Orangeries are the predecessor to the conservatory and date back to the 17th Century. Originally designed to protect valuable and exotic plants and fruits during the winter months, early orangeries had large windows and doors within a stone building. Today, orangeries retain a unique character that sets them apart from conservatories, but the distinction between a conservatory and orangery has evolved over time and often characterized as having one or more roof lanterns. Orangeries can complement particular architectural styles more easily than a conservatory and are often more suitable for a kitchen or dining area as they offer more privacy.
A timber orangery can be a fantastic addition to any home adding extra space with endless uses, creating a fantastically light room, connecting your room to the outside and adding value to your home.
In our workshop, in Tyseley, Birmingham, our team of highly skilled craftsmen work with the finest timbers using traditional methods of construction to create inspired orangeries that enhance homes and lifestyles.
