With the original 1906 Benzoline – based gas – generator lighthouse had become a little worse for wear many years ago. The owners of this period home had an ambition – to reconstruct the garden pavilion and retain many of the original features that had been saved. The new chimney forms the same footprint as the original, the flue is 150 mm stainless steel pipe inside the white tower, and is located in the same position. The old Benzoline gas tank that had been saved from underneath the dilapidated building structure now sits proudly in the original positioning adjacent to the tower structure, offering a visual display of historical features and modern architecture in the one viewing. Whilst visiting the Tamarleigh Garden Pavilion, captured by the beautiful surrounding gardens, one can certainly enjoy the feeling of a harmonic interaction of old and new.
