Orangeries are fast becoming the most sought-after and installed conservatory types in the conservatory market right now. The reason for this seems to be the versatility of style and being so malleable in expanding living space within a property.
The original orangery originated in the 17th century and since then, architects have modelled and remodelled materials, styles and angles to an almost unrecognisable structure yet still keeping the core aesthetics within the architecture.
From a historical standpoint, an orangery was a building found on the properties of wealthy and influential people with the specific purpose of nursing citrus trees not quite suited to the 17th-century British weather and to avoid then succumbing to frost.
They initial orangeries were of Georgian influence which can be seen today even in residences as renowned as Kensington Palace and Kew.
One of the most striking features that set an Orangery apart from a normal conservatory is that a traditional conservatory will have a solid roof, whereas an orangery will have an inset, glazed ’Lantern Roof’ and no roof beams, unlike its traditional predecessors.
