The ‘Greenhaus’ at Kinship Landing
Kinship Landing is a new 40-room boutique hotel located in the lively downtown district of Colorado Springs, Colorado. This trendy hotel offers hostel-style bunk rooms as well as designer guest suites, a communal kitchen, and a hip café and bar with a sunroom dubbed the “Greenhaus’.
The ceiling and walls of the light filled Greenhaus are clad with high-performance LEXAN™ THERMOCLEAR™ 16mm 5x-wall polycarbonate. The opal-colored panels transform this lobby-level eatery into an ambient and softly lit lounge — a comfortable area for both locals and travelers alike to relax, eat, and drink.
Because structures like this with glass roofs usually require expensive shading, multiwall polycarbonate was a cost-effective material choice for this greenhouse inspired space.
Using opal-colored polycarbonate panels just made sense for many reasons. The color diffuses sunlight well, reduces the intensity of the sun’s rays, and helps to eliminate unwanted glare.
In addition, LEXAN™ THERMOCLEAR™ multiwall polycarbonate has an impressive balance of strong impact performance, outstanding thermal properties, UV and fire resistance, and long-term light transmission.
Weighing a fraction of the weight, multiwall polycarbonate panels require less structural support than all-glass systems, saving builders construction time, material, and labor costs.
The Greenhaus at the Kinship Landing Hotel brings the feel of nature indoors. The translucent ceiling is lined with hanging potted greenery. Multiple garage doors can be opened to spacious outdoor terraces when the weather is nice. The greenhouse atmosphere is welcoming and inviting. It is a wonderful event space for company-based guest parties, weddings, and related gatherings.
The polycarbonate panels for this project were supplied by Greenhouses Del Sol. Started back in 1991, this reputable company has steadily grown over the years and has become a notable local source for greenhouse building materials and accessories.
“When I drive by, I always see a good crowd of people enjoying the greenhouse and other amenities. It was a great job,” said Ralph, the greenhouse and sunroom guy with Greenhouses Del Sol. “I’m so happy I had the honor and privilege of building this greenhouse for them. It has already provided many referrals.”
