Roofing Case Study: Wings of Earth House

Bursts of color adorn this 3300 sq. ft. Living Roof located in Sonoma County, California. The broad sweeping roof planes inspired the planting scheme to resemble the patterns seen on the wings of butterflies. Overall, eleven species of plants (9 sp. of Sedums, plus Dianthus and Phlox) are configured in fields or waves and arranged according to shape, texture, size and color to create this striking visual impression.
