Orangeries have their modern roots in 17th century Holland. The concept, though, may be much older. There are records of buildings similar to orangeries in 14th-century France, and the Romans had built glorified greenhouses many years before that.
The word 'orangery' comes from the 16th century. Initially, these orangeries (as the collection of trees was known) stayed in the gardens. But, with the introduction of plant pots, they were brought indoors.
A three-tier flat cornice in anthracite grey adds contemporary style to any of our orangeries, while adding shape to the roofline and hiding the gutters.

Our structural goal post arrangement works closely with the roof beam in the Ultrasky to take pressure off your frames and doors. This technology is hidden within the roof system to ensure the wonderful sightlines of communicated by your Ultrasky roof aren’t diminished, while at the same time maximising light penetration.
The structural goal post is light in weight, easy to install and can be concealed within brick piers or Ultraframe super-insulated columns. If you want to include wide-spanning bi-fold or sliding patio doors, our technology will let you do so – because the structural goal post allows for widths of up to 6.5m.
Add super-insulated columns to communicate a sense of grandeur and style. Our columns are aluminium cladded and flat or fluted. Small columns sit at the corner sections of the structure; the larger ones work best when used inline.
The Ultraframe roof sits on the columns and is insulated using enriched expanded polystyrene and styropor carbon, delivering U-values as low as 0.16 (the thermal performance of our columns is five times higher than that of a brick pier of equivalent size).
A decorative cornice will enhance the look of your new room by hiding your guttering and delivering improved external sightlines.
Our cornice can be fitted in one of three flat tier formats. They look modern, sit at 90° angles, and can be used on large, normal or small builds. We also offer a curved cornice that is compatible with all orangery styles.

The cost of an orangery depends on many factors including the ground you are building on, the area you live in, and the spec you choose. To get an idea of how much an orangery costs on your home, contact your local Ultraframe installer.
It is difficult to say whether an orangery is more expensive than a conservatory as there are many options for both an orangery and a conservatory. For instance you may choose an orangery with a small lantern roof, or a conservatory with a solid tiled roof and the price could be very similar. High orangery prices would depend on the type of flat roof, the number and size of the lanterns and the amount of building work needed. High conservatory prices would depend on the amount of building work needed, whether the roof is glazed or solid/tiled and the spec of any glazing.
An orangery has a solid flat roof with one or more glazed lantern roofs. Orangeries often feature brick columns although it is the combination of the flat roof and lanterns that is the defining factor.
An orangery will not always require planning permission - it may be exempt under Permitted Development rules. To find out if this would apply for adding an orangery to your home, speak to the planning officer in the building control department of your local council.
In years gone by, orangeries did used to be warmer than conservatories. However, with the latest conservatory roof technology, this is no longer the case and a conservatory can be every bit as warm as an orangery.
Whether an orangery is cheaper than an extension is dependent on many options - there are many options for both an orangery and an extension. Factors that would influence whether an orangery is cheaper than an extension include the base work needed, the builders/installers who carry out the work and the specification of the orangery and extension products used.
Yes an orangery will add value to your home as it will not only add valuable extra living space, but an orangery is also a highly desirable home improvement. The amount of value it will add to your home will depend on a large number of factors such as the area you live in, your existing home, and the style and specification of orangery.
The biggest factor in determining how long an orangery will take to build is the base work. The time to create an orangery base can vary dependent on the ground conditions and whether piled foundations are needed. Once the base is completed, an orangery should be able to be built within just a couple of weeks.
How long an orangery will last depends on many factors such as the quality of the installation and the products used. If your builder or installer is using quality orangery products such as those form Ultraframe, there is no reason why your orangery shouldn't last for many years.

Yes an orangery can have bi-fold doors. In fact, orangeries with bi-fold doors have become very popular over recent years and are a great option for a modern orangery.
There are many orangery options which can be added to an orangery design so that it suits a modern home. These include flat cornices or parapet features externally to give strong, clean lines, as well as bi-fold doors. The colour of an orangery roof can also have a great bearing on whether it suits a modern home - anthracite grey is very popular right now for windows, doors and conservatory roofs and would be the perfect colour choice for a modern orangery.
An orangery roof is a flat roof which has one or more lantern roof windows to bring light into the room below.
