The Raleigh Workshop was constructed in a small space adjacent to a home. The design of the structure focused on having as little impervious surface as possible to control stormwater runoff. A green roof was decided upon early in the process which allowed for the design of a structure with the capability of supporting the required weight of the green roof. Six inches of growing medium was used to allow for deeper roots and larger, more upright plants. An assortment of flowering perennials, grasses, and evergreen species were used in the planting to provide for visual diversity and year round interest.
