City rooftops are ripe to be transformed into vibrant green spaces. To kick off the process in Melbourne, the city council’s Committee for Melbourne has supported the new Growing Up project, launched to retrofit a green roof to a CBD building. Bent Architecture won the design competition established for the project, and the 10-storey office building at 131 Queen Street was chosen as a site— the furthest nominated location from any green space in the CBD. KHD and Green Roof technologies have been involved in creating the green space as part of the 0,000 project, and are now working together to provide end-to-end design, construction and maintenance services for green roofs. Green roofs can increase biodiversity and air quality, in addition to saving building owners on cooling costs and acting as a natural water-treatment facility that reduces stormwater flow. They also improve cityscape aesthetics, by creating rooftop oases in the midst of the concrete jungle.
