After two and a half years of planning and design, we here at Greenroofs.com are delighted to release the first phase of our brand new website shortly.  In honor of the individual who made this happen financially, Emilio Ambasz, Hon FAIA, it’s our pleasure to showcase one of his many outstanding living architecture projects this week.

Greenroofs.com is the proud recipient of a grant from the renown green architect’s Legacy Emilio Ambasz Foundation, or LEAf.

Emilio Ambasz’s philosophy of “The Green Over the Gray,” or the landscape over the building, is evident in every piece of his iconic body of work with his firm, Emilio Ambasz & Associates.  The Venice-Mestre Hospital (Ospedale dell’Angelo Mestre or Angel Hospital) epitomizes this concept of covering the surface area of the built structure with more vegetation than its original footprint.

The Venice-Mestre Hospital is a fantastic example of considering every aspect of the site and then designing structures that not only blend seamlessly into their surroundings, but also create iconic structures while embracing living architecture.

Mini Description & Details

Considered the most technologically advanced health facility in Italy and at the forefront of healthcare in Europe, the campus of the Venice-Mestre Hospital (Ospedale dell’Angelo Mestre – Angel Hospital) includes the equally important and architecturally stunning Veneto Eye Bank Foundation, both designed by Emilio Ambasz and Alberto Altieri.

Covering a surface of 260,000 m2, the architects’ “Therapy Park” concept sees strategic design of the landscape as a green element that surrounds, incorporates and crosses the new hospital structure, so that it becomes an integral part of the interior spaces as well.  The Landscape Garden surrounds the hospital complex.  It contains woods, lakes, hills and an area called “the meadow,” a large roof garden linking the hospital block with the supplies department building.

Aerial: Studio Altieri, via e-architect.

Completed at a cost of approximately 500 million euros, the Venice-Mestre Hospital is a general care hospital with 680 patient care beds with seven floors above ground level plus two underground floors.

Visitors arriving by car or train enter the hospital on the Central Garden, a gently sloping green ramp under which all cars are parked.  These below grade and daylight greenroof areas are organized into sedum and meadow lawns planted with bands of flowering shrubs and ground cover, linked by footpaths.

Its signature striking glass-faced pyramid atrium, stretching along the 180-meter length of the building, contains the in-patient block that emerges from a much more extensive services and outpatient block, which is covered with greenery.

Visitors enter directly into the Grand Lobby, the overstructure atrium courtyard, which is created by the overhangs of floors.  Above, patient rooms face onto the atrium filled with light and lush tropical plants – like in a huge greenhouse.

As the six building floors shift to one side as it rises, private garden terraces are created.  Every patient has direct views to plants and trees in front of their windows as well as long perspectives onto the surrounding fields.

The exquisitely designed Venice-Mestre Hospital and Veneto Eye Bank Foundation together create living architecture as ecosystem service providers, blending biophilia seamlessly with the user experience.

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week for August 27, 2018: Pennsylvania State Capitol East Wing Plaza

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week: August 27, 2018

Overstructure plazas are rather commonplace within state and federal governments, with parking space usually found below.  Many times they are just solid concrete.  Then why not install vegetation and public parklike space over these public areas when possible with greenroofs?

Of course, many governmental entities have done just that.  By doing so, a wide array of social gathering places have been created that offer so many environmental, health, and reintroduction of nature benefits to the urban fabric.

Pennsylvania State Capitol East Wing Plaza

And, in return, the government property’s life span has just increased incredibly making the investment economically sound as well!  Kudos to the many ecologically civic-minded governments and their constituents across the globe.

The Pennsylvania State Capitol building certainly is “a priceless architectural and artistic treasure, a majestic symbol of history and power, and an icon of democracy and freedom,” (PACapitol.com) and the Pennsylvania State Capitol East Wing Plaza is a particularly beautiful and sensitive greenroof project.

Pennsylvania State Capitol East Wing Plaza

Mini Description & Details

Completed in 1906, the beautiful Beaux-Arts style Pennsylvania State Capitol is the sprawling home to Pennsylvania’s state government, sitting on the southwestern area of Harrisburg upon a broad hill facing westward toward the Susquehanna River.  The East Wing is a 1987 Complex addition designed by Celli-Flynn Brennan in the post-modern style of the Italian Renaissance.

Recently, the entire complex underwent an over $19 million project renovation.  Designed by Vitetta Architects & Engineers, the new Pennsylvania State Capitol East Wing includes a new intensive greenroof built into the main plaza which frames the Pennsylvania War Veterans’ Memorial Fountain, the building, and the Capitol Dome.

The building renovation provided modern green roof technology in place of an aging, legacy green roof on a project originally installed more than three decades ago.  The East Wing required new waterproofing below the paver and pedestal system on top of the underground garage and about half of the project included planters and 40,000 square feet of vertical surfaces.

The waterproofing solutions were provided by Tremco Commercial Sealants & Waterproofing.

All of the landscaping and existing site soils covering over 260,000 square feet of area were removed.  To stand up to the test of time, rooflite® engineered a new custom soil blend that was both efficient and cost effective, the rooflite intensive 800.

299 tractor trailer loads of growing media were pneumatically installed.

The classic majesty of Pennsylvania Capitol’s East Wing was restored, with sweeping walkways of granite pavers, seating areas, and planting beds with a multitude of trees and flowering bushes and perennials complementing the Renaissance Revival architecture.  Veterans’ Memorial Fountain, located behind the East Wing, generates computerized water displays for visitors and state workers during warm months.

Logistics were a special challenge for this National Historic Landmark because Congress was in session throughout the installation, but the Pennsylvania State Capitol is thriving and bringing nature to the East Wing Plaza for visitors, legislators, and the public alike.

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week for August 13, 2018: Hobbiton Movie Set

Hobbiton Movie Set

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week: August 13, 2018

Have you seen the Hobbit-like home in Pawling, New York that’s currently on the market?  Read my new “Hobbit Hollow for Sale in Upstate New York” to learn more about the earth sheltered passive house.  And, since the beloved furry-footed Hobbit dwellings are in the news once more, we’re featuring their “real” home: The Hobbiton™ Movie Set as our Project of the Week again.

Kia ora – Welcome to New Zealand!

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Hobbiton Movie Set

As a lifelong fan of The Lord of the Rings (LOTR) books and subsequent epic fantasy adventure movies, I naturally was extremely excited when I was in Auckland, New Zealand in 2014.  I was invited to speak at a private function organized by Graham Cleary of Natural Habitats and was overjoyed at the prospect of finally visiting Hobbiton, the movie set located on the North Island where Sir Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings (New Line Cinema) and The Hobbit (Warner Brothers) trilogies were partially filmed.

Hobbiton Movie Set

New Zealand, Aotearoa in Maori, is a beautiful, magical country with varied landscapes – gorgeous rocky beaches with beautiful shells; lush, oversized vegetation reminiscent of a land of the lost look like throwbacks to prehistoric times; rolling green hills dotted with grazing sheep; magnificent mountains with soaring jagged peaks; stunning lakes; and so much more.

Hobbiton Movie Set

Aramis and I spent about a week here on the North Island with Natural Habitats’ Graham and Louise Cleary as hosts at their lovely coastal home on the Great Barrier Island followed by a couple of days in Auckland where I had the pleasure of speaking to about 100 professionals at The Northern Club, ending in our visit to mythical Hobbiton, the highlight of my trip (Aramis is not the huge fan that I am, however even he loved it!).

Hobbiton Movie Set

As luck would have it, at the time Graham’s company was creating a greenwall for Peter Jackson and his studio, Wingnut Films Productions Limited.  At first he tried to have us visit that project, but timing didn’t allow it…so Graham arranged for a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the Hobbiton™ Movie Set from one of Wingnut Films Productions crew – Brian Massey, the Academy Award-winning art director, no less, from the LOTR!  You can imagine my geeky excitement!

Mini Description & Details

The vivid descriptions of the peaceful, merry, and diminutive Hobbits in J.R.R. Tolkien’s books have been brought to life through the magic of both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movie trilogies directed by New Zealander Peter Jackson.

Situated within the picturesque 1,250 acre Alexander sheep farm on New Zealand’s North Island, the 12-acre Hobbiton™ Movie Set represents Tolkien’s vision of the idyllic Middle-earth village of the Shire.

In 1999 a temporary movie set was constructed by Wingnut Films Productions for the multi-award winning The Lord of The Rings trilogy with a total of 37 smials, or Hobbit holes, nestled within the bucolic countryside. The original set was largely deconstructed afterwards, but was permanently rebuilt in 2011 for The Hobbit trilogy.

Forty-four unique earth-sheltered Hobbit homes were constructed of stone, concrete and brick, covered with native grasses and clovers and surrounded by gardens and orchards farmed for fresh produce. There are approximately 2.3km (and growing) of hedges and 30 – 200 plants around each Hobbit house and 1.2km of hedges and mature Hobbit-scale trees were sourced from all over the local countryside.

There are over 50 staff on a permanent basis – up to 180 staff over the peak period – at the Hobbiton™ Movie Set, including 7 – 8 gardeners during height of season and 5 in the winter.

Accessible only by tour, the Hobbiton™ Movie Set is now a permanent passive attraction complete with rolling greenroofed Hobbit holes, gardens, double arched bridge, thatched stone Mill and The Green Dragon™ Inn with its own distinctive thatched rolling roofs offering traditional Hobbit fare and exclusively crafted Southfarthing™ refreshments.

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week for July 30, 2018: Fenway Farms

Greenroofs.com Project of the Week: July 30, 2018

While enjoying the summer here in the suburbs of Atlanta, I remembered back three years ago when Aramis, one of my best friends D’Arcy Goldman, our daughter Anjuli, and our then 6-year old grandson Nicky had the pleasure of visiting Fenway Farms in Boston.  I figured this would be a great time to replay it.

On July 7, 2015 we were given a wonderful private tour by Brendan Shea of Recover Green Roofs, the company who designed and installed the Red Sox’s Fenway Park rooftop farm.

Fenway Farms

The early July temperature difference from the street below on Yawkey Way to the lush verdant field of crops above was palpable!  Part of an ongoing campaign by the Red Sox to exemplify and promote healthy and responsible ways of living, it felt (I didn’t actually measure) 10 degrees cooler as Brendan led us through the many rows of varied, colorful vegetables and flowers.

Nicky had a great time exploring the paths and wandering amongst the large leafy greens, and had quite a few questions of his own for Brendan, like how did they get those plants up onto the roof?

Fenway Farms

Fenway Farms

Brendan talked about their modular system filled with compost-based growing media, the smart irrigation system, their partner Green City Growers who provide all farm management services including planting and harvesting, and the bountiful harvest already grown since opening day on April 13 of 2015.

The Red Sox ownership is another great example of corporate leadership – a living testament to greening our built environment – this time above the world famous Fenway Park, the oldest baseball stadium in the U.S., and one of the greenest.

Fenway Farms

Afterwards we were treated to watching some of the Red Sox team warm up, and we ended our visit to Fenway Park with a lively game against our own Miami Marlins (who unfortunately lost).  Thank you again to Mark Winterer and Brendan Shea of Recover Green Roofs for a memorable tour of a fantastic project!

Mini Description & Details

Seeded atop the roof of the Red Sox front office and the Gate A entrance of Boston’s beloved Fenway Park, Fenway Farms is the 7,000 square foot rooftop garden designed to provide over 6,000 pounds of organic produce to ballpark attendees each year.

Since its completion for Opening Day on April 13, 2015, Fenway Farms has invigorated what was once an oddly shaped, unused roof into a thriving rooftop farm.

Fenway Farms

Fenway Farms

The transformation was initially conceived by Linda Pizzuti, wife of Boston Red Sox owner John Henry, as part of an ongoing campaign by the Red Sox to exemplify and promote healthy and responsible ways of living.

As such, the project was engineered with sustainability in mind on all levels, is highly visible to ballpark attendees, and has been included as a stop on the official Fenway Park tour.

Fenway Farms

Fenway Farms

Covered with a waterproofing membrane from Carlisle, Recover Green Roofs designed and built Fenway Farms using its Recover Aerated Media Module (RAAM) system, which features a series of 5-gallon non-woven fabric-lined crates made of 50% recycled plastic content.

Located long the 3rd base side of Fenway Park, the site is equipped with an automated Weathermatic Smartlink drip irrigation system to conserve water while supporting the farm’s rotating array of vegetables and herbs.  Crops are sown in locally sourced Vermont Compost Company soil, and Fenway EMC Chefs are incorporated into the process of selecting which plants will be grown each season.

They then utilize the weekly harvests in salads and fresh side dishes prepared in the EMC Club kitchen, incorporating a range of arugula, snap peas, and rosemary in the spring season to eggplant and potatoes come the summer months.

Fenway officials hope to teach fans and younger folks about the importance of sustainability and healthy living, and Fenway Farms is a tool for that education.
