An Atrium Glass Roof in Brookline, MA

by | Sep 1, 2023 | Construction

Today we’re pleased to introduce a project we’ve been working on for clients located in Brookline, Massachusetts. Our talented team set out to create a custom atrium glass roof to grace the entry of our client’s newly renovated home. Spanning an impressive 10′ x 13′, the custom glass roof we provided stands as a testament to the harmonious fusion of design, engineering, and construction our company is known for.

To complete this project, we worked with Colin Smith Architecture, based in Lexington, as well as Kenneth Vona and Son Construction, a general contractor located in Natick. Sunspace Design contributed by providing the design, manufacturing, and field installation of the roof system. Components were developed in the controlled environment of our workshop and carefully transported to the job site to minimize build times. Let’s take a closer look at the build process.
