There are many fine examples of Victorian rectories and houses around the country to be much admired, and the diversity of building style throughout this period encourages us to carry forward the same adventurous spirit in the design of our conservatories. The projects in this section highlight the diversity in design and decoration on both host buildings and our creative additions.
One of the more unusual structures ever built for a writer on architecture Lucinda Lambton, working closely with eminent architect Eric Throssel.
Window detail can be kept simple with decoration focussed on elaborate hand-carved corbel columns or striking stop chamfer pilasters. More elaborate structures can include arched window styles, deep ornate eaves with dogtooth dentils and an array of different styles of column.
Ornate cast metal cresting, finials and feature bargeboards can play a major part in defining the character of a conservatory. Our patternmaking department are often involved in creating detail that can be incorporated into ridges, eaves and within the gables.
