Novelty Skylights – where would YOU put one?

Clients around the globe are looking for new, innovative ways to use skylights. Whether it is a dome, cupola or other type of skylight, these additions can add beauty to any structure, while giving it an exclusive look and style. Check out these clients who took their skylights to UNIQUE PLACES!

Garden Swings

IMAGINE… It is late at night and the stars are out; you feel the soft warm breeze brush across your skin. Where are YOU? These clients are sitting under their custom copper and glass dome on their garden swing! Placed at the edge of their garden, they took an ordinary swing set and turned it into a custom work of art.

Look at the detail…

Made entirely out of steel, copper and glass, notice the small panes of overlapping glass and detail carved into the copper work of the dome. The beautiful columns surrounding the swing set an atmosphere so peaceful, you cannot help but spend your nights star gazing. Thanks to Meyer and Meyer Architects in Boston for their help in creating this dream!

Showers in the Sun

When a client asked us to design a fanciful skylight for a backyard shower, we thought… “He can’t be serious!” We had designed a beautiful conservatory for him years ago, but this seemed an unlikely project. However, six months later and after hours of design work, a most amazing structure emerged. This copper clad steel skylight with antique lapped glass and ornamental finial creates a soaring light to drench this elegant space with warmth. Only a simple arched wooden door hinted at the dramatic space behind.

The Star Cabin

Do you have a love for stargazing?

Looking for a quiet space away from civilization, the last piece to this client’s dream home is an observatory.  In the midst of building a new home in the countryside, they turned to Tanglewood in search of creating a SILO off of their beautiful log cabin home to share their love of astronomy. Just imagine… relaxing at the top of this secret hideout and, through this enormous glass dome, watching the Aurora Borealis! Flashes of various colors engulf the night sky, dancing around the stars, creating a magnificent show for you and your family.
