The Boathouse Trboje is simple structure build to provide catering to all those who spend time doing sports on the Sava River (kayaking, supping,…) as well as for those who like countryside cycling and stop here to relax for a while in the cool shadows on the trees.

Totally incorporated green roof

The Boathouse Trboje is simple structure build to provide catering to all those who spend time doing sports on the Sava River (kayaking, supping,…) as well as for those who like countryside cycling and stop here to relax for a while in the cool shadows on the trees.

The owner wanted to embed nature in to the project in order to minimize the disturbance to this area. The structure is lightweight, designed from wood so owner was looking also for a lightweight, easy and quickly to install green roof solution that should require minimal maintenance. The prerequisite was also to totally incorporate green roof in to the wooden structure without and visible non-natural elements like edge profiles or other green roof edge elements.

The solution for the challenge was Urbanscape Green Premium High system with high storm-water retention capacity which can provide sufficient water storage during the long dry summer periods. It was set-up on root-resistant EPDM waterproofing membrane, installed by investor and hand cut to follow the roof edge curvature. The roof is a great fusion with the surroundings and has a passive cooling effect.
