Orangeries in Essex and Suffolk

The ‘orangery’ name originates from Italy in the late 15th century, where affluent households would use structures that utilised a mix of glass and brick to grow citrus fruit. Today, the style, and its primarily rectangular shape has become a popular alternative to the traditional conservatory.

Orangeries feature more brick and less glass, making it the perfect blend between a brick extension and a conservatory. The orangery’s design and layout offer the best of both options, with naturally increased thermal efficiency without having to sacrifice the natural light.

Stylish and energy efficient

An orangery adds a practical and versatile living space to any traditional or modern home. As with all the conservatories offered by Halstead Glass, the orangery can be customised to perfectly complement its surroundings by matching the colour of the existing brick in your home into the new extension.

You can choose to incorporate as much glass as you’d like. Combine the natural thermal benefits of the orangery with our energy efficient glazing for outstanding thermal efficiency and a space that keeps a consistently cosy temperature no matter what the British weather throws at you.
