WT AWARD 2018 - SUSTAINABILITY
Green-roof home concept project provides a small family the resources to grow all of their own food for a self-sufficient lifestyle whilst establishing a harmonious dialogue between the living and working spaces in the home. The house will become a living organism that will transform as the seasons' pass, sculpted by nature. Continuing the relation with nature, the roof of the house will be a landscape in itself; two peaks in opposite corners will form mountains that a valley will run through. The ascending roof will also facilitate rainwater harvesting that channels the water to the ground to be reused on dry days for the plants. The design has been integrated with flexible greenhouses for the winter months and gardening planters for herbs, vegetables and fruit on the roof.
