Bespoke Orangeries Explained

A beginners guide to Orangeries

Some people may never have heard of an orangery, let alone a bespoke hardwood orangery. The first recorded orangery was built in Padua, Italy in 1545. Initially sparse and practical, without being as ornate as some modern interpretations, the humble orangery soon evolved into becoming a contemporary, exotic feature of country homes, and became the envy of neighbours nationwide.

Basically, they acted as exotic, ornamental greenhouses, but nowadays their solid construction means that they are seen as the middle ground between a brick-built extension and an all glass conservatory.

We pride ourselves on our attention to sustainable practices & sourcing our materials in a way that respects the environment.

The main thing that will distinguish an orangery from a conservatory is its roof. Where a conservatory features a roof constructed entirely of glass, an orangery has a solid flat roof with a central section of pitch glass. This allows the room to open out with light and add more detail, which a traditional extension cannot achieve.

The Orangeries vs. Conservatories decision?

orangery styles designsTraditionally, an orangery is constructed using masonry walls up to about a metre before glass then extending up to the roof. Contemporary design and technology means that orangeries are now often constructed using hardwood.

However, this begs the question, why use hardwood in my orangery?

Why is Hardwood is a great choice for Orangeries?

Hardwood’s integral strength and workability make it an extremely versatile choice, as it can be used to construct pretty much any design imaginable, ones which aluminium and plastic cannot be used in. Hardwood can be used for even the most complicated of designs. Hardwood orangeries are generally constructed using state-of –the-art routers which can now even accommodate intricate designs. This allows you to customise the orangery to such a level that it can truly be unique in every way.
