Conservatories General


19th C drawing

Conservatories, when first designed in the 17th century, were intended to conserve exotic plant species in northern European climates. The earliest buildings were used simply to keep the frost from plants so that they would survive the winter until they could be grown again outdoors in spring.

The fantastic ambience soon saw them move into an elegant link between the house and garden, they were often a grand affair, built with a classical style, many incorporating stone columns, tall, semi-circular sash windows and positioned to enable imposing views over the surrounding estate parklands or rural countryside. The interiors had stone floors, and in the summer months were furnished with a large grand table and chairs to provide a beautiful setting for meals and entertaining.

 Because of modern manufacturing techniques, conservatories are now a versatile, affordable, and easy way to increase living space and add beauty and charm to any style of home.

"We love our conservatory ... it's so relaxing ... we spend more time in this room than any other ... I don't know why we have the rest of the house."

Conservatories are not acquired simply as room additions but as enhancements to lifestyle. Our clients are often seeking an escape from the pressures of every day life; they find the conservatory, a space filled with light and surrounded by garden, a soothing reward for their hard work.

The real beauty of a conservatory is that it is a room, which is part home, part garden. On a summer's day with the doors open and the heady smell of flowers in the air, the conservatory is simply an extension of the garden. On less clement days it is a cosy and comfortable haven in which to enjoy the outdoors whilst the wind and rain are firmly excluded.
