If you are looking to create new light-filled living space at your home, but want an alternative to a conservatory, an oak framed orangery provides the perfect solution. Orangeries feature more brickwork than glazing, lending them more privacy than conservatory designs. In fact, with brick pillars extending up to the roofline, orangeries create a look and feel that falls uniquely between a conservatory and an extension. However, these structures come fitted with large, expansive windows and skylights or roof lanterns, so homeowners can still enjoy an airy, light and welcoming ambience.
From our base in Haywards Heath, we undertake the construction of orangeries at properties in the Ashdown Forest, East Grinstead, Horsham, Lewes and throughout the wider South East area.
When it comes to orangeries, our service includes:
If you would like to discuss options for an orangery at your property in Haywards Heath, East Grinstead, the Ashdown Forest or any of the surrounding areas, please contact us.
Here at Imperial Framing, we have brought countless orangeries to completion in line with stated deadlines and set budgets. With our depth of expertise, we ensure a smooth transition through the various stages of the project, resulting in orangeries of stunning quality.
Our clients in the Ashdown Forest, Haywards Heath, East Grinstead and throughout East and West Sussex can rely on us at every step.
To avoid any delays in the construction process, we ensure that orangery projects fully comply with UK Building Regulations and planning permission requirements from the outset.
Most orangeries fall under the classification of ‘permitted development’. In cases where they don’t, Imperial Framing undertakes submissions to the local council for the relevant planning permission on behalf of our clients.
There are numerous limitations that require planning permission, but two of the more common include:
One of the first, and most important, decisions in the entire process remains the placement of orangeries. Do you want link it with your living room to create a larger, open plan living space? Or do you want to a seamless, flowing link between a kitchen and a brand new dining area?
Naturally, the specifics of individual properties in Haywards Heath, East Grinstead, the Ashdown Forest and the neighbouring areas dictate what can and cannot be achieved. However, our team always takes the time to sit down with our clients and find ways to optimise their orangery, including the view, the available space, the amount of natural light and the appearance.
Wherever our clients decide to place their orangeries, we then move on to install the appropriate foundations for the soil conditions at the site.
Although historically utilised as a space to lengthen the citrus plant growing season, orangeries have always had roots in entertaining guests. This explains the ease with which they achieve such an impressive, yet comfortable, ambience.
These days, homeowners have a seemingly endless array of design options to truly make orangeries that suit their every need. From vaulted roofs with thermal glass to traditional oak beams, our clients have a multitude of design options for their new living space.
Our team can prioritise designs that optimise skyward views for the ultimate relaxation, those that create rustic dining areas or even those that act as an artistic refuge. With various combinations of masonry, window frames, French doors and bi-folding doors, orangeries from Imperial Framing have the versatility to suit any lifestyle.
For a complete property transformation, Imperial Framing also specialises in the construction of timber garages.
