INTRA GLASSHOUSE is a mixed use project. The primary uses contain an aquaponics farm, urban cultivation spaces, a kitchen and training facilities for these. There are also issues with unemployment, isolation, mental health problems, low education levels and addiction. These are often intertwined. Locals also live alongside ex-servicemen who also struggle with these issues, many of which on average go into skills based, dextrous labour. However it is noted they look after sun pier by keeping it clean. It is also apparent there is diverse entrepreneurial and creative local culture. The vision is to create spaces to provide for local people, to be self producing and provide healthy, accessible food to a community deprived of such. As well as interior and exterior spaces for a food market; coinciding with the trinket market at Sun Pier House Community Centre.
