Conservatories

Conservatory in Co. Durham

This conservatory added to a listed Georgian house makes an excellent place for summer living and entertaining, and enjoys panoramic views over an extensive garden and river valley. It occupies the site of an old glass house and evokes the design of early nineteenth century garden buildings. The bold semi-circular plan (in fact a semi-tetradecagon!) disguises the fact that the new building had to be positioned at an angle to the old house. The windows frames are all timber, and are placed between slim columns of natural stone.
