Bloot Architecture | Green house Kiosk (kaskiosk)
Bloot Architecture has in collaboration with mypizzaoven.nl won a Dutch architecture competition for De Dag van de Architectuur (National day of Architecture) organized by podium voor architectuur. The theme of this year’s day was Architecture and food. We developed a greenhouse-kiosk like building with a living pizza-buffet. The design is fully sustainable; you can cook without electricity and grow your own toppings for the pizza. The design is suitable for events and groups with adults and children and can act as a ‘placemaking’ event. The design will be realized in Hoofdorp, the Netherlands…
When the greenhouse-kiosk is closed, the building works as an elevated greenhouse; a sustainable eye catcher. The kiosk is then closed for the public and can also be used as storage for example the wooden barstools. When the kiosk is opened a whole new world emerges. The plastic greenhouse slides up and all sides of the building turn into a bar adjacent to the elevated garden filled with ingredients for your pizza, like tomatoes, courgettes, peppers, herbs, etcetera, the living pizza-buffet. You can walk into the garden to also pick your ingredients and to bake your own pizza in the authentic wood fired pizza oven.
The project will be a temporary building and can there for especially well be made of used materials. The Construction consists out of scaffold tubes. The greenhouse is made of corrugated transparent plastic. The bar and the garden is constructed out of scrap wood. The pizza oven will be made from old bricks, chicken wire and clay. The design activates the awareness of the importance of the production food in the build environment. A movable greenhouse that can transform into a kiosk with a living pizza-buffet.
