There has been one near constant to my design development, a greenhouse. Recently we developed highly rendered images of an aspect we felt was extremely important to this new building type that we have been working towards. Mine was “Access to Nature.” Anyone who knows me very well will understand that my connection with the natural world sometimes borders on the eccentric, so its no wonder that a most important aspect has been the greenhouse. This space serves multiple functions: workplace for starting seeds, transplanting, and preparing plants for sale; an area for muddy ceramics work; large stairs for elevated seating and citrus growing; and a social and relaxing area. Now to the rest of the design!
