Stepping Green House

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
During the coronavirus pandemic expanding and social distancing implemented,these matters have greatly affected people's lives and activities. This is a time that helps us realize many practical things in life and makes us «aspiring» to many things that seem ordinary before. Aspiring for the sunlight shining through the trees,the wind blowing through the door,the food that used to make us nauseous... Those desires are the inspiration and the material of our Stepping Green project.
Stepping Green House is a housing project combined with an agricultural garden on the roof to meet the demand for clean vegetables, especially in the context of the COVID19 epidemic causing serious food shortages. Gardens provide a variety of clean foods, which are the main source for the family's daily meals, contribute to preserving and developing the agricultural lifestyle in parallel with the context of urbanization. Agricultural products are also used to exchange with neighbors to create community relationships.
