The owners of this south facing orangery are keen gardeners. Their vision was for a room leading from the kitchen, enabling them to experiment with unusual types of indoor planting and from which to enjoy their beautiful landscaped surroundings.

The scheme also needed to utilise an existing garden wall which needed to be extended in height, in front of which were built concealed service rooms including a small office, store and boiler room.

Plans for south and east elevations including a roof plan showing the inset roof design featuring a box gutter.

This classical orangery features full length panels and a clerestory, together with classical Tuscan pilasters and entablature.
