Green Roofs Case Study 02
Our second green roof case study is a residential side infill extension. Here at Rugby Road in Brighton a side infill extension serves to transform a space initially comprised of several small rooms. It does so with the introduction of several key features. These are the introduction of a large glass screen that merges into a rooflight with a frameless glass to glass detail. A key feature of the project. A green sedum roof completes the composition, within which the elegant rooflight sits surrounded by a lead surround. This is small sedum roof but works very well and provides a pleasing view from the upper storey windows that might otherwise looked down upon a felt of GRP roof. It serves to help the extension merge into its garden setting. Sedum roofs can now be created using simple trays with sedum within set over a waterproof layer which can be simpler to effect than the sedum blanket that would previously been rolled out and cut to fit.
