About the project

We have applied top-notch bearing structure and customized glazing system solutions for the private conservatory. It is really hard to grow tropical plants in northern areas due to constantly varying weather conditions – very uneven sunlight exposure, lots of snow, temperature changes from -20°C up to +30°C throughout the year. As the location of the conservatory is next to public spaces, privacy issue had to be solved without losing the critical features of the glass:

    • High energy efficiency
    • Moisture control and to avoid condensation
    • Sun control for the best microclimate to grow tropical plants
    • Snow Melting function – heated glass
    • Glass reflection for the privacy
    • 17 automatic openable triangle-shaped windows
