Project      Hothouse

The Hothouse is built in a way that is going to last, with traditional methods of construction such as the steel windows and brick walls. But the appearance of the building is far from conventional.

However atop the building’s roof terrace are the artist’s studios fitted with photovoltaic cells integrated into the glass canopy that links the studios. The incorporation of the PV helps to prevent the corridor from overheating through shading, and they generate electricity.
