An architecture student from Dagenham could become a garden household name after winning an international competition to design the conservatory of the future.
James Furzer, 25, of Hardie Road, could now see his design become a reality after claiming the top prize with his futuristic entry in the contest organised by industry experts David Salisbury.
Part of the design team behind award-winning Watering Holes, currently situated across the capital’s eight royal parks, the former Eastbrook secondary school pupil was delighted by the achievement.
He said: “I wanted to create a modern, exciting structure that blurred the boundaries between internal and external spaces.
“My entire design is based on its “buildability” and flexibility.

“The brief highlighted that if a suitable project arose then the winning scheme may be proposed to potential clients. It would be fantastic for my design to actually be built by David Salisbury.”
His design included a steel and wooden canopy area, interlinked with contemporary glass modules.
