Custom Designed Conservatories to fit your needs.
Each unique design and specification is developed to meet any challenging conditions, attend to customer’s special needs and fulfill their aspirations. Classic proportions with existing architectural features, mouldings and details are given particular attention. We work directly with the customer or we will be happy to review your architect or designer’s schematic drawing for feasibility and budget pricing.
Oak Leaf Conservatories proudly continues the British tradition of bespoke conservatories, garden rooms and orangeries using mahogany and high performance double-glazing. Each structure is a unique design with classic proportions, finely detailed to suit individual requirements & existing architectural features.

Oak Leaf’s Unsurpassed Excellence

We believe our specification to be exceptional and unsurpassed in the marketplace.
Superior designs are infused with imagination, innovation, and meticulous attention to detail. Each Oak Leaf building is unique with individual specification developed to accommodate the customer’s specific project and their personal needs to fulfill their aspirations.

Classic proportions and empathy with existing architectural features, mouldings, and details are given particular attention. A sophisticated contemporary style can also be achieved with clean, simple yet timeless detailing.
Craftsmanship and Quality
We use the word ‘manufacture’ very loosely indeed. Each and every Oak Leaf conservatory is hand built, and hand finished. Oak Leaf’s’ extensive experience and genuine passion for detailing and building conservatories prevails in the superb designs we attain, the unsurpassed quality we demand, and the traditional skills and established techniques of York based craftsmen we rely on to execute the finest buildings our customers are proud to own.
A premium grade Mahogany species of hardwood is specified for each conservatory, orangery, and garden room. This is procured from a source that promotes and implements good forest management.
An International dimension
While the trends in design, the building requirements and other aspects may vary by location, quality and craftsmanship are the common threads in each one of our hardwood structures wherever their location in the UK, Europe or the United States.
Conservatory extensions and renovations to listed buildings in the UK must meet strict requirements. We co-ordinate consents with clients and local authorities for historically significant buildings for a smooth transition throughout the whole process to project completion. Our fine moulded glazing bar sashes with double-glazing were developed to meet demand. The designs carry a unique softness, character and warmth that is appropriate within their unique setting.
Of late the trend in Great Britain favours an airy, spacious, uncomplicated, clean, minimalist style. Oak Leaf can easily accommodate this style and create a design that will retain its ‘contemporary’ genus over the passage of time.
Prior to Oak Leaf’s expansion to the United States, the concept of the classical glass house was unknown….but that has now changed. For a significant amount of our projects in the US, newly built estate homes incorporate the latest technology for the infrastructure, but from a design standpoint maintain the refinement of classic architecture found in the historic structures throughout the UK and Europe. The conservatory is quite often ‘designed in’ to a new home or substantial renovation.
Rest assured that the logistics of importation to North America is handled flawlessly by our staff on your behalf.
A Space for all reasons
There are as many uses for a conservatory, orangery or garden room as there are endless design possibilities. Extensions to houses to increase living space could include kitchen, dining room, family room, lounge with fireplace, play room, hobby room, artist studio, music room, luxurious bath, swimming pool enclosure, cabana room, home spa, meditation room, home office, link way, gate house, and sun room to name a few. The distinction between the inside and outside becomes a blurred impression with a classical hardwood garden building used as an exotic plant room to house orchids, ferns, palms, or other greenhouse plants. Imaginative glass enclosures can be created for a use as a wedding chapel, banquet hall, storefront, kiosk, extending a restaurant or pub, or a mere folly. A glass roof, whether a curved glass domed roof, lantern roof, or cupola can serve as the crowning touch of a traditional or contemporary conservatory or used as a separate architectural element on an existing structure. Whatever the use, the glass building arises equally from the house and the landscape with its ethereal quality creating a dramatic effect day and night.
