Tao Yuan Aquaponics Greenhouse
The owners of the popular Tao Yuan restaurant in Brunswick looked to DMA to design an aquaponics greenhouse on an abandoned foundation, originally designed for a townhouse. After receiving approval from the historic committee for a greenhouse that sits on the edge of a commercial and residential district.
In the basement, along with a small parking lot, fish in large tanks help provide nutrients for the plants in the greenhouse. The plants help clean the water that is sent back to the basement.
The first floor has a large commercial kitchen supporting a bakery and wine shop (currently under construction), as well as offices.
