Living Roofs a Growing Phenomenon?

Zoë Avery, our very own Senior Planning, Landscape and Urban Design Rockstar here at 4Sight, spoke to Idealog magazine in 2018 about the growing phenomenon that is living roofs. According to Zoë, “living roofs have not taken off in Aotearoa – yet!”, but she hopes that her work on the living roof for the Hundertwasser Art Centre and Wairau Māori Art Gallery in Whangarei will be a step in the right direction.

With over 100 native and over 60,000 plants going into the living roof, its purpose is to not only create a beautiful, tranquil space for locals but to celebrate and reflect the unique history, culture and landscape that is specific to Aotearoa.
