangeries

An Orangery is a room or dedicated building that is the equivalent of an atrium-style conservatory featuring a brick base and a roof composed of a centralised roof lantern with a flat roof perimeter. Read more about "What is an Orangery"

The main differences between an Orangery and a Wooden Conservatory are the base and the roof. Orangery designs typically feature a brickwork base & flat roof with a centralised roof lantern whilst conservatories typically have a centralised pitched roof and a frame construction that goes from the ground directly up to the pitched roof edge with no perimeter.

Orangery cost can range anywhere from £8,000 through to £100,000+ depending on the size, style, design and features. Typically Orangery Prices will range from £10,000 onwards.

Our products are mainly constucted from multiple materials from a timber, oak or pine framework with a brick or stone base/pillars and a corbel gutter. Roof lanterns are typically timber framed with aluminium capping. We do not use UPVC/PVC for any of our products. Bifold Doors are typically made from either timber or oak Hardwood.

There are lots of different terms used for the same or similar structures including hothouses, greenhouses, winter gardens, summer rooms/summerhouse.

Choosing a wood type is all down to style preferences, as all of the Sapele, Idigbo and Oak hardwoods which we use are naturally durable, and are factory-finished with purpose-made paints and stains to protect them from the elements. The different species we use each have their own grain and colour characteristics. If you would like to learn more, please speak to one of our team who will be happy to help. For opaque-painted colours, and darker translucent stained colours we use Sapele timber as standard, as this species has a dense, close grain and is naturally strong and durable. For lighter stained colours we recommend Idigbo, which has a lighter, more yellow colour and a slightly more open grain than Sapele. For that really special touch, or a rustic look, why not choose European Oak. We recommend that Oak is stained in one of our lightest stain colours as this lets the natural beauty of the timber through.
We offer a range of flooring types including real hardwood flooring, wood and stone effect flooring, mosaic, metallic and pebble effect vinyl tiles and more.
Thermal efficiency is important for both environmental reasons and energy efficiency reasons. Our products are precision made meaning perfect air tight seals between components giving excellent thermal U-Values and excellent energy efficiency. Our products conform to strict energy efficiency standards & offer fantastic eco-friendly properties.
Most of the time people choose to extend their property with a conservatory just for extra living space, however, Orangeries are frequently used to extend key areas of a home such as a living room or kitchen. Conservatories are more popular for smaller properties, whilst Orangery structures tend to extend a property much further.
Your property will require additional planning permission before any further extensions can be made to ensure that specific guidelines are met. Adding any extension to your home is considered to be "permitted development" which generally does not need an application for planning permission unless it falls outside of set planning guidelines. You can read more about planning permission here: https://www.planningportal.gov.uk/permission/commonprojects/conservatories/Other planning permission information can be found at https://www.planningportal.co.uk/info/200130/common_projects/10/conservatories
