What’s sprouting up more and more on buildings around the world? Living roofs.
Resilient varieties of succulents, grasses, wildflowers and herbs make these green designs both beautiful and self-sustaining. Structural layers include a waterproof membrane and levels for drainage, insulation, and filtering. Environmentally friendly design never looked so lush.
These gardens have the power to absorb carbon dioxide, reduce storm water runoff and limit heat absorption – not to mention providing vibrant habitats for insects, birds, and other wildlife. In fact, some cities are offering tax incentives to install living roofs. We would love to more sustainable architecture design in San Luis Obispo.
Prepare to be amazed at these stunning examples from San Francisco to Singapore.
