Warehouse Greenhouse is about the past and the future.

It is a story of industrialisation and human occupation, and an attempt to reconcile these with the natural environment.

Designed for a quiet, tenacious family of guerrilla gardeners and artisans, of quiet intellect and determination, this project is about doing more with less. It signals the possibility of a simple, elegant path to a sustainable future.

Warehouse Greenhouse is a simple, contextual extension built out of corrugated Zincalume cladding. Remnants of the existing building are preserved and expressed revealing its imperfections and years of layered wear. The approach was to harness the embodied energy of the existing building; to keep as much as possible and add only what was necessary.

This project is an exercise in considered restraint. The clients care deeply about the environment and worked with us, meticulously, to build a hand crafted, beautifully insulated small footprint family home.

Ross Gardam products featured in this project include the Duet Stools and Ora Desk Lamp.
