A Conservatory in North Hampton
What goes into a construction project? How does a company like Sunspace Design transform a residence with one of their custom glass additions? Every project we undertake requires unique solutions to unique problems. That’s because every home is different, and every project is driven by a client’s specific goals.
We explore these unique projects from start to finish in the Sunspace Design construction showcase series. This article collection explores the planning, design, engineering, and construction of custom glass projects like greenhouses, conservatories, glass roof systems, and swimming pool enclosures we’ve introduced to residences and commercial spaces throughout seacoast New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts.
Today we’re looking at a gorgeous conservatory office built by our hardworking crew in North Hampton, New Hampshire. The owner of the residence reached out to Sunspace Design in hopes of replacing a leaky, aging sunroom with a crumbling fieldstone foundation. What to replace it with? A stunning glass conservatory designed to match the home’s existing architecture.
The owner now uses the structure as a tranquil office space that provides a stunning view of the surrounding outdoor environment. The space features a solid mahogany frame, copper flashing, Marvin Integrity window units, and a glass roof system outfitted with Solar Ban 70 XL high performance glass. You can learn more about this project by visiting its entry in our portfolio. For now, let’s explore what went into the project’s construction!
