Project: Commercial & International, Public Gardens, Work in Progress

Opened in 1923, Gothenburg Botanic Garden is a world-leading botanic garden, and spread over 430 acres with more than 16,000 species, it is also one of the largest botanic gardens in Europe.

Harris Bugg Studio has been appointed to work with the botany team and consulting architects COBE to design the layouts, structures and features of a series of new world-class botanic glasshouses, including two at three stories high.

The glasshouses each have different characters, from tropical to temperate, from fire to desert. There are opportunities to get up close to plants, whether on the ground or via a series of walkways that pass through the canopies.

This project is moving into technical design in mid-2022.
