Alegria Solarium

At Gothic Arch Greenhouses, our goal is to help create your own haven, bridging the outdoors and your home with a structure of beauty and functionality. Allow us to custom design, build and install an elegant enclosure to reflect your individual sense of style and meet your individual needs. In addition to being used as a growing space, this conservatory can also be used as a retail space, pool enclosure, entertainment venue, or just as a focal point to enhance your home and landscape.

Alegria Solarium Design Elements

Our Alegria Solarium is a historic, classical design featuring a gable roofline with a gothic arch at the point. Famous for adorning some of the world’s most beautiful cathedrals, this iconic style is reminiscent of 12th century French architecture and evokes an instant feeling of the old world. Many growers appreciate the beauty of the ogee style, double curved glass arch, which forms a graceful curve from the tops of the sidewalls, then curving again as it peaks at the roof.

The unique shape of this conservatory provides more overhead space to accommodate taller greenhouse crops and gives a dramatic look and feel to your solarium. With elegant lines and exquisite detail, conservatories are the ultimate extension between your living space and the environment, providing a functional sanctuary with unparalleled beauty. These structures represent the ultimate in historic elegance and contemporary comfort.

The most notable aspect of this conservatory's design is the way it deviates from an easy-to-build greenhouse structure, becoming an ornate Gothic work of architecture that brings an elegant and grand feeling to the home. From its ogee designed roof to its open floor space, this light-filled sunroom is as beautiful as it is efficient.

Design Options:

Our Alegria Solarium is made of the highest quality materials, simple to install, fully customizable, and easy to upgrade. Offered in aluminum exterior/wooden interior options, this conservatory features a choice of solid Mahogany or Spanish Cedar wood. We also offer laminates in Southern Yellow Pine, Western Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, Redwood, and Cherry. These wood finishes offer a warm interior finish that is protected by the virtually maintenance-free aluminum exterior.

Choose from black, bronze, natural clay, white, sandstone, or Hartford green exteriors to complement your home and landscape. We also offer Kynar finishes and the ability to match any custom color, as well as wood and metal cladding options. Stainless steel and copper cladding can also be used for interior and exterior applications.

The standard greenhouse frame can withstand 85 mph winds and 30 pounds per square foot for snow loads. We offer superior design and functionality. Our thermally isolated structures and fenestration products can withstand even the most brutal outdoor climates. Our conservatories can be designed to fit any structural need, including any hurricane and seismic requirements.

Glazing Systems

The Alegria Solarium features a variety of glazing options to meet the requirements of your environment and climate. You have the option of choosing one type of glazing to use throughout your structure, or mixing and matching materials in order to optimize the interior climate.


  • Single Layer Tempered Glass:

    Our single layer tempered glass is a tempered safety glass to minimize any possibility of breakage or injury. The traditional look is appealing to greenhouse gardeners and offers full light transmission to control growing variables. Single pane glass is adequate for keeping a `cool greenhouse` in mild climates.

    R value = 0.9, approximately 95% light transmission.

  • Double Layer Insulated Glass:

    Our double layered insulated glass is a tempered safety glass to minimize any possibility of breakage or injury. Insulated double glass is the best of both worlds, providing you with the aesthetically pleasing look of a glass greenhouse and the insulation you may require for your specialty plants or for hotter, sunnier climates.

    R Value = 2.04, approximately 90% light transmission



Frames are constructed of extruded aluminum and thermally broken aluminum for maximum insulation value. The extruded aluminum parts are warranted for 15 years. Each structure is prefabricated before delivery to ensure minimal field alternations and seamless installation. This extra step results in a product that is simpler and less time consuming to install.
