A Victorian Glasshouse Designed by Jane McCorkell

Bespoke Glasshouse
Wood Sage (RAL 7032)

Having used Alitex in the past, Jane McCorkell knew that we could provide the best glasshouse for her clients, who had just began their garden design project. They wanted a structure that would allow them to experiment with growing whilst also being a space for sitting and enjoying their dinner throughout the year. 

The glasshouse is fixed at the gable end to keep all the built elements aligned and in keeping with the arrangement of the historic farm buildings. The design is taller than usual to imitate the pitch of the garage, which also gives it this amazing grand presence without being obtrusive.

They chose Wood Sage to help the structure blend into the surrounding landscapes and adjoining buildings, perfect for blending the indoor outdoor barrier.

Amidst a few herbs, tomatoes and strawberry plants is their pride and joy, their lemon tree. The clients take their dinner to the glasshouse most days, to enjoy the outdoors without being exposed to the elements.

The clients are enthusiastic and appreciative of nature. They prefer simplicity when it comes to the garden, and their gardener tends to the grounds with a natural approach. Jane has designed a beautiful garden that provides a calming and uncomplicated space to transport the client’s minds from their busy lifestyle.
