Greenhouse by Joost

Posted on Wed, 21 Mar 2012 by midcenturyjo

Eco-friendly, sustainable design, pop-up restaurant by Joost Bakker for the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival. The building and furniture are made from reclaimed or recycled materials, organic waste is composted and feeds the herbs, no mains electricity (it’s generated and fuelled by pure, unrefined canola oil), wall cladding and structural bracing is all-natural, formaldehyde-free plywood. (You can read more on Joost’s site). Raising grid like around the structure is Joost’s signature reo bar grid gardens. You can read more about Greenhouse by Joost and chef Matt Stone on photographer and story teller Beth Jenning‘s website. Beth generously shared these photos with us after her visit to the restaurant and I guarantee as great as these shots are her food shots will have you salivating.

This place looks fabulous. Absolutely loving the living wall made with all the terracotta planters!

Didn't Masterchef Australia have a challenge here last season?

Fun use of materials, textures and color. I just hope no one got an armpit hair in their salad.

That's such a cool pop up! Have you tried it?

Evelisa says:

This is amazing. I have to agree with Allison the living wall is also my favorite.

Todd says:

MFWF… This festival is on my bucket list! AND, the Formula1 race takes place simultaneous to this!

It's like extra hot fudge on my sundae!!!

As always, keep up the great work.
