The orangery originated from the gardens of Italy in the 17th century for a place for citrus trees to grow that would protect them from the harsh winter weather.
The Dutch led the way in developing the window glass in orangeries and their manuals showed solid roofs and stove heating rather than open res. This soon created a situation where orangeries became symbols of status among the wealthy.
The glazed roof, which provided sunlight to plants, was a development of the early nineteenth century. The orangery was not just a greenhouse but a symbol of prestige and wealth. The orangery was used in the same way as a summerhouse.
