Project Goals & Expectations

While making the best decision to update the entire building in a sustainable pursiut, the owner reached out to explore how to maximize their rooftop space. We worked with AWH Architects on a variety of options and within the owner’s budget. With a variety of collaborations, we partnered with Hanging Gardens, Sustology, and SunDial Solar to achieve this biodynamic, energy producing rooftop! With grant funding, we also incorporated an in situ research/monitoring station.
