Residential Project: Contemporary Orangery Design

This Orangery has a sharp contemporary design which blends beautifully with the original property.

  • The owners of this property, which is located in a semi-rural area in East Sussex, commissioned Colbran & Wingrove to create an Orangery which would sit well within its surroundings.
  • To achieve this, the design features mid-grey Anthracite aluminium doors and windows which echo the tones of the property’s slate roof, along with a softly coloured render and an Indian stone patio which brings added warmth to the overall scheme.
  • The masonry construction of the new Orangery features a high specification insulated roof and generous pitched lantern along with expansive glazing. It has transformed former patio space creating a generous living space which provides fabulous views over the garden and beyond.


Information About Orangeries

  • Gaining in popularity, Orangeries can provide a versatile means of extending a home. They differ from conservatories by having more substantial proportions and a partially solid roof.
  • This type of construction can achieve far greater energy efficiency than that of a conservatory whilst at the same time providing a transitionary, light-filled space between main property and outdoor space.
  • With the wide range of bi-fold and sliding door systems now available on the market there’s extensive choice when it comes to creating the right design for your home.


Will I Need Planning for an Orangery?

  • By making use of permitted development you may be able to add an Orangery without requiring planning permission but there are some rules as to the positioning and dimensions of Orangeries.
  • Permission is however, required for development within designated areas such as Conservation Areas.
