Overview Tanglewood Conservatories, Ltd/ custom designs and builds authentic residential and commercial conservatories, combining the romanticism of 19th Century glass architecture with state-of-the-art technology and master craftsmanship.
Background Established in the 1990’s, Tanglewood Conservatories is one of only a handful of conservatory builders in the U.S. In the past 5 years, the firm has doubled in size. Using only top-grade materials, the conservatories are pre-built at Tanglewood’s shop and shipped to customers’ homes for installation.
Location Executive offices and 40,000-square-foot workshop located in the town of Denton on Maryland’s Eastern Shore
Recent Project Examples Pool Enclosure (California) – The client asked us to design and build this pool enclosure based on the Syon Park Conservatory in London.

Greenhouse and Conservatory (New York) – We charmed the homeowner with the exquisite and thoroughly unique greenhouse design. This project was a particularly challenging room to manufacture and included the architectural design element of glass “eyebrows” in the lower roof.

Greenhouse (Utah) – This elegant backyard greenhouse has a steeply pitched, copper roof and trim made from simple cedar boards that match the main house.

Skylight (New York) – We created a distinctive copper clad skylight, bringing warm sunlight into a previously dark kitchen space.

Gazebo and Conservatory (Texas) – The homeowners originally started working with a design professional over seven years ago and were continually unhappy with all the designs presented and with the thought of working with a conservatory company based outside the U.S. They turned to us and found exactly what they were looking for in both a gazebo and conservatory for their home.

Conservatory and Greenhouse (South Carolina) – This project merged three entire structures all with different functions. The conservatory is used as an open space to entertain extended family and friends. Plants fill the functioning greenhouse. The beautiful glass rotunda provides a special room for family to gather.

Orangerie (African continent) – This free-standing, solid-roof structure encompasses over 1,000 square feet and has stained glass features and eight pairs of French doors with European cremones.

Employees/Projects 30 employees produce 20 to 25 conservatories each year
