A Glass Conservatory

October 09, 2009

This conservatory by Helen & Hard is a very interesting structure. Built to replace an outbuilding that had previously stood in that location 120 years ago, this glass structure is adjacent to an existing log structure. Colored glass beams support the glass roof above, while hinged stone walls open the view to the park beyond. I think what makes this project really lovely are the surprises... glass unexpectedly being the solid support system, and the movable stone acting as a system of transparency...
