News“Green Roof of the Year 2021” Award

Max Planck Institute in Hamburg is the award-winner

Great news! The German Association of Building Greening (BUUG) has chosen the “Green Roof of the Year” and the winner is the accessible green roof of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg. Extensive roof gardens set new standards on around 2,440 m² and create special sojourn qualities.

Together with Landschaftsarchitektur+ we are deighted about this award –  many thanks for the always enriching collaboration!

The staggered levels of the roof garden are connected via ramps and stairs. A public path leading across the green roof makes it possible to cross the campus on the east-west axis. Along the meandering paths, various seating areas provide a retreat and green place to linger for researchers and students. This is also possible at dusk or at night: this is ensured by the lighting concept, which creates a very special atmosphere on the roof when it is dark.
