Glasshouse replacement at Fulham Palace Gardens

Style: 
Mono-pitch Traditional Greenhouse
Colour: 
RAL 9002 Satin
Size: 
31m x 4.7m

Alitex were asked to design a replacement aluminium greenhouse as the wooden one which had stood previously at Fulham Palace Gardens had fallen apart.

We do not undertake projects where original timber components of the greenhouse are to be retained, as this would compromise the structural integrity of our greenhouses. Therefore, the project was to be a complete replicate of the existing Victorian greenhouse.

The walled garden was to be made available to the visiting public and the intention was to have a productive reuse of the vinery and bothy. Consequently, the design needed to consider walkways and thoroughfare while creating an event space in the central lobby.

When we created a design for Fulham Palace’s walled garden, the enormous challenge for Alitex was the curve in the wall; the shape of it swings in an arc around a large grassed area. Dealing with such a sensitive site meant that many professionals were involved including Alitex engineers who ran significant testing prior to manufacture.

The finished greenhouse was a beautiful modern technological feat, with a glass roof sitting snugly up to the wall by layering the glass to follow the curve and create a seamless join.
