Installed in April-May 2010, this simple extensive green roof features sedum reflexum “blue spruce” and sedum spurium “dragon’s blood” to complement the paint colour of the main house. This urban studio building, built in 2005, was designed for study, display and storage. The bright space receives indirect illumination through a system of narrow light coffers surrounding the building?s perimeter. This project is part of a series of building and landscape interventions on the same site as the Craven Road House completed ten years earlier for the same client. The Studio, seen below, won a Governor General’s Medal for Architecture, the highest architectural design award in Canada, in 2010.
