Greenhouse By Joost is the latest of Joost Bakker's zero waste system project that TPS is proudly sponsoring. The build of the Greenhouse will be at no other than Federation Square.

Mission Statement: 'Imagine a home that produces more energy than you need, grows more food than you can possibly eat, a complete closed loop - a zero waste system inspired by nature.'

You can book a tour of the Greenhouse here.

Joost set us a challenge early 2020.

Creating a large window for the kitchen that would allow a heap of light in, would open out to create a glazed roof to allow a film crew to operate under, could be operated by one person, had to be thermally broken steel, double glazed and be one panel of glass.

The answer: a Forster Unico outward opening strut supported window. It works like a dream and looks incredible!
