Ecotelhado Colombia [1] is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Bogotá topped with a green rooftop garden [2]. An intensive renovation transformed the roof of the 50-year-old building into a verdant space that reduces the urban heat island effect. The garden was made from 1.6 tons of recycled material [3] from the shoe industry, and it’s capable of retaining 11.5 cubic meters of rainwater.
