09 Sep The Parc
- Semi-intensive Green Roofs (depth 100-400mm) can thrive years down the track
The Parc was one of the first Green Roofs of this size to be constructed in New Zealand in 2002 and may still be the largest at 3500m².
This park is a private sanctuary with expansive lawn areas and pool. The design is visually stunning viewed from the above apartments and provide a degree of separation and privacy for the apartments on the ground level.
The structure underneath the garden was designed to support extra weight around the edges of the lawn where extra depth in soil was required for the establishment of trees. Growing media was specifically manufactured to be lightweight, while the depth of the lawn within the centre of the park is only 100mm.
