Klimaatark is an environmental education centre which merges completely with the Polder landscape. The traditional Dutch dike is reinvented as a system to produce, store and share heat, water and energy. PV cells and small scale windmills produce all the energy it needs. Rainwater collected on top of the dike is purified by a sand filter. The house in front functions as a showcase.
