In order to be able and continue to live affordably in the city of Amsterdam, a group of young people have joined forces and set up a Housing Cooperative; The Torteltuin. Apart from high sustainability ambitions, sharing functions is key. 

A large greenhouse has been incorporated in the center of the building. This is the central common area. All collected heat will be stored and returned to the building when necessary. The greenhouse has room for a library, bar, communal kitchens and a stage.
