Greenhouse café is a café and restaurant integrated inside one of Israel's largest plant nurseries. The café was built right under one of the large greenhouse roofs that make up "Wendy's" plant nursery, using the greenhouse's structural elements. The metal columns were covered with wood and large glass walls were erected between them. The northern façade opens up to a view of a dense garden with local plant life and a waterfall. The space between the PVC tarps and the café's ceiling insulates thermally and hides the air-conditioning units. Greenhouse café enjoys several different dining areas with different microclimates caused by the surrounding plants. Hidden from the street and among the plants is a tasty little "green" escape from the city.
