Merle Thorpe Architects

Greenhouse Addition

This greenhouse addition was designed to showcase the owners’ unique collection of horticultural species. The design of the glass, pyramid-shaped roof also pays an unapologetic tribute to one of the clients’ favorite works of architecture: The design of I.M. Pei’s entrance to the Louvre. The addition’s seamless structural design and integration of mechanical and electrical engineering requirements ensure the addition’s ongoing success as a working greenhouse and adjunct space for living and entertaining.
