The Vertical Farm Scientific Centre will be a gateway building for the Sneinton Market area of Nottingham, creating one of the first vertical farming centres in the Midlands.
The building will be dedicated to indoor farming, research on new and improved methods of growing, an educational space for learning about vertical farming, a cafeteria, and an organic produce shop for the community.
The main feature of the building is on the south facing side, with a curtain wall shielded by wooden louvres displaying the vertical farms. To power the farms with artificial lighting, research was conducted into optimizing PV panel systems to provide sustainable energy.
