Royal Botanical Garden, Kuwait

Royal Botanical Garden, Kuwait

The Bicentenary Glasshouse at Wisley Garden in London is often visited by delegations from abroad. In Kuwait, it was decided to build a similar botanical glasshouse in the gardens of the Emir’s Bayan Palace.

An ambitious conceptual plan was developed and illustrated in a Flipper Book.

The second design conforms more to the available budget. The glasshouse has six climate zones with the appropriate plants and trees.

In the central component:

  • A mountain and rock garden with a large waterfall
  • A Mediterranean European garden

In the left-hand component:

  • A desert garden
  • A Central European garden

In the right-hand component:

  • A tropical garden
  • A tropical forest garden

The indoor temperature is kept within limits using special double glazing, shading and cooling.
