transparent shed roof in a Private House / Family Greenhouse Project

In modern construction, a transparent roof in a private house is not only an aesthetic and creative structural element, but can perform purely practical functions, for example, when equipping a greenhouse in the attic.

multifunctionality of a transparent shed roof

The placement of a greenhouse on a roof under a glass roof is dictated by several requirements. Firstly, it saves the area of the site and does not spoil its appearance with unnecessary buildings. Secondly, it saves money on building the foundation for the greenhouse. Thirdly, the residual heat from the house is used to heat the attic floor.

The construction of the house does not imply a typical hierarchy, which provides for one main entrance. Around the perimeter of the house is a walking terrace, which is completely covered with an overhanging glass roof. Thanks to the sliding panoramic windows, each room can be accessed through an open area.

In addition to the entrance to the living room or bedroom, from the terrace there is also a separate entrance to the greenhouse through a steel staircase on one side of the house. Although both levels are separated functionally and constructively, you can get into the greenhouse in the attic without leaving the yard.

Using a transparent roof in a private house for equipping a greenhouse in the attic makes it possible to maximize the use of sunlight and heat. This creates a special microclimate, which, combined with well-thought-out ventilation, is ideal for growing tropical plants.

Innovative architectural solutions have created an original place for doing business in growing exotic plants and at the same time for relaxation and meditation of all family members.

The greenhouse on the roof of the house requires a special approach to the choice of materials and the design of the ceiling to protect the interior from possible excess moisture and water on the floor during irrigation. Experienced construction consultants will help you choose moisture-resistant building materials.

The country house with a transparent roof is divided into two parts: living quarters on the ground floor and attic greenhouses. Stone walls, as the main load-bearing elements of the building, are softened by exposed wooden beams of the ceiling, bright interspersed with furniture and interior elements.

Panoramic floor-to-ceiling glazing opens up interior spaces for air and sunlight. From each room of the house, residents can freely admire the surrounding landscapes without leaving the building.

The combination of wood, concrete, natural and bright colors in the interior makes the living rooms sunny, spacious, comfortable and secluded, despite the transparent roof in a private house.
