Unique & trend setting conservatories
Client and designer partnerships often inspire the most creative solutions – exemplified by Philip Whear Windows & Conservatories’ truly bespoke installations. An open approach to consultation over 30 years has inspired some interesting and clever trends in conservatory design.
One such trend has become known as a “Reverse Lean-To” conservatory – characterised by a single pitched roof sloping up, away from the adjoining property.

Company Director & Designer, Philip Whear recalls its inception – “Back in 2003 I visited a lady in Perranwell for a consultation. I was immediately struck by her home’s unique contemporary style – it was like walking into an art gallery. Our design had to be as unique as her taste. So, after talking through many options we ended up with our first ever ‘Reverse Lean-To’ conservatory – and the first to my knowledge in Cornwall.”
Contemporary in style, the Reverse Lean-To design is very functional – particularly on a bungalow where the eaves height is an issue. It provides ample room height for a light and airy feel.
On a Reverse Lean-To conservatory completed in 2015 – happy customers, Mr & Mrs Merchant from Hayle commented – “We didn’t want to waste what would be a one-off opportunity to greatly enhance our home. We needed to get it right first time, without the faintest idea of how to go about it. Luckily we found yourselves and you did indeed get it right first time and you have greatly enhanced our home. Everyone that has seen it has been impressed and commented on it – you have created an excellent space for us from our initial ideas.”

Philip Whear Windows & Conservatories are equally adept with traditionally inspired styles and materials. A Caron Downs couple requested a classically styled conservatory with as near to zero maintenance as possible, so green oak was specified. However, untypically of green oak construction, the roof was glazed instead of conventional slate.
Other unique conservatory installations have included double storey, asymmetric, two colour and traditionally styled orangeries performing to modern standards.
