Beauty and Passion takes Form – A Client’s Story

Imagine a mathematical concept brought to fruition by beauty of form and a passion of purpose …

This happened with a project that we call the “Da Vinci” project. And it led us to a new discovery in the future of steel structure.

The client dreamed of a glass conservatory that would have the charm and feel of mahogany – yet constructed using steel – to reflect his love of mathematics. In theory, the room was meant to express a concept; But in practice our Windows and Doors helped to turn Function into Form.

To turn thus Dream into Reality our craftspeople created a steel rendition of the classic Fibonacci sequence. Featured in in popular book and movie “The Da Vinci Code” this ongoing pattern is “defined as a series of numbers in which each number … is the sum of the two preceding numbers.” Using laser cut steel we were able to create a pattern of circles conceptually illustrating the sequence.

See for yourself what the end result was! –

In form, “the elbow of each support [forms] the largest circle. [And] the three circles moving out from the biggest circle decrease in size according to their Fibonacci number.” “When it was built, he was thrilled at how we met and exceeded his expectations. It is now his favorite room in his home!”

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.
