The Green Roof Has Arrived

May 3rd, 2012 by Tim Delhey Eian

Passive House in the Woods Green Roof

The green roof on top of the garage has just been installed. I captured this image in the afternoon hours so it is a bit hard to make out the little plants with the shadows of the trees to the West obscuring the view. The early spring, warm temperatures and frequent rains should help it fill in quickly. This vegetated roof will be very pleasant to view during the ascent to the rooftop terrace, which was also partially planted.

On an unrelated note, I captured the image below of the shadows of the trees on the stucco of the West facade. I always liked how shadows animate the stucco facades and create an interesting visual interaction between the house and its natural surroundings.
