The Lorimer orangerie.

The word ‘orangerie’ dates from the 17th century when special rooms were built onto grand houses for growing fruit such as oranges. Today, an orangerie is the perfect balance between an extended room and a conservatory.

A contemporary new twist.

The epitome of modern living, an orangerie gives a more room-like feel to the space and allows you to effortlessly incorporate contemporary design features such as speakers and down-lighters.

However, these beautifully designed living spaces still give you all the spectacular natural light of a traditional conservatory.

Exclusive Lorimer orangerie features.

Aluminium roof with SmartGlass

Aluminium roof with SmartGlass

Every CR Smith orangerie includes an extruded aluminium clad roof which is finished with uPVC on the inside to match the windows. Its engineered construction means the roof is fully built and tested prior to installation which carries British Board of Agrément accreditation. The aluminium design means it will remain colour-fast and gives it additional rigidity and strength, unlike uPVC roofs. Each roof has a unique wind and snow loading specification, computer calculated prior to manufacture.

The roof features Smartglass which has a clever dual-action coating to the outside which helps keep the roof cleaner for longer and a special surface on the inside which retains heat and reduces glare.

Climate Control

Our climate control system allows you to regulate the temperature in your orangerie. It will heat or cool, dehumidify and purify the air at the touch of a button or set timer. We believe it is the perfect way to control the climate and get the most out of your orangerie.
