Designed by Carl Verdickt in Belgium, the archetypal housing box shape forms a ready-made, easily sub-dividable steel structure contained within a curtain wall of typical greenhouse polyethylene.

Project Greenhouse is furnished minimally with whites and woods to complement the feeling of ‘openness’ that prevails throughout the abode.

Inside the large open loft space within, the internal walls can be relocated.

The layout is that of a reverted house layout in which the private quarters are located underneath the public spaces of the house situated on the open loft space above.
