Greenhouse by Joost, Sydney: A Photo Tour

Greenhouse by Joost is the latest pop-up restaurant that sends an eco-friendly nudge across Sydney. Designed by Dutch-born architect Joost Bakker from Melbourne, the restaurant/art installation is built out of recycled materials and promotes sustainability and a waste-free philosophy.

We briefly reviewed Greenhouse by Joost on our other website after we dropped in to the Campbell Cove location for an impromptu coffee.
