The combination of insulated brickwork and our high-quality glazing also ensures that they can easily surpass industry standards for thermal performance. So, all of our orangeries offer a comfortable internal temperature throughout the year without draining your energy consumption.Make an Enquiry

Orangeries were first built in the 17th century in the grounds of grand residences. Orangeries were traditionally used for growing exotic fruits in the summer and winter. In modern times orangeries are a middle ground between conservatories and extensions.
Orangeries tend to be more thermally efficient than conservatoires because they have more solid walls than a conservatory. This makes orangeries warmer than conservatories. This is the same in the winter. An orangery should be easier to keep warm than a conservatory saving money on energy costs.Make an Enquiry
The term “orangery” dates back to the 17th century when citrus trees, such as oranges and lemons, were imported from warmer climates to Europe. These trees were considered a luxury and a status symbol among the wealthy, and they were often grown in special buildings called orangeries.
An orangery is similar to a greenhouse, but it is specifically designed to house citrus trees and other exotic plants. The building typically features large windows and a glass roof to provide ample sunlight and warmth for the plants. Over time, the term “orangery” has come to be associated with any type of conservatory or sunroom that features large windows and a glass roof.
No, an orangery is not exempt from building regulations in the UK. Any new construction of a conservatory, orangery, or other type of extension must comply with building regulations to ensure that it is structurally sound and safe for occupants.
Building regulations cover various aspects of construction, including structural stability, insulation, ventilation, fire safety, and access. The exact requirements may vary depending on the size and type of the orangery, as well as its location on the property.Make an Enquiry
