Renewed and sustainable icon
The eye-catcher of the Amsterdam Hortus Botanicus was designed by ZJA in the early 1990s, as a contemporary construction of steel and glass.
It became a popular attraction for visitors and Amsterdam residents. Three decades later, the Three Climate Greenhouse is ready for a major renovation. An urgency that the Hortus uses to sustainably renew the greenhouse. It will be the first gas-free public greenhouse in the Netherlands. And also the only place where the importance of plant biodiversity and its relationship with climate is explained. With all sustainable adjustments, the preservation of the characteristic elements and an optimal living environment for the plant collection, the renovated Three-Climate Greenhouse of the Hortus will be completely ready for the future.
