Orangeries

For something slightly different to a conventional conservatory, an orangery could provide the perfect solution. Designed to work with the original architecture of your home or building. The roof structure of an orangery is different to that of a conservatory. It’s made from a glazed lantern with a section of flat roof around the perimeter.

What this means is that there is less glass in the roof. It can be angled lower than a regular conservatory, to the point where it is almost flat. Stylistically, this means it blends in much more easily with your home. Yet it is still eye-catching and attractive when viewed from the outside.

What is an Orangery

An Orangery is much more of a traditional build in comparison to a conservatory. Normally it will undergo more building regulation approval, notice to build and SAP approval.  The Orangery is basically a traditional, atrium-style conservatory, but with advanced technology from Ultraframe. With an orangery, your adjoining rooms flood with light and there’s a feeling of grandeur that comes from the interior height of the orangery.

The orangery can also be combined with the Livinroom system, meaning that you can easily install spotlights to give your new room a stylish yet practical finish.

Our orangeries are bespoke in design and installed by our own team of dedicated, employed installers.

What is the difference between a conservatory and an orangery?2018-09-17T14:00:32+00:00

The roof structure of an orangery is different to that of a conservatory: it’s made from a glazed lantern. The overall aesthetic of an orangery is similar to that of a traditional brick extension and is usually adopted as an additional room for the household, rather than a conservatory which are often only fully utilised during the summer months unless heating systems are . The greater use of brick as opposed to glass in an orangery also provides additional privacy.

How much will my new orangery cost?2018-09-17T14:00:41+00:00

There are usually more extensive building works involved in the construction of an orangery, along with internal finishing such as plastering, electrics and lighting. This means that the overall cost can be greater than that of a traditional conservatory. However, it is also worth bearing in mind that investing in orangery will probably add value to your home when the time comes to sell.

Can I use my orangery all year around?2018-09-17T13:59:19+00:00

Yes, you can. An orangery can be used all year around, and clients often use them as a lounge, dining room or a way of extending their kitchen.

Will my orangery need a planning application?2018-09-17T13:58:45+00:00

An orangery falls under the category of a permitted development, and must adhere to the following planning restrictions to avoid a planning application:

  • At least half of the new wall and three quarters of the roof is either glazed or translucent material.
  • They are built at ground level and are less than 30 square metres in floor area.
  • The orangery is separated from the house by external quality door(s).
  • Glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply with the applicable building regulations requirements.

Under the regulations that came into effect on 1st October 2008, the following conditions must also be adhered to:

  • No more than half the area of land around the original house* would be covered by additions or other buildings.
  • No extension forward of the principal elevation or side elevation fronting a highway.
  • No extension to be higher than the highest part of the roof.
  • Maximum depth of a single-storey rear extension of three metres for an attached house and four metres for a detached house.
  • Maximum height of a single-storey rear extension of four metres.
  • Maximum depth of a rear extension of more than one storey of three metres including ground floor.
  • Maximum eaves height of an extension within two metres of the boundary of three metres.
  • Maximum eaves and ridge height of extension no higher than existing house.
  • Side extensions to be single-storey with maximum height of four metres and width no more than half that of the original house.
  • Roof pitch of extensions higher than one storey to match existing house.
  • No verandas, balconies or raised platforms.
  • On designated land** no permitted development for rear extensions of more than one storey; no cladding of the exterior; no side extensions.

Where work is proposed to a listed building, listed building consent may be required.

*The term “original house” means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date). Although you may not have built an extension to the house, a previous owner may have done so.

**Designated land includes National Parks, the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites

Does my orangery need to adhere to building regulations?2018-09-17T13:58:05+00:00

The configuration of your orangery will need to be carefully considered if you want to avoid building regulations. Your orangery needs to adhere to the following restrictions, or it will have to adhere to building regulations in full:

  • At least half of the new wall and three quarters of the roof is either glazed or translucent material.
  • They are built at ground level and are less than 30 square metres in floor area.
  • The orangery is separated from the house by external quality door(s).
  • Glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply with the applicable building regulations requirements.
