The History of Victorian Conservatories

Queen Victoria reigned from 1837 until 1901, and with such a long reign the Victorian architecture period actually covers a range of styles. Generally, architecture of this period borrowed many of its features from a mixture of historic styles along with Middle-Eastern and Asian influences. The start of the Victorian era roughly coincided with the production in the UK of cylinder blown sheet glass in 1832. This was a manufacturing method which allowed the production of sheets of glass which were larger and of better quality than those produced with previous methods. Glass manufacturing was further advanced in 1848 with the cast plate method of production which again increased size and quality whilst lowering the cost of glass.

The repeal of a glass tax in the UK in 1845 along with technical advances which made steel viable as a building material led to the construction of The Crystal Palace in London during the Great Exhibition of 1851. The Crystal palace was the largest glass building that had ever been produced at the time, and astonished visitors with its clear walls and ceilings and impressive size. It was this incredible building which kick-started the trend for glass architecture in public, horticultural and domestic buildings.

A Victorian style conservatory may feature design elements like gothic arched glazing bars, decorative roof crestings and finials, intricately leaded glass, large decorative pillars or other architectural flourishes. There is no set layout for a Victorian conservatory, however one of the things which gained popularity in this era was angled bay windows – a window which protrudes to the outside of a building with three sections of window at 45 degree angles to one another to create extra internal space and natural lighting. This design carries over to what may commonly be thought of as a Victorian style conservatory today – the front of the building has this same “bay style” layout with 45 degree angled frames, and a roof which follows the same shape, with hips and rafters meeting at a central point and adjoining a common ridge.

This design feature may be on the end of a simple, largely rectangular structure, or it may be incorporated into a more complicated design. Almost any shape is possible, including “U” shaped and “X” shaped buildings with Victorian bay frontages, but more commonly seen are “P” and “T” shaped buildings where the main body of a conservatory is of a “Lean-to” design adjoining a house wall, with a further protruding section at one end or in the centre of the building.
