INTRA GROW YOUR OWN is an innovative project that aims to revolutionise the way the people of Kent approach food production and consumption. Designed as a space for learning, the primary focus of the proposal is to encourage residents to grow their own fresh produce and, in turn, improve their health and well-being.
By learning healthy habits from a young age, the project hopes to reduce the prevalence of unhealthy takeaway options and promote sustainable living.
The proposed building not only addresses food miles but also offers a solution to the rising cost of living crisis. The buildings organic form is influenced by its function of growing. The restaurant and market creates opportunities for visitors to experience local produce, promoting tourism within the area and generating employment opportunities for the community.
