The Greenhouse That Grows Legs, by BAT Studio

322-BAT-Greenhouse-001-low res

The Greenhouse That Grows Legs has been designed by architect BAT Studio and built in Wraysbury, Middlesex.

The building is sited in an area which experiences frequent flooding and incorporates a unique flood defence system in the form of hydraulic “legs” that raise the building out of the reach of damaging floodwaters.

Constructed around a steel frame the building incorporates four integral hydraulic legs, enabling it to be raised 800mm above the ground if a flood warning has been issued.
