What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Houzz Tour: Cabin Studios in the Landscape
The roof's role in both the landscape and architecture of the site and design is a unique aspect of this project. Because of the necessary terracing, the roof of the lower cabin (the yoga studio), is the initial site experience. The green roof is really the curb appeal of the property — the first facade of the design. Hook took this opportunity to treat the roof as a canvas, more so than a typical green roof, and designed it as a living piece of art, full of succulents and other plants found throughout the project.
Christine Tusher added this to How to Install a Green Roof
First steps: Once your contractor has installed and water tested the membrane, your roof is ready to be planted. There are two ways to do this: Use a modular system of planted living roof trays.Add soil and plant your roof as though it were a garden in the ground, as shown here.
10. Install a green roof. Green roofs add insulation to a home, which can help cut down energy costs, and they can reduce runoff pollution. Oh, and of course, they look amazing.Full story: See how to install a green roof

March 18, 2015
What is a green roof?A green or living roof is simply one that’s covered in vegetation. They can be full-blown gardens – known as ‘intensive’ green roofs – but the classic set-up we’re used to seeing on residential properties is a shallow expanse of low-growing plants, or an ‘extensive’ green roof. Extensive roofs are made up of a series of layers: a protecting layer covers the (waterproofed) roof, followed by a drainage board, which contains lots of little cups – rather like an egg box – to hold the water. There’s a filtration layer so the plants don’t get waterlogged??, a substrate layer, then the vegetation.
