Thornhill Solarium WingAlthough every room we build is unique, almost every space can be classified in one of two ways. Typically a space is either “open concept” or a “destination” room. In this instance, the use of a “glass hallway” to connect the house proper to the main solarium, leaves little doubt that the space we have created here is the later. For this client, we used a “glass hallway” - a method to push all the glass off the house and further into the ravine setting. In this special circumstance the room “floats” off the house. Normally the maximum peripheral view one can typically achieve in a Permawood solarium is 180 degrees (because of the existence of a back wall), whereas in this instance, we achieved close to 270 degrees of peripheral view! This affords all who occupy the space the luxury of feeling like they are in their surroundings and not just simply looking at the view.
