Greenhouse by Joost, Sydney

ABOUT

 

THE GREENHOUSE IS ABOUT DESIGNING AND OPERATING BETTER PLACES FOR PEOPLE. PLACES THAT LET US TOUCH NATURAL MATERIALS, UNDERSTAND WHERE EVERYDAY THINGS COME FROM AND TASTE FRESH FOOD STRAIGHT FROM THE GARDEN.

Designers, engineers, builders, scientists, farmers, chefs and others are among those whose knowledge and advice have gone into every aspect of creating the Greenhouse, from the lighting, to the menu, to the fresh baked bread and the worm farm. The Greenhouse aims to harness the growing understanding of the human footprint to offer alternative solutions that tread a fine balance between functionality, sustainability and beauty.

All the features of the Greenhouse are carefully considered first for their practicality, recyclability, life cycle and embodied energy and then for their aesthetics and cost. By putting each decision through this rigorous process, it is hoped that the Greenhouse can provide information and examples to builders, designers, restaurateurs and the public, regarding their daily choices of materials, ingredients, and practices.
