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.
