Orangery Design and Planning Yorkshire

The origins of the modern orangery comes from Victorian times; traditionally an orangery was a tall building mostly made from glass with brick pillars to support the window frames. Orangeries were used to shelter plants during the Winter periods to protect them from frost.

The modern orangery could not be more different; orangeries are now used as a living extension which can be used in all seasons. Recent advancements in glass and glazing has meant that glass rooms are now highly thermally efficient compared to five years ago; this is one of the main reasons that orangeries have become much more popular in recent years.

Traditional Yorkshire Orangeries

A traditional orangery is constructed in a different way to the increasingly popular uPVC orangery. Traditionally an orangery is made by hanging structural timbers across a brick structure to allow a roof light to sit on the timbers. The timbers are then timber framed and boarded with insulation and a roof covering such as rubber is used to ensure the timbers are watertight. This traditional method of orangery construction is the preferred method of orangery construction; however it is no longer the popular option due to the increased cost in building and labour.

At AWM we are happy to provide a quotation for both a traditionally constructed orangery and a uPVC orangery roof kit so you have both options; we can run you through the differences and benefits of each construction method.

New uPVC Orangery Roof Kits

The alternative method to construct an orangery is to use an orangery roof kit, this kit comprises of a conservatory roof with an extended conservatory ring beam to give the illusion of the roof being a skylight. The orangery roof sits on the uPVC window frames, much like a conservatory, then the internal coving kit is installed to cover over this join.

Down lighters can then be installed along the coving before the systems are plastered to replicate an orangery roof.
