Spanish conservatories are traditionally constructed with fewer windows than their English counterparts. This style puts a greater emphasis on the walls themselves, which are made from masonry or plaster, a common theme in Spanish architecture.
A Spanish conservatory‘s roof generally consists of clay tiles, accented by a skylight, which brings daylight into the building. Other common features include Palladian arches in the windows and a color scheme consisting of rich browns, golds, burgundies, and other earth tones. This color scheme is carried throughout the interior with traditional adornments.
When used for growing, Spanish conservatories usually contain tropical plants and water features.
