A Dormer Conservatory in Martha’s Vineyard, MA

by | Jun 13, 2023 | Construction

Today we’re taking a look at a custom glass dormer conservatory designed and constructed for clients located in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. To complete this project, Sunspace Design teamed up with Joseph K. Dick of Yarmouth Port, MA, who served as the principal architect, as well as Martha’s Vineyard Construction Company (MVCC) out of Martha’s Vineyard, who served as the general contractor. The project called for a custom glazing system and a center glass dormer to be situated on the contractor’s timber frame construction. The gorgeous glass roof has two valleys. A custom color flashing system was utilized to complete the look. Sunspace Design spearheaded the glass construction on the project by providing the design and manufacture of the glazing system, as well as the field installation of the high-performance insulated glass. Let’s explore the build one photo at a time.
