For the larger conservatory or orangery, the design may require the rood structure to be segmented and supported by internal columns. They can create an interesting architectural feature as well as being functional by housing downpipes for the removal of rainwater.
Designing around an internal portal frame is another option if support columns are not appropriate.
Above shows an orangery on a hotel restaurant measuring 7.5m x 17m.
The roof structure is formed with a series of connecting gables. Folding doors allow the whole to open out onto the terrace in the summer months.
