The Latest: New Gorgeous Glass Construction Projects on New England’s Coastline

It has been a challenging year for homeowners and businesspeople throughout the country, but the Sunspace Design team remains hard at work bringing our services to the people of New England. We design and build custom skylights, conservatories, sunrooms, greenhouses, swimming pool enclosures, and other unique glass structures of all sizes and scopes. Interest in our unique brand of custom residential and commercial glass construction remains strong as there is no better time to bring the healing beauty and warmth of natural sunlight to the living spaces we spend ample time in.

Recently we’ve had the great privilege of collaborating on two large projects in the seacoast corridor alongside fellow industry pros. Today we’re happy to offer you a special, early glimpse at these projects, both of which are sure to be absolute stunners once complete. We invite residential homeowners as well as industry professionals—from architects to general construction teams—to reach out to us in order to learn more about how our team of glass design specialists can bring the Sunspace touch to their projects.

 

Project #1 – Incredible Three-Tier Oceanfront Conservatory in Seacoast New Hampshire

This grand Hampton, NH glass construction project is a collaboration between Sunspace Design, TMS Architects and Interiors of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and Architectural Builders of Hampstead, New Hampshire (serving as general contractor). Sunspace is bringing our specialty glass design services to the project in order to realize the vision of a three-tier oceanside conservatory expansion to an existing residence, complete with cupola and glass roof. The glass conservatory space will measure 750 square feet, and the cupola above will measure 225 square feet. We’re using gorgeous mahogany framing that will be completed with copper flashing and caps. Thermal performance will be ensured via the use of insulated, tempered glass atop laminated safety glass. This glass features a low-E (low emissivity) coating and an argon gas-filled space between the panes.

Project #2 – Gorgeous Custom Conservatory and Skylight with Views of Maine’s Rocky Coast

This Cape Neddick, Maine project features both a custom conservatory as well as skylight located on the building’s third floor balcony. To complete this project we teamed with the Fiorientino Group, architects based out of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, as well as Ragusa Builders out of Seabrook, New Hampshire, who served as general contractor. The conservatory is to provide stunning views of the ocean, and features over 240 square feet of interior space. Located above the building’s foyer, the exceptional skylight will cover over 270 square feet once complete. Both the conservatory and the skylight will also be using insulated, tempered glass units with low-E and argon gas.
