Anchoring an Orangery into the Garden.

Try taking a Grade II listed house in Gloucestershire and adding a beautiful David Salisbury Orangery… not only will part of a much loved, established garden need to be demolished, but the focus of the family’s use will shift, gravitating naturally towards the light and airy extension.

Any outward extension of a property is going to impact the garden – less space, changed footprint, different access points – but of all the extensions, an Orangery is one of the hardest to pull off successfully. They are beautiful structures but being largely glazed, cloaking them in climbers is not an option. As such, there is always a risk that they appear bolted on, an after-thought. However, it doesn’t have to be this way…

The Orangery itself carries through the colour of all the house windows, and is complimentary in proportion and style. The tiled floor inside runs through to a similarly scaled terrace outside, wrapped in sun-loving lavenders. Low Cotswold stone walls hold back the ground level, giving the Orangery space to breath, and an HSP Summerhouse provides a strong vista line, drawing one out into the garden where the new borders merge seamlessly with the old.
