Hard-working greenhouses that don't look it.
Smaller lots mean that a greenhouse or lathhouse will be highly visible. But who says that a greenhouse has to look like a stark glass box? In these three cases, the owners decided to give their garden structures architectural style without sacrificing function or workspace. The three buildings are all quite visible, but each blends into its surroundings discreetly. Each lies a few steps from the main house. The one you see above stands in a front courtyard; the others are in narrow rear gardens. The two greenhouses are freestanding, while lathhouse (below) is attached to one end of a separate garage.
