The Eco Friendly Club - Greenhouse - New York

Oh dear where is spring? It's snowing again today in London. For once I thought it's going to be warm as Spring is approaching, but I'm afraid London weather is always unpredictable. Let's just hope this will be the last week of cold and wet.

Been cracking my head working on one very exquisite residential that I have ever come across. Was browsing through the internet and I found this very interesting Club in New York.


The greenhouse in New York promotes nighlife destination and the first eco-friendly nightclub. A bi-level 8,000 square foot nightclub, lounge and event space built from recycled or recyclable materials. Greenhouse relaunched in January 2012 and went the extra route to receive L.E.E.D (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, which is awarded by the United States Green Buildings Council for environmentally conscious construction and design. Owners NBA Star Larry Hughes, Barry Mullineaux and Jed Stiller have worked creatively to amplify the eco-look of the space.






The Greenhouse is designed to be a unique 'green' experience. One of Greenhouse's most spectacular attributes is the transparent ceiling fixture, comprised of over 5,000 individually hung crystals, which is designed to emulate a rolling landscape. The bars are clear recycled glass panaroma designs, which displays lush natural stones. With two floors and two separate sound systems.

Healthy cooking


Creating the perfect cooking zone in today's modern kitchen not only involve choosing an suitable oven or hob, but it can also include specifying a state-of-the-art steam oven.

Steam oven make life easier when entertaining guest or cooking for a large family and the method of steaming food is particularly useful when you want to prepare healthy meals quickly, without any fuss.

For example baking a chicken with an traditional oven could take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 2 hours, but putting the same chicken in a steam oven set at 212 degrees and we are looking at a cook time of 20 minutes.

Steam oven offers a healthy way to prepare food as no extra fat or oil needed.

Food is sealed quickly to keep important vitamins and minerals in so valuable nutrients aren't lost during the cooking process, this makes it the perfect low-fat solution for health- conscious foodies.

Another advantage of steam-cooked dishes is that they retain their size and texture.

the steam process doesn't transfer food odours between dishes, so you can cook sweet and savoury meals in the oven at the same time.



Steam oven manufacturer to consider- Miele, Gaggenau or Kuppersbusch.
