EATHOUSE in Tuinenfestival 2010, Appeltern, The Netherlands by de Stuurlui stedenbouw & Atelier GRAS!

February 27th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

A house and garden to eat, that you are able to touch, smell, taste, seed, weed, and harvest! EATHOUSE is a house in a garden that attracts visitors with delicious vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers. We want to seduce people and make them taste the edible garden and the edible house. EATHOUSE has a temporary character; it lasts a summer season. This is why all the materials used in EATHOUSE can be re-used for a new season of EATHOUSE at a different spot.
