Popping out of the grassy pitch are two skylights channeling light into the art studio below. The thin cast concrete shell’s curvature appends the organic feel of the roof garden and reflects daylight evenly into the interior.

The retrofit included a substantial addition of insulation beneath the roof and outside of the exterior walls as well as a high efficiency boiler. Giving additional consideration to the new envelope insulation with the green roof, the building is as energy efficient as it is easy on the eye.

    Fantastic design. Introducing green space into the city is always welcome. Coupled with the sustainable benefits this is a wonderful idea that hopefully will spark similar designs.
