Green Roof On An Art School In Singapore

Green Roof On An Art School In Singapore

In one of the most stellar displays of how green buildings can be drop-dead beautiful, the 5-story School of Art, Design & Media at Nanyang Technological University campus, Singapore sports an awe-inspiring verdant turfed that flows from the ground to the top of its arching shape.

Designed by CPG Consultants Pte Ltd, not only does this green roof look amazing, it helps to insulate the building, regulate outside temperature and it even harvests rainwater for landscaping irrigation. Along with the other advances it provides, the roofs are also built as informal gathering areas, making them even more functional and inspirational.

I can’t think of a more inspiring design I’ve seen for an art school. Not only the shape, but the function of the building design with it’s flowing curves, cement-sand screeded floors, timber railings and neutral palette on the interiors, help to build and support and amazingly inspiring and creative space. Bravo.
