If you are planning on expanding your home with an Orangery that features a mixture of hardwoods, stone and masonry there are a number of factors you need
Glass coupled with traditional stone can produce a stunning aesthetic. Hampton Conservatories have created many structures using a blend of masonry & stone that is local to the area in which the project is located, thereby establishing a sense of place and ensuring that the structure blend with the vernacular architecture. This ensures that the building reflects the environmental, cultural, technological, economic, and historical context in which it exists.
When designing a luxury Orangery or Conservatory using materials like stone, brick and masonry the end result can be vastly different depending on the way the materials are applied to your project.
With Conservatories and Orangeries that need to be added to a listed building, you may have a more limited choice of the materials that you can use as these glass structures have to blend into the original building to increase chances of listed consent being granted.
Orangeries and conservatories being added to non-listed properties can utilize a wider variety of materials into its design. Getting the right choice and balance of these materials can be key in making sure that you end up with the glass extension you want.
It's always good to contact an orangery designer that has plenty of experience working with stone and masonry projects. Hamptons have vast experience in dealing with these projects that allow us to help you come up with a bespoke orangery with the perfect blend of glass, wood and stone work.
