What is an Orangery?
Originally used for the cultivation of citrus trees in an environment that protected them from the Great British weather, today orangeries are an ideal way to bring a sense of splendour to your home.
Fab Systems orangeries come in a range of traditional and contemporary designs to suit your home - and with each one you will find impressively high ceilings to maximise space, thick pillars that provide both grandeur and privacy, and cutting-edge thermal technology for all-year-round comfort.
So no matter which Fab Systems orangery you choose, you'll be guaranteed the wow factor.
The orangery has its 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' came from the 16th century when European aristocrats collected citrus trees. Initially, these orangeries (as the collection of trees was known) stayed in the gardens. But with the introduction of plant pots, they could be brought indoors into specially designed areas.
The traditional orangery combines solid brick pillars, a performance glass roof and a range of traditional finishing touches. This option is the perfect way for you to bring a beautifully charming period look to your home. Combine a glazed roof, traditional brick piers and a decorative cornice to create the orangery look. The insulated internal pelmet adds thermal efficiency and provides a useful place for lighting and speakers.
If you are looking for something a little more than a conservatory, then an orangery is the best solution for you. You don't always need planning permission too as long as the extension is between a certain width and height so you get to open up your space.
