Wooden Orangery - Design & Build

We will design & build you a beautiful exclusive oak orangery or a hardwood orangery in another timber. Why do people choose orangeries instead of conservatories? You have probably heard the saying, “People in glass houses shouldn’t…” and orangeries can offer more privacy from neighbours than typical traditional conservatories.

Our clients frequently specify a kitchen orangery or a dining room orangery for other reasons as well; architecturally an orangery will complement certain traditional house styles more pleasingly than a conservatory and thermal efficiency is particularly good when compared with a typical conservatory. An orangery is an extension with a lot of glass, providing true additional living space and not only provides a ‘Wow’ to your home, but will definitely add proportionate value.

There are also practical reasons why the partial flat roof of an orangery can solve a difficult structural detail where a pitched conservatory roof wouldn’t fit, such as an overhanging first floor bay window or low pitched roof. It can also be designed to allow access to windows, painted walls and guttering above.

Orangery or Conservatory?

We often get asked, what's the difference between an Orangery and a Conservatory?

In simple terms, a conservatory has 75% or more of its roof glazed, whilst an orangery typically has a part flat roof and one or more glazed lanterns. Because the orangery normally has less than 75% of the roof glazed, the orangery becomes more like a light spacious room during the day and has a unique ambiance created by low voltage, or LED, down-lighters in the ceiling to create atmospheric lighting at night. If an orangery has a floor area of over 30 sq.m, or is open-plan with the room behind, it will requires full building regulations. This is not a problem. Currently 30% of our work falls into this category and we deal with and listed building, planning, or building regulations requirements on your behalf.

On hot days, the orangery with its flat roof, greater wall area and one or more roof lanterns will protect the interior from excessive heat and during the colder winter months the walls and flat roof of an orangery will provide more insulation than an all-glass extension. You’ll still enjoy plenty of natural light through the sides and the roof lanterns and you can use the room all year around.

Happy Customer Reviews

"Thank you very much for all the hard work and dedication that has gone into creating our beautiful new orangery. You have captured the design I had imagined perfectly."

Jane & Alan Lewis – Chelmsford, Essex

Beautifully designed orangery. It took a long time, partly because we were away at various times during the build, but the result is worth it. The workmen for the various stages - ground works, carpentry, electrics - were considerate and trustworthy. Not the cheapest on the market, but worth the money.

Mr Browner – Surrey

"The Richmond Oak Orangery was a wonderful addition. It's brought us out into the garden. We sit here, very much all through the year. It's brought all that we love in our garden into our house.

Mr Chant - Yeovil, Somerset
