Everything You Need To Know About The Loggia Conservatory


It’s eight years now since the Loggia conservatory was unveiled to the world and almost a decade on, it still leaves us in wonderment. It’s an extension design that completely breaks the mould. 

Small Loggia Conservatory

The brains behind the very first Loggia was the Italian architect, Filippo Brunelleschi, a founding father of Renaissance architecture. 

We’re sure he would love how his original creation has evolved into – a structure that remains faithful to the traditional Loggia and straddles somewhere between a conservatory and orangery. 

It combines light and sky like no other extension we’ve seen and has unparalleled rigidity due to the inclusion of solid full height or low wall corner columns. 

Magnificent to look at from the outside, it’s just as visually spectacular on the inside too, with gorgeously plastered walls and an immaculately plastered ceiling. 

Offering a remarkably low U-value and consuming far less energy than a contrasting conservatory style of a similar size, there’s no chance you’ll go cold in a Loggia, with the roof and windows providing immense insulation. 

Here’s the surprising thing – it doesn’t actually take all that long to build a Loggia conservatory. 

We can usually construct a Loggia quicker than most brick-built conservatories and orangeries. 

You are allowed to customise the design, however you like. For instance, you may fancy including vertical sliding sash windows, rather than just one of the usual conventional window offerings. There is also an internal pelmet in which you can fix spotlights and downlighters so that you have the ability to illuminate the interior at night. Speakers can also sit in there if you want some soothing sounds filling your ears while you chill out inside. Oh, and what about a cornice? This will give it added style and create a feeling of loftiness, in terms of the roof. 

From our experience, we can tell you that most Loggia conservatories don’t require planning permission or building regulations approval, but we can get that clarified with your local authority first, if you are interested in buying one. 

The Loggia conservatory has its own dedicated section on the Planet website, which you can view here and find out more about this incredibly exciting extension.
