It is perhaps not surprising that the owners of this mud brick house in inner city Melbourne commissioned Hamish Knox and Associates to incorporate a Green Roof as part of an extensive renovation project.

The house, which is heritage listed, gained a second story extension as part of this project and a Green Roof over the existing residence.

The beauty of this project is that the Green Roof serves a number of functions –

  • It provides thermal benefits for the existing, 1st story home
  • A great aesthetic and view for 2nd story glassed areas
  • A viable and easily accessible vegetable garden for the residents

KHD supplied VersiJack in a box gutter to support the Versicell growing medium.

Designer – Hamish Knox & Associates
Green Roof Contractor – Gary Simpson, Infinite Landscapes
