THIS RESTAURANT IS 20 YEARS AHEAD OF ITS TIME, ASK US WHY?
Owned by the Shoreditch Trust and developed in collaboration with Think.Eat.Drink, Waterhouse Restaurant offers delicious, simple, ethical and organic food in a restaurant specially designed and built with the environment in mind.
Waterhouse Restaurant consumes no carbon and only uses renewable hydroelectric power. The room uses the ambient water temperature from the Regents Canal, combined with the latest electrical heat pump technology, to provide a cooling and heating system that is both practical and ecologically sound.
With various innovative measures having already been successfully pioneered at Acorn House, the waste management system at Waterhouse is comprehensive. Wormeries digest raw food, a hot compostor manages the garden's waste, and experimental bokashi systems transform cooking oil into a compostable substance.
Energy saving measures include the installation of 90% recyclable hydrocarbon fridges, which use only 30% of the normal power requirement.
As far as possible materials used in the restaurant fit out were sourced sustainably and all paint used in decoration is organic and contains low volumes of chemicals. The restaurant uses no chemicals in its cleaning, opting instead for state of the art microfibre cleaning cloths and biological enzymes.
