ROOFmatters made different (architectural) proposals for the realisation of multifunctional green roofs in Milan.
We made concept designs for various investors in Milan that already in their businessconcept focus on sustainability of the building, both on social, economical and environmental level. Also we are invited by Ambiente Italia to support them in the CLEVER Cities project.
In the gallery below an overview of the projects. Contact us for more information or project proposals.
Designing multifunctional green roofs and realising projects
CLEVER Cities Milano
"CLEVER Cities project aims to drive a new kind of nature-based urban transformation for sustainable and socially inclusive cities."
Ambiente Italia asked us to support them in the excecution of the action lab dedicated to green roofs and green walls. The main objectives of this lab are creating awareness of the potential amongst professionals and citizens and aument the number of green roofs and walls in Milan.
Clever Cities is a project financed by horizon2020.
CLEVER Cities Milano,
2018 - 2023
The Milanese SGR InvestiRE asked ROOFmatters to make a proposal for the roof of the supermarket in a neighborhood still under construction. The intention was to open the roof for the neighbors and give them a place for social interaction.
After seeing the structural designs for the project and consulting HARPO Verde Pensile, we realised that the only feasible solution would be the installation of the extensive green roof. We suggested this as the solution to the client.

Refurbishment and roofgardens
The Milanese SGR InvestiRE asked us to help them to develop a concept for roofgardens on a huge refurbishment project. Five office buildings that had actually never been finished, where about to be turned into residencies, both sales and rental.
The project was just in the initial phase, so we decided to share first of all some considerations to the project manager in order to help make them some decisions in the further project.
The project is still in the design phase.

Landscape your city
Our proposal for participation at the Design Language exhibition held at the Scuola Spinelli, near the Tortona and Navigli district in Milan. We created a proposal for an abstract city, composed by wooden towers that had green on their roofs and along their facades.
Unfortunately due to time shortage and the difficulty to cover the expenses the project remained in the sketch phase.
