Lantern Conservatories in High Wycombe
Lantern conservatory style
The Lantern conservatory style is the original conservatory style, though in those days they were known as orangeries.
This style of conservatory makes a profound statement of elegance, style and grandeur. Our High Wycombe Lantern conservatories offer a two-tier conservatory roof on different levels, which produces a grand 'wedding-cake' effect. The different levels are separated by a row of stylish windows that makes these conservatories ideal for period properties, particularly with a Victorian and Edwardian vintage.

The lantern conservatory offers a style that is often used for indoor swimming pools, orangeries or larger conservatories. lantern conservatories are traditionally made from Whether from brick and stone or in a classic glass style, and they never fail to bring back the feeling of opulent living from an altogether different age.
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. This is especially useful when a conservatory is south facing or where condensation might pose a problem. For specific advice on this, please talk to our experts..
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.
When you order your lantern conservatory, you might also consider adding coloured or stained glass in the vertical panels. This enhances the Victorian or Edwardian period effect.
A popular lantern conservatory style option is extra brickwork – perhaps a three-quarter or full-height wall on one side to tie the conservatory in even more with the property. Whatever you choose, lantern conservatories are a grand and majestic option for larger houses and never fail to impress your friends.
The lantern conservatory style dates back to the 19th century when the Victorian gentry enjoyed the height and atrium effect. That's why you can see Victorian lantern conservatories at many stately homes and even at Kew Gardens.
