South Conservatory Restoration Completed

By Phipps Conservatory

When you visit this weekend for the opening of Fall Flower Show and Garden Railroad, you'll also be among the first to see our newly renovated South Conservatory! The room hasn't looked this stunning in over a century, with brand new glass panes and extensive restoration by Renovation Services, Inc. of original design features unseen since the 1960s. Check out the before-and-after photos below for a sneak peek:

Wow! It looks fabulous.  I can’t wait to see it in person.

Go Team Phipps! Does everyone get to wear shades to work now?

Wow!!  That is truly a work of art and those aerial shots are amazing.  Keep up the good work.

What a difference!. I wonder what the effects of the increased thermal load are: faster growth times, quicker blooming, larger fruits?  Will the banana tree breach the roof?
