Project Description

An architectural CAD drawing of a year-round glass addition with a complex glass roof system

Deep in the historic district of Salem, Massachusetts, our design-build team worked to create a beautiful conservatory glass roof system to bring light, beauty, and functionality to our client. The end result is a custom glass roof lantern crowning a freshly constructed year-round addition which compliments an already extraordinary home.

The space was designed to accommodate dual-purpose usage; the homeowner enjoys light gardening in one portion of the conservatory and morning coffee in the other. We strategically placed a glass partition and door to enable independent climate controls for the greenhouse and den. Incredible moldings and copper work coupled with a custom Marvin door and window package dress the vertical walls while a custom open lantern glass roof provides an amazing view from the interior.

Sunspace Design glass roof lanterns are constructed with solid mahogany components and concealed steel designed to withstand the powerful elements characteristic of New England weather. The comfort and shelter created through our rigid engineering gives our clients the freedom to relax in the natural light—and in this case appreciate a horticultural hobby—for all four seasons. We warmly invite you to incorporate a glass roof into your upcoming project so that you and your family can harvest year-round sunshine as well.
