The DIY Orangery concept is fairly new compared to the DIY Conservatory industry. Traditionally the Orangery was only build by the wealthy and had to be installed by skilled craftsmen. The glass lantern was supported by a deep bulk head that was comprised of deep laminated beams that could span the distance required and structurally support the heavy glass roof.

With the introduction of the Cappella DIY Orangery system it islarge Georgian Capella now possible for any competent DIYer to install their own modern version of an orangery. Using the K2 Konnect system the orangery frames are install without having to screw them together and to make life easier, the frames arrive fully glazed. The frames are placed into a prerouted cill and then join by using an aluminium plate connector and quarter turn buttons. The orangery is supplied with an instruction manual and installation DVD.


The enhancements the Cappella system brings to the structure is this deep, structural aluminium gutter that hides the bottom of the glazing bars and the glass. So when viewed from the outside the conservatory becomes an orangery. Internally, brackets support a soffit (either 170 mm or 317 mm wide) that hide the ring beam and give the impression of a traditional bulk head. The soffit allows the inclusion of down lighters or speakers to make the orangery a unique and novel experience. Low voltage strip lighting can be concealed on top of the soffit to create some very interesting mood lighting.


ScreenHunter_6796 Oct. 17 11.35The Capella DIY Orangery system comes in two roof Capella Orangery styles,  the Georgian and Edwardian. The hipped back Edwardian model includes a  structural aluminum box gutter that is attached to the house wall, or soffit if it’s a bungalow, to support the roof. All of the usual conservatory upgrades can be applied to the orangery.



For high performing roof glazing, the glass can be treated ScreenHunter_6797 Oct. 17 11.38 with Celsius Elite which reduces  heat gain, is easi-clean and has fantastic heat retention properties, U-value of 0.9. The wall glazing can be treated with Celsius Clear to give it similar properties to the roof glazing without the tint. To create a more traditional look to your orangery Georgian bar can be added to the wall glazing sealed units.

This design allows for the use of the ultimate in contemporary orangery design technology. This option can include aluminium support legs that allow the use of brickwork, framework or large span bi-fold doors, in the knowledge that they do not support the roof. The Venetian orangery style uses the same ‘warm’ roof system as the Integra, thus meeting the required building regulation requirements.
