Alpine House
The house provides sustainable, energy efficient growing environment for Kew's collection of alpine plants. The glass house is conceived as two back-to-back arches which create a stack effect to draw warm air out of the building. Shading is provided by a fan shaped system of blinds which is likened to a peacock's tail.
