The Orangery, Kensington Palace

Liam O’Connor Architects was appointed by Historic Royal Palaces to design a new building at Kensington Palace to provide state of the art historic textile conservation facilities as well as new support space for palace functions including new kitchens serving the historic grade 1 listed and Scheduled Ancient Monument orangery, a work by Wren, Hawksmoor and Vanbrugh, England’s most important eighteenth century architects.

The new north façade is composed with large blind niches in rubbed brickwork and Portland stone, set out to align with the axes of the paths known to exist to the north of the orangery in what was known as the ‘wilderness garden’ set out by Charles Bridgeman, but now lost.
