This week sees our work at the Temperate House, Kew Gardens, conclude with great fanfare as the Grade I listed glasshouse – the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world – opens its doors for the first time in five years after a major restoration programme. Project Associate Aimée Felton (pictured, far right), gave an architecture tour to keen viewers during the press view.
