THE GREEN HOUSE

PROJECTS - Mar 2018

The Green House is a place which should feel as living room, a place where people can eat, meet, relax and enjoy the green environment.


PROJECT FACTS

Location | Utrecht
Furniture | Hrbs Cart
Hrbs | 300+ trays


The Green House, located next to Utrecht central station, includes different functions as: a restaurant for 150 people, flexible meeting rooms, an urban farm, an outside terrace and an outside edible garden that are distributed over two floors. With Makers of Sustainable Spaces (MOSS), sister company of HRBS, we designed and developed the urban farm and outside herbs garden.

This building is a one-of-a-kind because it is built entirely for circularity, which is even seen in the architecture that is completely dismountable and built of reclaimed materials of the former KnoopKazerne. A building that was previously located on the same grounds of The Green House. Fifteen years from its construction date it will be built up elsewhere. Most striking is the publicly accessible urban farm - a greenhouse of 80m2 on the first floor including crops of HRBS - that is clearly visible from the street side. Here is where vegetables and herbs are harvested to be processed in the meals of The Green House. Harvesting right on site, omitting packaging and refrigeration makes it super fresh and sustainable.  

Quote Peter Scholte (chef)

'The possibility to serve my dishes with our own herbs and crops from the urban farm makes the dishes super special. This is what is unique about the Green House, the freshness and pureness. I love to experiment with the herbs to give my dishes even more taste'.
