THE ORANGERY - The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew:

London 1761

The Orangery was designed by Sir William Chambers and completed in 1761. (He later went on to design many great buildings, including Somerset House, which we have also modelled). It is the largest classical style building in the gardens and was once the largest glass house in England! As its name suggests, The Orangery was designed to house orange trees, but alas, mainly due to poor light levels, it was never a success. The building has been used for many purposes in its life and since its latest restoration in 2002 it is now the setting for an elegant café-restaurant. The model is made of plaster and the detail shows Princess Augusta's coat of arms over the central bay of the facade, along with the Royal Arms and escutcheons with the monogram 'A' in honour of Queen Adelaide, wife of William IV.
