Are you in the market for a dining room skylight or a living room glass roof to flood your interior with natural light? Are you a gardener or hobbyist seeking a glass space like a sunroom, orangery, or greenhouse for your plants to thrive in? Sunspace can handle glass design projects of any scope or scale without sacrificing quality or attention to detail. Your home’s existing design and your personal goals will both influence your project requirements. By partnering with a design-build firm like Sunspace Design, you’ll benefit from the assurance over thirty-five years of experience can provide. The hundreds of elegant glass structures we’ve introduced to New England are testament to the strength of our craftsmanship and reputation.
To illustrate what goes into a typical construction project, we’re proud to present our construction showcase series. Today’s entry marks the fourth article in this series. We’ll be exploring a visually stunning glass conservatory built for homeowners in Rye, New Hampshire. The conservatory design features dramatic angles, large spans of glass in the roof, exterior copper flashing, an open concept, and a solid mahogany frame. The space’s vaulted ceiling allows maximum levels of natural light to enter the dining, kitchen, and entertainment areas below. The glass roof features argon-filled, low-e glass (PPG Solar Ban 70 XL). The windows are Marvin casements outfitted with Marvin’s high performance glass. Let’s take a closer look below.
As always, we begin with a series of carefully-drawn structural elevations.
These views establish the design and silhouette of the structure relative to the existing property.

When it’s feasible, in-shop development saves time and money.
It’s one of the ways that Sunspace Design can offer the industry’s top quality at accessible prices.

This project was a real joy to work on and we were eager to add the finished results to our portfolio of completed projects. The glass roof we installed meshes perfectly with the existing exterior sloped roof and interior sloped ceiling. The concealed steel ridge we anchored to a structural beam at the rear enabled us to bring the ridge into that slope. The resulting implementation allows stunning levels of sunlight to enter the client’s home.
