Project Description

A large pond reflects the cantilevering greenhouse overhead. An open atrium pierces through the greenhouse, which has operable glass louvres on the walls, roof, and floor and steel grate floors to allow users to occupy the space. The flexible design of the atrium allows the plants to interact with the elements year-round with adjustable conditions at the discretion of the occupants.
