A distinctive look with classic appeal
The first ‘Lantern’ conservatory was designed in the nineteenth century to create a distinctive room, unique in its height and atrium effect. Victorian Lantern conservatory designs can be seen at Kew Gardens and some notable stately homes.
The spacious two-tiered effect of this style makes it a favourite choice for pool enclosures and orangeries, whether in brick and stone or the classic glass style. Wherever it is used, it conveys an atmosphere of grandeur from bygone days.
A lantern conservatory is also a practical solution where extra ventilation is required, especially in south-facing locations and where condensation from a kitchen may otherwise cause a problem.
