The project evolved around the reuse and reinvention of two 40-year-old greenhouse structures. New energy efficient glazing systems were added to the existing steel structures to provide a more supportive environment for the butterfly and ethnobotony pavilions. Public multi-purpose space was used to inter-connect a combined tea house/chapel, a banquet hall and education spaces. Designed to meet LEED® Silver Standards.
