Bring light and space into your home with an orangery
While traditional orangeries were grand, ostentatious buildings used to grow citrus fruit trees, today they are the prefect answer for homeowners who wish to extend their homes with a structure that has more solidarity than a conservatory, but less than a full, single-storey extension.
Feelings of grandeur are possible by integrating pillars made from brick, insulated aluminium or engineered timber, and glass panelling makes up over 75% of the roof and 50% of the overall structure.
We are able to create contemporary, traditional and lantern orangery designs, customisable with options such as floor to ceiling glass panels, moulded cornices or structural pillars. Our customers have the ability to specify design elements, therefore ensuring that the finished installation matches the architectural character of their home.

Frequently Asked Questions
Orangeries can be a light functional space and a more valuable addition to your
home than a Victorian conservatory or lean-to. Read more about how to choose an orangey for your home…
What is the difference between a conservatory and an orangery?
Typically, orangeries are more solid in structure than conservatories, incorporating less glass in roofs and walls, in turn making them more functional spaces.
What type of roof should I choose for my orangery
Our orangery roof designs are made bespoke for each project. We are able to create designs that can incorporate flat glass panes, lanterns or include internal pelmets around the ceiling, as well as a number of other customisations.
How much does an orangery cost?
Compared to conservatories, orangeries are typically a larger investment since they are more structurally solid and provide a room with multiple uses. However, as with all our products, the overall cost is dependent on size and your choice of materials for the construction.
Do I need planning permission for an orangery?
Planning permission for extensions like orangeries often rely on a number of factors. There are cases where planning permission may not be needed, however the intended size, existing extensions to the property, how the structure connects to the main building and choices around glazing and electrical fittings will all impact whether you will need planning permission for your orangery.
Are orangeries secure?
Our orangery windows and doors all incorporate concealed, multi-point locking systems for our windows and multi-point espagnolette locks for our French or bi-fold doors, ensuring you’re your home and orangery are secure.
Are orangeries thermally efficient?
To create a thermally efficient space, we make sure that our window and door sections are fully weather-proofed and can be designed to include double or triple glazing. We incorporate the latest technology into all of our window and door designs to ensure your orangery will maintain pleasant temperatures all year round.
