So what is a glass house? Traditionally a glass house, or a conservatory, was a free-standing structure used by the Victorians to house prized plants during the winter months. However, as time progressed, these glass houses became and architectural feature of properties, and they began to be used for residential purposes rather than horticultural.

Today, glass houses are more commonly known as conservatories, and come in all shapes and sizes, such as:

  • Lean-to conservatories,
  • Reverse lean-to conservatories,
  • Link conservatories,
  • Infill conservatories and,
  • Atriums.

The style and size of glass houses will vary according to the property they complement, and they can still be built as free-standing structures for either residential or horticultural purposes, resembling extremely grand greenhouses.

Apropos’ glass houses are bespoke in their design, and take the aspirations of the individual client as a starting point in any design. The glass houses created by Apropos are built to match the desires of clients, and are purpose built and specific to each individual circumstance.
