The ideal choice for heritage homes
If sympathetically designed, an orangery can be granted planning permission even in a conservation area. At Wood & Wisdom, this is something we have mastered. Creating orangeries that are respectful of classic sight-lines, giving period authenticity to compliment buildings with traditional architecture.
What is an orangery?
In the 17th and 18th Century wealthy homeowners would install an orangery, a greenhouse like extension, to grow citrus trees and nurture shrubs and exotic plants. It soon became something of a status symbol, and before long had evolved beyond it’s roots to become an inviting, light-filled space in which to spend time.
Today orangeries, and their modern cousin the conservatory, are still just as aspirational. Providing a luxurious and elegant way to enjoy the garden 365 days a year. And to extend your home, without the need for a brick built extension.
Orangery or conservatory?
Orangeries and conservatories are very similar. But, before you decide what’s right for your home, talk to our experts and understand a little more about the key differences:
- Conservatories are focused on viewing the garden. Designed with maximum glazing and minimal brickwork.
- Orangeries on the other hand are designed to be a light-filled, substantial extension. Seamlessly integrated into the existing flow of your home.

Attached to our house is an orangery which we love to use during the warmer months, however during the winter we’d like the option to close it off. In what was previously an open space between the orangery and the house, Wood & Wisdom suggested we install custom wooden internal doors, flexible enough to allow us to open the entire space during the summer, and part close, or fully close off during the winter. Really professional. The team even matched the satin nickel handles to match the fixtures we have throughout the rest of the house.
