Green Roof Home


A new secondary dwelling nestles into the sandstone on this steep, densely bushy block, which also contains an older-style house, built by the owner’s grandparents. The self-contained secondary house is topped with a dramatic, cantilevered green roof with impressive district and city views. This grassed roof connects to the main house, bringing usable outdoor space to this site for the first time.


The old house is currently being extensively reconfigured to create a sustainable, contemporary family home.
