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.
