Holcim Awards Acknowledgement prize 2011 winner for High-density cottage garden structure: Eathouse.
Holcim Awards Acknowledgement prize 2011 winner for High-density cottage garden structure: Eathouse.

The jury identified the strength of the project was its extensive concept, which is as emblematical as it is concrete, and encourages discussions. The most important innovation of the project, however, is that by building the structure, the space consumed and withdrawn from agriculture will be more than compensated by using the façade and the roof to increase agricultural production capacity. Eathouse helps to improve the life cycle assessment and it is a convincing contribution to the design of the environment.
