Keith Richards Conservatory
30 November 2012
With the Rolling Stones recent fiftieth anniversary and all the publicity, I thought it worth sharing these pictures of Keith Richard’s Conservatory at his property in Connecticut USA. I especially enjoyed the documentary devoted specifically to Keith Richards and his central contribution to the success of the band.
It was a challenging project taken on by Parish Conservatories (see earlier blog entry re Storm Sandy). We manufactured and supplied all the components of the superstructure: timber, glass etc - flat packed, and sent it to Connecticut by container to be installed by Parish. It was an unusual design, with multiple complexity including feature lantern with unusual geometry and roof design. Unusually for the UK but not the Us this conservatory has a stone built fireplace and chimney.
I took these pictures when I was visiting about four years ago - shortly after the building was erected, and in case you wondering I didn’t meet the man himself!
