Salt & Water design studio presents their recent project, eco-barge with a greenhouse on the Danube river in Belgrade, Serbia.

The barge was designed as a place where citizens of Belgrade could get acquainted with vertical gardens, special kinds of irrigation systems and alternative ways of growing organic food in urban areas with usually limited space. The project is also designed as a venue for various educational workshops, where people can learn everything first-hand.

The model has no motor drive because it is designed to be anchored in a small marina. Yet, it does produce its own energy via two solar panels in the central area and four windmills on the roof. The energy is being used to provide lighting and power to the small technical room set inside. Since the barge is self-sustainable, there is no need for any other kind of powering besides the energy it produces itself.

The solar panels are being placed on the terrace because the barge can move around and, therefore, they can always be directed towards the Sun. Moreover, since the barge should be open to public and has the educational purpose, it is very useful to have the panels placed there so visitors can see for themselves how solar technology actually works.

We believe that sustainable and ecological projects like this one can make a strong environmental impact in busy urban areas.
