Tropicalia Greenhouse in Northern France blends perfectly with surroundings

Tropicalia, a tropical greenhouse heated to 28°C, is spread over an area of 20,000 sqm on the Côte d’Opale, North of France. A true “bubble of harmony,” it reconnects visitors with the plant and animal world in a region where the climate is often harsh.

Tropicalia is a place of discovery, wonder, and awareness, an invitation to dream, travel and learn. It will be hosting rich and diverse flora and fauna: exotic flowers, butterflies, hummingbirds, Amazonian fish, turtles, caimans, water gardens, waterfalls, and ponds.

Beyond the exotic interior design, the feeling of immersion is reinforced by the architecture of the greenhouse. The absence of load-bearing posts and the presence of a vegetated peripheral wall accentuate the feeling of a cocoon. 

 The height of the dome allows the complete growth of the greenhouse trees as well as the creation of suspension bridges that will delight the youngest. The roof structure is made up of pressurized EFTE air cushions held in place by an aluminum frame.
