When it comes to designing a luxury orangery or conservatory to be added to a listed building, the subtle differences between the 2 types of glass extension could potentially be the difference between getting the required consents.
An example could be that a client would like to add a glazed extension to a 17th century Castle. They may opt to go for an orangery over a conservatory as an orangery tends to use more brick and mortar sections, allowing the orangery to blend more seamlessly to the ascetics of the original property.
It's always good to contact an experienced conservatory designer that has specialised in dealing with listed buildings at the earliest possible point.

Arguably the most vital issue when it comes to drafting a proposal for an orangery to be added to your listed building is the impact it will have on the original property. To improve your chances of getting the consent for your project you need to design an orangery that doesn't overshadow the historical building.
When planning a proposal for listed building consent it's important to have contacted an orangery manufacturer that has vast experience in similar projects to your own. To increase your chances of getting approval you need to design an orangery that is sympathetic to the original structure that blends in naturally to the overall aesthetic of the listed building.
Although every listed consent application is judged on its own merits, planners tend to be more favourable to orangeries that do not dominate the original property or upset the balance of the properties grounds.
