A greenhouse for The Iceman Wim Hof

He stood in a tub of ice for 1 hour, 44 minutes and 22 seconds and rapidly climbed Kilimanjaro wearing only shorts. Dutchman Wim Hof, aka The Iceman, uses special experiments to test the limits of his body. For his new training venue, adequate climate control and contact with nature is very important to him. No wonder he is going for a greenhouse.

Wim Hof has broken many records facing the cold, under the applause of admirers worldwide. His challenges also attract the attention of scientists worldwide. The Iceman has shown what the human body is capable of once you set your body and mind to it. For example, he sits in ice baths for hours and ascends the Kilimanjaro wearing suspiciously little clothing.

Physical abilities
Although Wim Hof still finds it a challenge to improve his own performance, now he mainly wants to show others the many physical capabilities that we are not using. With proper training and exercises anyone can make their body stronger and more resistant to diseases. Of this he is convinced. Many people, including many celebrities, are already following his workouts and exercises and benefitting from it.

For the training environment of The Iceman it is important to be at one with nature and still be able to perfectly control the climate. To better facilitate these people and create a good indoor-outdoor feeling, a plan was devised thanks to the horticultural sector. Because where can you do this better than in a greenhouse?

Plans and designs have been made in collaboration with Dutch companies IWT architects and Reytec Innovation projects. Old barns and halls will be completely stripped and rebuilt. The large hall will serve as a greenhouse. It will be coated with greenhouse profiles in which insulation glass will be fitted. The roof will have wide span continuous vents to ensure a large ventilation capacity. A variety of temperatures can be achieved in combination with the large sliding doors.

In combination with the obvious nice ice bath, a stay in the beautiful greenhouse complex should be quite enjoyable.
