Druid Hill Conservatory / Baltimore, MD
New Old Elegance

Specifications for the new greenhouses were written from the Palm House renovation window specs in order to echo the dimensioning, design and rhythm of the older, main conservatory structure.  These north and south pavilions were designed to be compatible with their historic surroundings, were symmetrically sited, connected with the original buildings and provided more visitor-friendly meeting space. 

The window manufacturer was charged with figuring out the details including custom flashing and panning, and engineering the anchorage and structural systems.

 Project Highlights

  • Marvin Signature Products and Services provided a comprehensive system that functioned effectively, met performance criteria, and resolved design issues.
  • Units were produced with custom color clad, custom casing and subsill to match existing casing on the original building, and clad milled plates for windows to replicate the round tops on the original building.
  • The Marvin Signature team figured out flashing details and engineered structural and anchoring specifications, working within a design that held some challenging dimensionality.
