Dating back to the 17th century in renaissance gardens in Italy, Orangeries were once a symbol of wealth and affluence. As the name suggests, they were used to grow orange and other citrus trees by allowing sunlight to enter through the glass exterior. Today, modern Orangeries are often used to extend the home, much like conservatories but with a different structure and variations in architectural features.

Modern Orangeries have developed significantly since their origins from the 17th century. They are a beautiful addition to any property from a detached house to a bungalow, from a semi-detached to a terraced house we can manufacture and supply an orangery to fit the dimensions available in size and height. Orangeries are a beautiful way to introduce more space to a home, let in more light and most importantly to increase available living space.
Orangeries are typically constructed with a perimeter roof (usually flat, curved or architectural) and have a brick base and a roof lantern as a roof, allowing the maximum amount of light in. Internally, there are various wood architecture features available.
Our products are made from high-quality woods including Timber, Oak and other hardwood / softwood materials. Our specialists can also help with all the different aspects involved in home extension projects such as:
Our range includes Modern design, traditional design, contemporary design and more. All of our products are built in our warehouse using the latest in CNC machine techniques along with high-quality craftsmanship to ensure a perfect finish on the product.
Orangeries (Sometimes referred to as Orangerie / Orangeri) originated in the 17th century, and were added onto properties to grow orange and other citrus trees. This was done by creating a glass roof which allowed maximum light to enter and with it, heat. Like a greenhouse, orangeries also trop heat, creating a warmer climate within the orangery, making the growth of fruit and other temperature-sensitive plants more effective.
Early orangeries were mainly south-facing and used brick or stone bases, followed by a wooden frame structure which was generally constructed from Hardwood. However, in the 17th, 18th and into the early 19th century, the wood treatments were generally insufficient to provide a long lifespan for the wooden structure. Today’s hardwood joinery is treated with purpose-made paints and treatments which ensure that the wood is protected from weathering and ageing, including dampness, mold, rot and other issues.
They were also traditionally a statement of wealth, and often found on grand houses and wealthy estates as a property extension. However, in modern times, manufacturing and building technologies have advanced to allow the much cheaper production of the glass and framing which make up the structures. Orangeries are now more affordable than ever and make a beautiful addition to any property. The timber construction of your orangery will give a traditional and elegant look, using stunning architecture to support the structure and lantern roof.

So, how can a luxury orangery from Orangeries UK really improve your home?
1. They create additional space.

An Orangery is perfect if you are a fan of the outdoors but can’t spend as much time as you’d like outside. The glass windows allow more natural light into your property and provide a clear view of the outside. This is the perfect place to watch the seasons change, from summer through to winter.
3. An orangery is versatile and functional
An Orangery can be built for a number of reasons. Whether you want to extend your kitchen or dining area, create a playroom for your children, or a space for relaxation that’s separate from the rest of the house, we can help you design the Orangery that’s perfect for you.
