Adding greenhouse structures to existing residential structures in order to increase agricultural products is considered as a challenge. In this paper the comparison of a three-dimensional residential building is investigated in three cases: without greenhouse structure, with rigid connection to the greenhouse structure and the greenhouse structure seismically isolated from the base structure using FPS. It was observed that adding additional mass on the last floor of the base structure can cause an unpredictable increase in the amounts of base shear and roof displacement. It was observed that FPS showed a proper behavior during near-field earthquakes. In terms of base shear and roof displacement the structure with FPS showed a better performance than the structure without FPS.
