Dubai Opera Garden

Dubai Opera Garden.

This Utility House next to Dubai Opera has been facing a challenge of weight restrains as originally it was not planned to include Green Roof which will serve also as a venue place. The traditional green roofs installed in Dubai are always extremely heavy as they use between 30 – 50 cm of local sweet soil which brings the weight up to 750 kg / m2.

 

A semi intensive green roof system 

With local team we have developed a semi-intensive green roof system which allows better plant growth than traditional green roofs. Utilizing combination of inorganic rock based multipurpose growing media in thickness of 4 cm allowed us to use only up to 10 cm of local sweet soil on top which consequently opened an opportunity to do the installation on this roof and not compromising the structure stability.

 Green Roof/Wall System: Single Source Provider

Number of Greenroofs / Walls on Property: 1
Roof/Wall Size: 3000

The provided system has lowered the weight of the green roof to less than 150 kg/m2 but at the same time also reducing the irrigation needs for up to 50%. The entire design has been redesigned to actually become a venue place where people can meet and enjoy the views over the Dubai Music Fountain.

Roof/Wall Slope: 2-5

Roof Accessibility/Amenity: Yes
Open to the Public: Yes

Designer:
NLME Consultants

 

Year: 2017

City: Dubai
