however you use your new oak orangery,
it will soon become the heart of your home.
The simplest description of a modern orangery, is a room with a glazed lantern set into the roof. The original oak orangeries of 17th century Italy were always, as they are now, designed as space in which to entertain. Originally conceived to lengthen the growing season of citrus plants, they would often house fountains and grottos, but were always designed as an additional feature space in which the homeowner could entertain and impress guests.
Today, we find there is more focus on the entertainment and less on the fountains! Traditional oak beams or vaulted roofs with large areas of thermal glass are now just a few examples from a multitude of options for extending your home and living space
A GreenRooms oak orangery can provide a room in which to dine under a seasonal night sky, or an artistic refuge in which to get away from the main house to gain inspiration and focus your thoughts. A bespoke oak orangery extension can be very versatile, with each elevation taking in any combination of masonry, windows, french doors or bifolding doors. Your lifestyle will dictate the use, but the possibilities are plentiful - a kitchen extension, feature dining room, study, light and airy living room or simply a room to entertain. In addition, an Oak extension will almost certainly add value to your home - something that our oak frame architectural designers can discuss with you on your initial design and costing consultation - ensuring your new timber orangery is both a lifestyle as well as financial investment.
