The designer’s description

Modern houses are often built without a basement while a lot of people nowadays feel the need for one: they’re focused on healthy food and, for example, grow their own food or buy in bulk at the local organic farmer.

The Ground Fridge is a basement as a product. An innovative version of the traditional root cellar, for the new cosmopolitan with its own vegetable garden and a modern self-sufficient existence.

The Ground Fridge makes use of the insulating effect of the ground and the cooling effect of the groundwater.

The temperature in the fridge remains stable throughout the year between 10 and 12° C: the ideal temperature for the storage of, for example, fruit, vegetables, wine and cheese.

The spherical Ground Fridge is buried and covered with the excavated earth. This layer of soil is about one meter thick and insulating so the temperature inside the fridge barely varies. There’s no permit required to place the Ground Fridge, and no soil to be disposed.

The Ground Fridge is equipped with wooden shelves for storage.
