17th Century Timber Orangeries

“Originally a structure used to grow fruit which over time has become a fashionable asset to any property installed on.”

Timber orangeries were popular in the 17th century as extensions to properties, and often housed fruits or an array of plants.  Today the classic timber orangery with a timber roof lantern to the centre and flat roof surround is a perfect extension solution to blend a conservatory and a standard garden room.  All our timber orangeries are designed and manufactured to provide fully useable rooms all year round to compliment any home.

Our timber orangeries can be manufactured in a range of hardwoods, we use Sapele, Idigbo or Oak with each timber providing a design solution for any range of colours or stains needed.  We can also provide a modern look and feel even when using timber for our orangeries, as we can provide glass walling and bi-fold doors, so any look can be achieved from contemporary to traditional.

All our glass specifications are designed to compliment the timber framing to provide glass u-values of 1.2, which are lower than current building regulation demands.  All our timber orangeries are CE marked for assurance when dealing with building regulations.  We can also provide structural calculations if required for projects to justify roof elements for building regulations.

Many examples of our timber orangeries can be found within the gallery pages.  For any styles found that are of interest please do not hesitate to leave your contact details and we can call by return to discuss your timber orangery requirements.
