Kalbod Studio Design : Iceland and a fascinating and delicious experience in the warm embrace of the greenhouse!
Icelandic restaurant-greenhouse is a multifunctional space that can accompany the audience with the process of agricultural production while serving as an international restaurant.
The main idea of creating restaurant-greenhouse spaces was to open up and make available the inherent potential of the land for agriculture. This opening to the light and being sheltered from the heat of the soil by providing the performance of greenhouses and also a view of the natural attractions of the region, provides the main goals of the competition.
According to the proposed area (up to 5000 square meters) for the project development plan, from the beginning of the design process, the necessary space for 6 modules and 1 half module of the greenhouse-restaurant type was considered.

Use of geothermal energy
In this structure, water is sent into the ground at a normal temperature by a pump, and after heating by natural geothermal energy, it enters the greenhouse space and provides the heat needed for agriculture. After heating the floors, the cooled water is sent back into the ground to be heated again for circulation in the greenhouse.
