Two Story Greenhouse
KOHN ARCHITECTURE inspected and evaluated a large 2 story duplex greenhouse/skylight on the 13th floor of a building in a landmarked district that was leaking. Leak testing was performed and, it was determined that replacement was necessary. We located the original structure’s manufacturer and worked with them to design a replacement greenhouse/skylight that would address today’s energy codes, remedy a snow buildup, problem fix flashing problems, and be acceptable to the Landmarks Preservation Commission. We also worked with the sidewalk bridge company and erector to develop a strategy for hoisting the new structures up 13 floors and into place.
