Quay West


Quay West


  • Natural Habitats were the New Zealand pioneers in Green Roof construction starting in 1994
  • How a Green Roof can add value to your building

Natural Habitats designed and built New Zealand’s first Green Roof enabling Quay West to add an additional five floors to its development. This equated to $4 million in real estate value.

This green roof is designed as a miniature version of the harbour it overlooks. Islands of planting and established pohutakawa mimic the form of Auckland’s iconic isles such as Browns, Waiheke and Rangitoto.
