Orangery Design with Flat Roof

Gross Pointe Farms, Michigan

In orangery design, a molded interior soffit conceals sloped box gutters and provides a convenient location for delicate accent lights and discrete air-conditioning outlets. This elegant dining room orangery resides in a once seldom used courtyard. The flat top of the central skylight (lantern) roof allows unobstructed views from the second floor. Orangery designs are excellent for difficult attachments to host buildings.
