The roof is sloped to scuppers on the edge of the parapets and drains to downspouts. The liveroof system sits on top of this and freely drains. The decking is built on tapered PT sleepers that are cut to fit the slope of the roof below.

The flowers are from the variety of sedum used in the live roof system. www.liveroof.com

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 10 Ways to Bedeck Your Deck
Give a roof new purpose.Part deck, part planted roof. this kind of design helps lessen the amount of rainwater runoff.
Be prepared to have a little phone or email chat with yours truly if you're interested in having your patio or deck featured as a Patio of the Week. I promise it will be quick and painless.
Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to 6 Green-Roof Myths, Busted
This doesn't mean that all green-roof systems have to be built in, however. Some professionals in North America are using modular systems in their design specifications. For example, Aaron Kang-Crosby at Spore Design says the company used a modular system by LiveRoof for this roof deck, with sedum already grown in from a local nursery.(I personally have not seen these systems used in Europe, and I'm curious to hear what readers have to say about their performance.)
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The ‘Disappearing’ Guardrail
Planted borders. Creating areas that are off-limits or inaccessible due to plantings is another strategy to consider to eliminate the need for a guard.
