10 Stunning Greenhouse Conservatories Around the World

by DeVore Design, August 19, 2016
Found in magnificent gardens around the world, glass conservatories are both practical and beautiful. Though the words conservatory and greenhouse are often used interchangeably, greenhouses are simple structures that function mainly to grow delicate plants and fruit trees. A greenhouse conservatory, on the other hand, combines form and function. Here, plants are nurtured and protected while housed in a lovely glass structure that is also a space for entertaining, dining, or relaxing. Useful all year round, the building can give refuge to outdoor plants and trees during the winter months, providing warmth and access to natural sunlight. Some of the most recognizable greenhouse conservatories are reproductions of 19th-century structures, crafted with modern, energy-efficient materials. Here, we’ve rounded up ten gorgeous conservatories around the world. They are architectural wonders that may inspire you to have one of your own.
