|The Schl?ssle Galerie in Pforzheim, Germany offers visitors over 75,000 sf (7,000 m?) of park-like space over an urban shopping mall - three levels of shops with a green roof/park that ties in with a part of the city located on higher ground that now fulfils a recreational function for residents of the city centre.|
The greenroof in the heart of Pforzheim connects workers back to nature with areas for recreation and relaxation. The green roof offers various playground items, numerous eating areas and even a cafeteria. The Schl?ssle Galerie, Pforzheim was the recipient of the FBB -Fachvereinigung Bauwerksbegr?nung e.V. (Professional Green Roof Association) - Green Roof of the Year Award for 2006.
|The intensive living roof utilizes both a three and four layer greenroof system from Optigr?n international. The roof surface is pitched, which is why there are various build-up heights to cope with the incline and the different plant locations. The green roof build-up levels measure between 50 cm to more than 110 cm in height.|
