Mosler Lofts

Designed and built in collaboration with Mithun Architects and The Schuster Group, Mosler Lofts is the first condominium development in Seattle to receive silver LEED certification. Located in the Belltown District of Downtown Seattle, this urban ecological model serves as the northern portal to Seattle’s Greenstreets and a poignant connection between nature and the urban environment. By reintroducing habitat to a previously un-vegetated site, the water efficient, low maintenance landscapes adorn the building from ground level to the rooftop, conveying stormwater into the planted areas, encouraging infiltration and transpiration into the natural system while easing the burden on the urban watershed. The 3,000 square foot rooftop with stunning views of Downtown, people can experience the value of an urban garden while enjoying regional views of mountains, water and islands. The living roof provides residents with social gathering spaces, such as a fire circle, and provides the building itself with added insulation, stormwater retention and filtration. By providing landscape on street level, and a rooftop garden, this project gives the public and homeowners many opportunities to enjoy and connect with nature in the urban setting.

Thanks. Would it be possible for you to supply me with their contact details? Or if you could please forward them the water proofing question.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Unsung Garden Hero: Fantastic Foliage
Contemporary style. Contemporary planting is again shown at its best with this roof garden. The precise planting shows us how restrictive and repetitive planting works best. Most leaves have differing colors on their upper and lower surfaces, perhaps green on top and gray beneath, so gardens prone to wind will get the benefit of an ever-changing kaleidoscope of colors.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Living Roofs Crown Green Design
Garden in the sky. This rooftop garden shows another approach to creating garden space in the domain usually dominated by air conditioners and other mechanical components. The building has to be designed from the ground up to accomodate the weight of the garden and manage stormwater. Tough, year-round plants in 18-inch-high planters require little maintenance. Planter walls provide seating; pavers set over a suspended infrastructure and a killer view make this space popular with building tenants.More:So Your Style Is: GreenEasy Green: 10 Ways Toward a Zero-Energy Home
