A Lantern was the original conservatory style, Previously 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. 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.
