When academic success does not equal economic success, then what?

Statistics show that the underprivileged and undereducated are often lost in poverty, making choices for survival that render them less than successful. There are also stories of those who have achieved educational goals, only to find that their success in education may not equate to economic success. So, does THAT education matter? Education does matter; but, not education for education’s sake. Then, is it possible to acquire economic success without a college degree? Emphatically, yes! It is possible to be successful with AND without a college degree. However, we must encourage our young workforce to follow a mapped path that focusses their educational journey toward an achievable destination that fulfills their personal and economic goals.

Tanglewood Conservatories and Untangled Minds, Inc. recognizes the challenges students face as they consider steps toward their future, and see the need for a change in mindset regarding alternate paths of education. It is imperative that our youth are able to follow a mapped path to success. Mapping their educational journey through alternatives means that our youth can acquire the knowledge they need to successfully develop a business career from business leaders who are already successful.

Although college is a viable means for acquiring education, the gravitas of methods that provide experience through hands-on training is priceless. HANDS-ON TRAINING offers tools for scientific and artistic justification, documenting the why and the how of an operation, and a visualization of the process from beginning to end. Projects, such as the Advanced Manufacturing Production (AMP) program provides community youth with hands-on learning experience, by placing them side-by-side with experts in the field.  These experts volunteer time, talent and other valuable resources, to teach students every aspect of the industry from concept to delivery. Students that apply themselves, following to completion this educational journey, are positioned toward a lifetime of achievement and economic success.

Do you remember career day in grade school?

The pride and excitement as a parade of professionals marched through in their uniforms, giving all the highlights and perks of their specialty. Remember, after the fanfare had ended, being tickled playing dress-up, or having fanciful dreams; awed by so many options. Had you considered them all? Did you wonder? Or did you already know, when asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Early exposure to field professionals can encourage students to explore their interests and delve deeper into what those industries have to offer.  The beauty of this is that once a student’s interest is realized, passion can be cultivated. Early cultivation done properly is the secret to shaping a true industry leader. The Untangled Minds Foundation specializes in cultivating the passion of youth, by infusing students with confidence in their ability to present innovative creations that will drive industry to unimaginable heights. Through the AMP program students are provided a unique experience, immersed in every aspect of the business.

Our partnership with both the local high school and an accredited technical college ensure a superior level of working knowledge to support technical skills they will acquire through hands on training. Focusing on molding industry leaders, our expectation of students is high, as is our standard of professionals with whom they are paired. Additionally, we are committed to their variety in knowledge. Therefore, students are allowed to sit in on, and learn about each position, from shop supervisor to owner.

One aspect of our training that differentiates us from others is the entrepreneurial mindset of our culture, which is reflected in our methodology, as well as, our pragmatism. Once a student leaves our program they have the knowledge, skills, and understanding for each responsibility, along with the experience to take it on. We know the key to cultivating passion is constant exposure, hands on interaction, encouragement and organic talent acquisition. Their pride, confidence and ability will drive their immediate economic success and financial freedom.

AMP is a cooperative effort among community and industry leaders to introduce young students to the structure and strategies of business development. Tanglewood Conservatories is excited to talk about the AMP program with industry leaders and individuals that have a heart and interest in making a difference in their communities.

Where did all those manufacturing jobs go?

Actually, did you know that for every graduate of an Advanced Manufacturing Program at the career and technical level, there are FIVE jobs in the U.S. available? That’s FIVE – high paying, advanced, technologically demanding jobs that DO NOT require a college education.

How is that possible? Watch the video below.

 

Tanglewood Conservatories has created the Untangled Minds Foundation whose mission is to develop and deliver curriculum designed to train High School students in the skills required for success in the 21st Century Advanced Manufacturing economy.

Untangled Minds has recently received approval from the State of Maryland for its Advanced Manufacturing and Production program to be introduced in the fall of this year in the Caroline County Career and Technical Center. Admission to the program is competitive. Prospective students need to pass entrance interviews, testing, and be recommended by a mentor. The program is heavily focused on Life Success Skills and Entrepreneurship.

Legacy Conservatories: What will yours entail?

Comments Off on Legacy Conservatories: What will yours entail?

 

Imagine… creating a legacy that transcends generations. What would yours entail?

Does the combination of modern buildings and old world architecture inspire you? How would you make an impact on your home?

Aspiring to leave a lasting legacy is one of our clients driving forces behind creating a conservatory. They love the uniqueness of the architecture, the combination of historic beauty and modern technology while still possessing the ability to transform the structure into anything they dream of; to create a room that truly has no replica.

A recent client put it best, “every detail of my conservatory needs to be perfect. This is a legacy project. We are thinking of our children’s children!”

Building Inside Out

Have you ever traveled to the Schönbrunn Palm house Conservatory in Vienna, Austria? This magnificent structure is one of the most unique, historic conservatories in the world and is known best for its exoskeleton design. That exoskeleton is rare, and makes the conservatory look more massive and strong from the outside. Inside the glass seems connected mostly by its edges, presenting smooth sheets of transparency.

It is also the inspiration for a couple’s grand pool enclosure in the San Juan Islands.

Drawn to its unique look of strength and permanence, the family wanted to echo the exoskeleton design with a few upgrades. While we are quite familiar with building glass conservatories, we have never done one like this before! Normally the frame of a building is hidden between the inside and outside walls, but this design exposes everything.

 

In a typical glass conservatory, the frame or skeleton is on the inside with the glass hung or attached outside as the skin of the building. Of course, the glass not only creates the temperature controlled inside, it allows you to see the frame, but inside the glass. With the exoskeleton design, the interior of the conservatory glass is smooth and uninterrupted. In truth, we spent about six months consulting with engineers and brainstorming in order to create exactly the pool house our clients wanted.

The result is amazing. Although much smaller than the Schönbrunn, its exoskeleton creates exactly the look and strength the client wanted. The exoskeleton sparkles in the sunlight, just as the glass and the water in the pool shines in total concert with the harbor’s – all in an enclosure that’s about 1,900 square feet.

So, how would you create your legacy?

Let us help you create a structure that will awaken and delight for generations. Schedule a consultation or call 1-410 479 4700 to discuss your vision.

70 Percent of medicines come from the most common of plants. Why not grow some for yourself?

Comments Off on 70 Percent of medicines come from the most common of plants. Why not grow some for yourself?

When people think about adding a greenhouse to their property they are usually thinking about growing fresh or exotic foods, or flowers in mid winter or just extending their growing season. And a greenhouse will make all these things possible. Often overlooked is the ability to grow some of your own medicine.

Have you considered a living green wall?

Our partner, Dea Schofield, writes about growing your own medicine in a blog she titled Are YOU Growing Your Medicine this Winter? Dea is an expert horticulturist we met through a client who was an avid plant collector.

Dea managed his exclusive collection of edible plants. He was passionate about nature and wanted a greenhouse to show off his extensive plant collection. To relate to their existing home we designed a “Horticultural Jewel Box” as it had often been referred that combined all the elements of a gardener’s dream; a seating nook, delectable and edible plants, overlooking the water, and a little touch of the client’s unique design touch that made this greenhouse so unique.

To allow the greenhouse to house a multitude of plant species it required substantial heating and pumping equipment to make the climate consistent year ‘round. To hide the system and still keep the integrity of the design, we integrated a wall of living plants rather than the typical stick-it-outside-and-hope-no-one-notices approach. Few people realize that plant wall actually hides the mechanical equipment! Our plant collector loved the solution, and loves showing it off to visitors.

Dea talks more about the plants our collector grew and more in her blog “Difficult Challenges & Great Rewards.”

Wild Medicine

Dea is not alone in recognizing the value of medicinal plants. Starting Jan. 21, 2016 the Enid Haupt Conservatory at the New York Botanical Gardens is hosting Wild Medicine in the Tropics. Many of the plants exhibited there would work well in a home greenhouse and you can even get some tips and tricks on which are best for your area!


Well respected Dr. Mercola points out that few  people recognize that roughly 70 percent of the medicines we use in the U.S. are derived from plants and other products from nature. He lists seven underappreciated medicinal plants, some of which you may already be growing. All of them, listed below, can also be grown in a greenhouse year around.

·       Ginger ·       Peppermint
·       Garlic ·       Lavender
·       Chamomile ·       Thyme
·       Dandelion

 

A greenhouse with all the plants you cherish, from flowers through edibles and on to medicinal is a magical place, for you, your family and for your legacy.

Will adding a conservatory or pool enclosure increase the value of my home?

Comments Off on Will adding a conservatory or pool enclosure increase the value of my home?

conservatory

We’re often asked if a glass conservatory or elegant pool house adds value to a home.

What do you think? Is that even the right question?

We’re partnered with a writer who, before she began writing, was the third generation in her family’s real estate business on the west coast.  She told us that her father advised people who were searching for a home not to consider it part of their investment portfolio, although he recognized that a house could indeed be an investment. Instead, he suggested they buy and use the home that best suited the family – in other words if you want a conservatory in your home get one.

What does a conservatory add?

There are three critical values to determine the worth of any home; what you think its worth, what it’s going to be worth to someone else, and what a professional will think it’s worth. While that’s true when you’re talking price, it doesn’t encompass what living in the home is like for you.

When we talk with our clients about what the conservatory brings to them, the most common response is it’s become a part of their everyday lifestyle, where they go for safe haven, create priceless family memories, and live out the things they are most passionate about. Often it comes down to becoming part of their legacy; the mark they want to leave on their family with the most cherished memories.

What is the value of a memory? Or a place where you feel close to nature and at peace? A place of light and love?

In our experience, an elegant, well-crafted conservatory generates massive curb appeal to a home, drawing people’s eyes around the room to look at the detail within the wood and steel work.

A Recent Sale

Several years ago we built a conservatory for Hollywood Director Ron Howard as a focal point with elegant seating at the far end of his pool house. It added just the right dramatic touch, matching and enhancing the beauty of his estate.

On Friday, January 9, 2015, the CT Post announced the sale of Ron Howard’s home for $27.5 million! From curb appeal to relaxing nooks to family fun spaces, the home is nothing less than extraordinary. What many find as most appealing is the heated indoor pool linked to its glass conservatory. During those cold New England winters, this addition to Ron’s home is the perfect cure-all for those long, dark months and a perfect protected place when it’s hot outside.

While we certainly don’t know how much Ron’s pool house conservatory contributed to the sale price, we’re pretty sure it didn’t hurt. After all, how could it?

Not surprisingly, Ron Howard obviously has an eye for design and for a true artist’s attention to detail.

This expansive property set amidst 32 groomed acres might be called the epitome of visual appeal. There’s a delightful flavor of the Victorian and the pool house he added while he lived there played well with that theme.

Beauty creates its own draw

People are naturally drawn to beauty and as HGTV puts it:

“A good-looking face isn’t just memorable – in real estate, an attractive exterior can make or break a home sale.”

There’s no reason to think a glass conservatory or gorgeous pool house does anything but improve the face a home presents to the world.

Of course, a conservatory or pool houses is more than a pretty face. They provide the kind of space that creates a celebration of life and health. With the natural light and warm, healthy atmosphere, families and friends, young and old often find themselves in a kind of intimacy that’s hard to replicate anyplace else.

Just as a glass conservatory or magnificent pool house adds beauty, it can also add value to your home and your legacy. To learn more, take a look at our e-brochure on the left hand side of this webpage or schedule a 30 minute consultation with our team.

 

What does Tanglewood’s Commitment to Building a World Class Team Mean to You?

Comments Off on What does Tanglewood’s Commitment to Building a World Class Team Mean to You?

In the New Year, we are taking action to transform our already great team into a truly World Class, dynamite team. Our vision is to empower everyone we serve through transformational living spaces that will awaken and delight for generations. Our goal is to be better stewards of our talents for creating the most luxurious glass conservatories in the world and provide the highest standard of service to our clients and partners

Business Fundamentals for Success

Alan Stein, co-founder and co-owner of Tanglewood Conservatories began his career as a woodworker. When he thinks back on how he came to lead the business that has re-kindled the love of glass conservatories he says, “When I started the company years ago, I could do anything our team could do. I would often pick up a tool, and show them how to do it.”

“Those days are long gone,” Alan admits. “Now when I take complicated conservatory designs to our production department, the team tells me how they would like to build them. It’s a group that exudes a real ‘can do’ energy and enthusiasm.”

Tanglewood has recognized that in addition to creating the glass conservatories they are so well known for, to increase their already high standard of excellence and service, they need to expand their understanding of how to develop an elite business. To that end, they’ve been working with Executive Business Coach Mark Boersma to learn what makes an outstanding business so outstanding, and precisely how we can implement that in our business.

Understanding these fundamentals allows our staff and management to put systems in place that help every member of the team make sure not only are they doing what they should, but that nothing gets overlooked – every day in all ways possible. The result is an elite product and service you deserve.

 

Success in Numbers

As we expand our knowledge in all phases of our business it opens up the opportunity to form partnerships to not only empower some of our dreams and goals, but also passions of others in our community. One way we are helping to empower our community is through shared passions to empower kids by teaching them entrepreneurial and life success skills necessary to compete in the global business environment. Together with Caroline County Public Schools and local business owners, we’ve developed the AMP program to actively get students more involved in the community, thinking like business owners, and developing their skills beyond the technical need to do a job; they will also have the emotional intelligence to successfully work with a team and manage operations and teams efficiently and effectively through high level leadership skills. We are working hard to ensure students have the best chance of success in the workforce as either employees or successful entrepreneurs.

We soon will be reaching more kids; we recently met and partnered with The Crossing, an Indiana state accredited academic school program dedicated to show struggling students how to become contributing members of their communities. The Crossing has a vision:

 To transform lives through education by focusing on the heart and mind

The Crossing has developed an engaging entrepreneurial system that not only teaches students the technical skills to do the hands on work, but combines their training with essential everyday life skills to develop students beyond expectations and make them an ideal member of any company; this is what Tanglewood is working to accomplish with the AMP program

Continually learning and strengthening our team’s skills and developing innovative designs are how we create a unique journey for you as you design and create your conservatory.

We hope 2017 is your best year yet and we look forward to enjoying it with you! Please, feel free to get in touch. You can call us at 410.479.4700 or use the form on our contact page.

 

Happy New Year!

Palmhouse ConservatoryGoals, informed by life vision are recognized ways successful people achieve what they want. It’s the way dreams turn into reality.

Daydreams inform our goals

Although daydreaming is frowned on by some, others recognize daydreams as the key to creativity. Last year, an essay in The New York Times reminded us that Albert Einstein was known for his daydreaming – his thought experiments.

EntreArchitect™ quoted motivator and coach, Tony Robbins as saying, “… Brainstorm everything worth pursuing. Then pick a goal that excites you the most, something that will get you up early and keep you up late…”

We dream with our clients

As we work with our clients and examine how the best results happen, we notice that we always start with their dream and work make their dream come true through our craftsmanship and attention to detail. This is true in every case. Without the dream, nothing would be built.conservatory dreams

Of course, the fruition of the dream starts when someone chooses to move forward. It’s in the moving forward that dreams begin to manifest, first in design and the plans and then in the actual creation of the glass conservatory or magnificent skylight, or exciting greenhouse.

Small step by small step the dream turns into a goal, complete with plans and deadlines; before long the dream is realized, often in ways that are better than first imagined.

We know that in every case someone has to begin. You can start on making your dream of a conservatory or a special pool house, or a dome that invites light by getting in touch with us. Call us at: 1-410-479-4700

A community group gathered at Tanglewood Conservatories to build a bridge between high school student’s job opportunities and local business needs.

“It was fantastic to see such a great turn out!”

Jennifer, Tanglewood Team

Wednesday evening saw local teachers, parents, students, high school and college administrators, and local business leaders gather at Tanglewood Conservatories to learn about efforts to develop a leadership and entrepreneurial centered skills program for students at the Caroline County Career and Technical Center.

The AMP program is being developed to provide both technical and Life Success Skills training that will prepare students to pursue rewarding, high-level positions in companies across the region. Graduating students will be members of a well-trained, engaged workforce sought after by companies and required for the future growth of our regional economy.

Why is this important to your business?

Imagine… having well-trained, skilled high school students ready to start work for you right after graduation. If you are interested, call us to discuss the partnership opportunities the AMP program offers!

 

About our Meeting

The evening began with a tour of Tanglewood’s design and production facilities which concluded a series of ten visits by local teachers to Eastern Shore manufacturing companies. The tours were organized by MEPE to give teachers and guidance counselors throughout the region insight into the types of skills needed by regional employers and the types of career opportunities that exist for students.

Following dinner, Josh Zimmerman CTE Business Liaison for Caroline County Public Schools presented an overview of the Advanced Manufacturing and Production program which is targeted to be introduced at CCTC this spring. Five students from the junior and senior class will be selected to participate in the pilot program before the program is introduced county wide.

A spirited discussion followed covering subjects ranging from how to help young people gain the qualities employers seek to how employers can think differently about building their teams.

What’s to come of the AMP Program

At the heart of the AMP program’s Life Success Skills, is an entrepreneurial approach to leadership training which is designed to be applied in any academic or business environment.

Other exciting developments include the opportunity to work closely with Chesapeake College to extend the student opportunities by offering an articulated two year extension to the AMP program leading to students earning an Associate’s degree through Chesapeake College.

We are thankful for YOU!

Comments Off on We are thankful for YOU!

huntsville botanical gardensEvery year we are thankful for our family, our team, our current and future clients, our friends, and community who have helped us get to where we are today.

This month we also want to take the time to thank two companies who have made an impact on our lives and who have also become great friends.

We were delighted when Turner Construction in Alabama reached out to us to partner with them in creating and building a conservatory for the Huntsville Botanical Gardens.

The botanical garden

Best known as the Community Gardens, the Huntsville Botanical Gardens was a favored spot even before they decided to add a conservatory. They created it because, according to President and CEO Paula Steigerwald, they “wanted an event space and room to be the jewel of event spaces to attract people and leave an impression.”

Matheny Goldmon Architecture & Interiors had been brought in to do the drawings. As soon as their architect, James Curley, heard what the Botanical Gardens wanted, he took fire and created the conceptual design for the conservatory. It was the first time Curley had attempted such a project and what a job he did; he fashioned the WOW factor. He also understood from the beginning that Tanglewood was the only company that could bring his vision to life without changing the integrity of the design.

A single donor fell so in love with James’ concept that the donor funded the whole project! Turner construction wanted to ensure the integrity of that design. In fact, everyone involved knew it was important to deep design integrity and maintain the look and sense the way it was meant to be.

A WOW of a Partnership

PMP, LEED AP, also of Turner, were great. You might have thought we’d all learned to build together when we were kids. They were excellent communicators and totally understood that we are not typical builders, that everything we do is custom built.

Later, word came down through our own production manager that although several of the companies Turner had approached were less costly than we were, none of them seemed to understand how important the design was. They wanted to make changes. We understood the need to honor the design as it was first conceived.

Matheny Goldmon Architecture & Interiors handled the rest of the building, except for the roof, assuring the original design was kept intact. We loved working with them. Their company culture is “Making spaces and places that enrich people’s lives or increase the creative influence in a workspace. We’re about ideas and opportunities.”

We fount them to be true to their word. As we work together our appreciation for each other’s commitment and creativity continue to grown.

When coupled with the wonderful people at Turner, whose vision is “To be the highest value provider of global construction services and technical expertise” 

we knew we’re working with the absolute best. 

What was most memorable about this partnership?

There were many moments when we thrilled at how well the partnership was working.

Tanglewood’s Project Manager, Delfina Ezcurra, put it this way:

It was a partnership through and through. We really worked well together and we were treated like equal partners. They were very kind and helpful and we felt they wanted us to succeed just as much as we wanted them to succeed – they always gave a helping hand anytime we needed it.

The roof is ours!

The roof is a magnificent 812 square feet of glass and light; the copula stands above it all.

The conservatory is being built with Sapele, Mahogany, Steel and Copper. Nearing completion, this beautiful conservatory will be open to the public soon. It will be a must-see, we promise.

 

More to Come

This project with Matheny Goldmon and Turner makes us eager for more of the same.

We look forward to forming more partnerships to create a room that not only fashions the peaceful and restful spot you want now, but adds to the legacy you want to build for the future.

Call us at 410-479-4700 to get started designing the conservatory of your dreams, or you can fill out the form on our contact page to begin.

What makes great conservatory design?

Posted November 16th, 2016 by Nicole Mihalos and filed in Conservatory Projects, General, Insights
Comments Off on What makes great conservatory design?

valencia-canopy2_copyright

Conservatory design is unique. The amount of knowledge, craftsmanship, research, and attention to design and detail greatly differs from the creation of any other room in the world. According to Bill Bertsche, with Mercer & Bertsche Architecture & Engineering, “…few architects have the experience required to design and detail a TRUE CONSERVATORY. You could approach it as a stick built room, could make a frame and put in glass and windows, but you’d miss the essence of what a GREAT CONSERVATORY should be – GLASS AND LIGHT.”

Great conservatory design secrets

“In architecture, two major factors determine the success or failure of a structure; the form and the function.”

For over 20 years, our expert designer has been designing some of the country’s most unique and innovative conservatories. From elegant greenhouses to luxurious conservatories to elegant pool enclosures, he always says two main elements create beautiful designs; a structures form and its intended function.

The trick, of course, is how to get there. Close attention to details, he points out, is integral to the process. According to our designer,

Eye pleasing form and specifically defined functions, whether it be a greenhouse, conservatory, or pool enclosure,  should complement each other and come together harmoniously to create a true conservatory design.”

Conservatories are works of art, carefully handcrafted to fit the specific needs of individuals and bring peace to your home. In his experience, harmony is created in the details. What sets conservatory design a part from say the design of your home or office building is the attention to detail not only in the furniture and items within the room and its function/purpose, but the details built into the core structure of the room itself. We approach every design as a blank sheet of paper with endless possibilities; as our designer always says, “I’ve been designing for Tanglewood for over 20 years and of all my favorites, they have one thing in common, I was given total freedom to design from scratch and each structure was built unlike anything else in the world.”

When we asked him what he liked best about designing for Tanglewood, he said, “We never build the same thing twice. Each and every conservatory is different and has its own unique personality and challenges. I’m often amazed at what we’re able to do. Of course, we learn from each one too. It never gets boring. The more complex and challenging the design the better I like them. I would not have lasted 21 years if I did not enjoy the work I do. It’s not just designing and building – we really are creating art.”

Why our clients want conservatories

The reasons our clients want conservatories are myriad. Many are looking to create a space to enjoy a sense of outdoor living no matter the weather outside. Many realize a glass conservatory creates the ideal place to retreat and commune with the beauty and ambience of growing plants and flowers.

Others look to add beautiful works of art to their home, and/or for their community. .One of our current clients is looking to design a conservatory to perfectly frame a stunning view while providing a serene place for personal and family re-creation of those undergoing medical treatment.

Families and friends make memories that last a lifetime and leave a legacy in these rooms. Imagine what that memories you and your family might make surrounded by such beauty.

What would you add to this list? What dreams might the idea of a well-designed conservatory spark in you?

Why we build conservatories

We love building these rooms because we feel they bring a sense of peace, tranquility, and rejuvenation to oneself; the enchantment these spaces bring is unlike anything we’ve ever experience before. We love the challenge of innovative design and using new materials to build truly classical spaces.steel_glass_3

But what is most satisfying, is bringing our clients visions to life; exactly how they envision it.
We start with a conversation with the owner and their team to discover exactly what it is they want to experience in their conservatory. With careful consideration and attention to detail, we turn their vision into hand-drawn renderings which, when the design is exactly what the client is looking for, we begin to bring those drawings to life. Each element in the construction is carefully considered to make sure it exceeds expectation whether it be specially laser carved steel beams or searching for an exact type of rare wood to set the tone of the room, it is important we do our part in creating the perfect atmosphere that will reflect the look and feel the client desires. We make sure your conservatory will appeal to all your senses, detail by detail.
Take a look at our e-brochure & read through it. It may spark your imagination in ways that both please and excite you.

What are some favorite designs?

“When we allow our imaginations to take flight, the results are amazing and often surprising. Anything is possible in conservatory architecture; we just have to break outside of the box and approach every new project as a blank sheet of paper and not trying to fit an existing idea into a preconceived box”

Do you have a favorite design? We can help you achieve the great conservatory design and feel you are searching for. Perhaps a no-cost 30 minute consultation would be a good place to start! To secure yours, call us at 410-479-4700 or fill out our form.
