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.
