Project Description

An architectural CAD drawing of two elevations of a custom family room addition and adjoining outdoor patio and deck with privacy screening

In addition to its line of beautiful custom glass products like sunrooms, conservatories, orangeries, greenhouses, and pool enclosures, Sunspace Design is also capable of meeting a client’s general construction needs. Not every project fits neatly into one of the previously mentioned categories, and we pride ourselves on having the flexibility to tailor a solution to your particular design challenges.

This client was interested in creating a family space featuring an exterior element in the form of a large deck and hot tub. The challenge was to provide screening for the deck and hot tub in a neighborhood setting and at the same time provide the high levels of natural light desired for the adjacent interior space.

To accomplish this, Sunspace utilized an open ceiling concept so as to provide a large glass area high above the floor. The introduction of this ceiling flooded light into the space and ensured that the privacy hot tub screening constructed around the deck would not negatively impact the interior light levels.

By working closely with the client at every step of the process, Sunspace achieved a design that worked well with the existing architecture of the home. Through careful planning and execution, we achieved a lovely transition to and from this beautiful and functional space. The client was left with a room to be used by the family all year, and a great environment for relaxing in the outdoors.
