UPVC Regency

Regency conservatories come in several varied styles, just like the architecture from which they take their names. The Regency period in art and architecture lasted from 1811 to 1830 during the regency and then reign of George IV. It was a time of changes and renewal in furniture and architecture alike. Many of the architects of the time, such as John Nash, court architect who constructed the Royal Pavilion at Brighton, showed the exotic influences of Indian, Gothic, Egyptian, Asian and other foreign art and architectural inspiration. Their fascinating buildings were filled with striking and bizarre furniture and vividly colourful furnishings from strange lands.

However, the overwhelming look of the period was an elegant, grand neoclassical style. Regency neoclassic architecture is characterized by simple proportions with strong, straight lines inspired by the Greek and Roman lines of classical architecture.  The Regency era buildings had combinations of clean, orderly, upright lines with carefully balanced curves in perfect proportions to the size and scale of the buildings. Curved bow windows were popular. Tall, thin windows, with few or no glazing bars, often extending all the way to the ground, were used to create the illusion of columns and verticality. The carefully proportioned round heads of the doors and windows repeat the look of classical arches. The lines of the structure itself create interest and beauty so little or no extra decoration is needed or added.

Balconies became popular during the Regency period and were used something like regency conservatories would be used today. Like a balcony, a conservatory is a bonus space open to sunshine. A perfect spot to idle away an afternoon with a good book, or enjoy the sunrise at breakfast. Unlike Regency era balconies, Regency style conservatories have the advantage of being enclosed in glass and ready for use during any season. They can also be added to your building after construction of the main structure.
