Here Comes the Sun: Light-filled Conservatories & Greenhouses

Custom conservatory

This time of year, we’re all longing to see more of the sun. With that in mind, we're pleased to present some visual Vitamin D, and a look at resplendent conservatories and greenhouses. These sun-splashed structures are immediate mood-lifters and prized home features. They also celebrate the beauty of their natural surroundings while providing shelter from the cold. 

High-end farm-house style greenhouse

A greenhouse is a part of the verdant—and spectacular—design of a working mid-country working French farm designed by Charles Hilton Architects. Abutting the large formal vegetable gardens and orchards, the greenhouse allows the homeowners to garden virtually year-round.

This garden pavilion, designed by Bereznicki Architects, is the jewel of a romantic English park. Homeowners can experience the beauty of the grounds from within a glorious structure designed with French doors at every turn and skylights overhead.

This seaside estate, constructed by Kistler and Knapp Builders, Inc., was made for entertaining. A conservatory, with its interesting peaked design, provides a stunning space for parties and overlooks the site’s rolling grounds.

When Kirby Perkins Construction lifted and renovated a barn on the banks of the Sakonnet River to create a garage and artist studio, the firm added a new greenhouse to the shingled structure. There, residents raise plants from seedlings before planting them in the garden.
