    This paper briefly describes how semantic information interoperability helps in the development and evolution of smart spaces, to exemplify these things we have implemented and videoed a Smart Green House demonstration. The purpose of the demonstration is to illustrate how information semantics can make an InterOperability Platform (IOP), how the IOP supports interoperability, context based quality management at run-time, and how to manage the incremental development and evolution of smart spaces by means of ontologies. The Smart Green House demonstrator contains a miniature greenhouse, several sensors and actuators, and two different user groups (gardeners and customers) utilising information with their mobile devices from the shared information storage of the greenhouse smart space.
