As a first class joinery establishment, there is not much our team is not capable of. We have the skills to create everything from gates and garden bridges to orangeries and conservatories. The abilities we possess extend to the complete collection of architectural joinery and more.
A timber orangery or timber conservatory is now the preferred choice for many design conscious homeowners. The perfect stylish alternative to the standard brick built house extension.
And at Wood & Wisom our bespoke design, manufacture and installation service delivers elegant wooden orangeries and conservatories to homes across the South East.
Built using solid oak or Accoya. Incorporatiung bi-folding doors and lantern roofs. And tailored to the size and shape of your space. The result is a light, warm, luxurious new living area in the heart of your home.
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.
