This roof needs to be more sustainable, more green, insulated and renovated. The roof has an existing terrace which needs to be temporarily removed so it can be insulated. In addition to this, the client would like his rooflight to be accessible. He also wishes to add green to the roof.

A beautiful terrace that gained more space because of the walk-on glass. The glass doesn’t only create more useable space outside, but it also brings more daylight into the living area below. There is a Wire Design Trellis system attached to the wall for climbers, this wall will turn into a great green wall over time. This wall, the planters and the palms are a nice contrast to the city. The roof was hard to reach, so a tower crane was needed to deliver the material to the exact location. Nevertheless, a lot of the material had to be brought by hand by our man.
