Why Choose Orangeries / Lanterns?

An orangery/lantern is a home extension typically built with bricks and stylised by large, tall windows and a flat roof with a central, glass lantern. They differ from conservatories in that the latter is a glass structure, with a pitched roof.

The origins of the orangery can be found in the 17th century, where they were utilised to keep fruit, vegetables and plants safe from bad weather. As time has gone on, they have endured, but their purpose has evolved – they’re now a multi-purpose extension, offering a great area for relaxation, dining and entertainment. The majority of orangeries are built from bricks and steel, but depending on your specifications and necessities, we can build in a variety of materials. We’ll be able to have a thorough conversation about the materials we can use during the planning stage of your orangery.

Having an orangery built is a stylish, practical alternative to having an extension. We can design a fashionable orangery that will let natural light shine, whilst ensuring you have the privacy you need.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between a conservatory and an orangery?

The key difference is the material used to build the structures – a conservatory is comprised of glass, a brick base and a pitched roof. An orangery, however, is primarily a brick structure enhanced by large windows, coupled with a glass lantern and typically a flat roof.

Are orangeries worth it?

Yes, they’re both beautiful and functional. Orangeries will add value to your home – a well-built orangery can add just as much value to your home as a single-storey extension, despite costing less to build. A well-designed orangery can add up to 10% to your properties value.

Are orangeries energy efficient?

Our orangeries are incredibly energy efficient – we manufacture all of our orangeries inhouse, ensuring they’re subjected to rigorous quality control systems to ensure high quality craftsmanship. We will always ensure a professional installation, to ensure an orangery capable of keeping your energy bills low whilst providing warmth in the colder seasons.
