Originally conceived as a place to collect and maintain exotic plants, this glass conservatory has blossomed into an elegant social setting, ideal for an intimate supper or sunny Sunday brunch.
Glass Conservatory Sunroom
At Tanglewood, we believe landscape, conservatory, and home should listen to one another. This particular conservatory design was selected by our clients from among several that were presented during Tanglewood’s well-structured Design Development process.
The Design Development process involves working together to clearly define important aspects of the project then allowing our designers to use their architectural creativity and sense of proportion to “put the pieces together”.
The resulting designs often incorporate interesting or special details from adjacent architecture. If done well, the result will be a playful and easy unity of the old with the new.
The design of this glass conservatory sunroom involves the use of a curved main facade and curved window heads – all conceived to gently echo the shapes from the home’s unique front entry. Even the inset pattern in the pilasters makes use of this subtle shape.
Sometimes, our conservatory design and work will involve the exact replication of existing parts or pieces from the home. That way, the conservatory will mesh perfectly with its surroundings.
The table base was made from steel supports salvaged from an old greenhouse that formerly stood at the same location!
