Client Warwick District Council

Located in the listed setting of Jephson Gardens, the new Temperate House and Restaurant was part of a major regeneration scheme. The riverside building, which hovers over the River Leam and offers panoramic views across the gardens, is constructed of structural glass fixed to a light steel frame. This ‘glass house’ provides a temperate climate for a myriad of plant types, sandwiched between a two-storey exhibition foyer and a 120-seat restaurant. Civic Trust Commendation 2005.
