Orangeries

Parkwood are the Premier Choice for Timber Orangeries

Orangeries go back to impressive seventeenth-century structures where affluent owners of large residences grew citrus fruit. Nowadays, whether you’re planning indoor horticulture or not, decades of experience designing, making and installing timber orangeries makes us the logical choice for smooth installation of this most desirable home improvement…

The selection of quality materials, considered design, meticulous craftsmanship and the discrete use of innovative new weatherproofing products – will make your Parkwood Oak Framed Conservatory reassuringly comfortable for many years to come. 

Elegant Painted Timber Orangery

This made-to-measure orangery, incorporates the style and elegance of the existing house windows, and now blends in perfectly to this period listed dwelling.

Entertaining or relaxing, the insulated roof and high performance glazing ensure this room is a pleasure to be in – all year round

This Orangery was made to fit on an existing stone base. The client wanted to replace the decaying, out-of-character 70’s conservatory (see insert) – with something more in-keeping with the existing period house.

When it comes to the details, what is an orangery?
Although you’ll find different definitions, and the manufacturing process is similar for conservatories and orangeries, we define orangeries as follows:

• They’re designed structures with flat roofs that are typically finished with lead or modern single-ply polymeric roof membrane.

• Orangeries generally have brick bases, sometimes extending to the roof and adjoining walls of the house; they tend to stand quite prominently from the main property and have a substantial timber element with heavier-section timber joinery than conservatories.

• They usually feature a multi-panel glazed timber roof lantern.

• Eaves, fascia and soffit detailing is more elaborate than conservatories also.

Contemporary Design Orangery

This beautiful additional room provide the owners with plenty fresh air through the large top hung casement windows, whilst sunshine floods in from overhead through the glazed lantern.

Orangeries look equally fantastic on modern homes as well as period properties
