Long shot of beautiful orangery in the evening

Grand Orangery

This grand and very striking timber orangery has been built at the rear of a beautiful mansion house, in a style in keeping with the house. The new orangery was designed to make a bigger statement and to be balanced with additions on the right-hand side, creating interest via the introduction of symmetrical bay projections on two sides providing additional useable floor space and linking the garden with the house. This building was a Crown Building and so Heritage approval was a prerequisite. Raising the ceiling area adjacent to the existing glazed doors to the kitchen vastly improved the natural light, while the new voluminous glazed roof with a two-tier lantern was designed to fit with the existing proportions of the palatial sized house, while still maintaining the domestic scale internally.

Opening into the Smallbones kitchen, the orangery provides a delightful space to relax and enjoy views of the garden. Elaborate in design, the orangery also has a contemporary feel that blends with the house perfectly. Featuring a turret topped roof lantern and perimeter ceiling margins it accommodates dramatic downlighters and is finished with a stone floor. The projecting bay with the leaded light feature at clerestory level adds fine detail and value to the existing architecture. This building is a delight to look at and sit in, day or night.

  • The design service was smooth, fast and very well executed. The drawings were good and there were a lot of changes made to accommodate us.
