The concept for Greenhouse is unique yet refreshingly simple; a collection of distinctive homes and offices powered by sustainable energy, with an emphasis on strong community spirit.
The design, location, on-site amenities, leading-edge sustainable technology and residents of this building have all made this possible. Greenhouse represents a new way of life that unites and delivers all the dynamics desired for sustainable living.
A part refurbishment of a classic 1930’s building, the design ethos embraces the history of the building with exposed concrete, timber and brickwork combined with contemporary statement colours, fabrics and retro-chic furniture. The combination of rooftop wind turbines, solar panels, ground source heating, and central rain and grey water tanks create sustainable energy to support everyday living and working, without compromising on design, function or quality.
The spacious courtyard provides the ideal setting for socialising with neighbours, and on-site amenities such as the gym, deli, conference space and vintage bike club, not too mention the nearby allotments, only help to strengthen the sense of community.
