Orangeries are traditionally free standing buildings set within the grounds of large stately homes. They are typically built from stone and brick with large ornate windows and doors. The roof of an orangery is often a glass lantern design that sits within another glass roof or within a flat roof… which is where the modern ‘orangery’ has its roots.

The name ‘Orangery’ has been adopted by the conservatory industry, and refers to a design which has a solid flat roof with a glass lantern set within.

Orangeries (or rather, Lantern Roof Extensions) are arguably one of the 21st Centuries most fashionable and sought after items. Orangeries have been the object of inspiration to create designs that maximise light and open space on properties both large and small – traditional or contemporary.

The structural build of an orangery design is crucial. The roof should always be designed to be independent of the glazing. The glazing is only there as an aesthetic feature and to make the room weatherproof. This is achieved using stone or brick together with steel or engineered glu-lam beams and is one of the reasons correctly designed orangeries can be quite costly… but worth every penny!

Orangeries often feature an open plan design, usually extending from a kitchen with the removal of the old exterior wall(s) to form a spacious family kitchen and dining room for relaxing or entertaining with the “wow” factor.
