The Lantern conservatory style was the original conservatory style when they were known as orangeries. For those with the right budget, a lantern conservatory style makes a fantastic statement of grandeur and elegance.
Lantern conservatories feature a two-tier conservatory roof on different levels, creating a ‘wedding-cake’ effect. The two levels are separated by a row of windows that is highly stylish and makes this style ideal for period properties of Victorian and Edwardian vintage, where relatively plain conservatories might not match the grandeur of the existing building.
The lantern conservatory is a style that is often chosen to house swimming pools, orangeries or for larger conservatories. The one seen in the photograph is used as a communal lounge at retirement residence in Pewsey, Wiltshire. Whether your lantern conservatory comes in brick and stone or classic glass style, it never fails to conjure up the glories of opulent living from an altogether different age.
With lantern conservatories, the overall impression is of height, light and grandeur. A lantern conservatory is spacious and offers an uninterrupted view of the sky. With a two-tiered roofing structure, you get to use more windows, which means that more ventilation is available.
While the two-tiered design of lantern conservatories is undeniably spectacular and the second tier of windows adds ventilation, their sheer height means they will likely need to be electrically operated, which of course simply adds to the sense of style and sophistication.
Combining your latern style conservatory with the latest high insulation self cleaning glass in a subtle blue tint can create a stunning effect to a flat roof. See our web page Roof Glazing Options for further details.
