A green roof is a roof that is covered with vegetation and
growth, which creates a wide range of options. Selecting
a vegetation type combines the practical with the enjoyable.
Green systems improve the heat and noise insulation
of a building structure, have an air purifying effect,
catch rainwater and discharge it at a delayed rate, enhance
the area’s biodiversity and have aesthetic added
value. Green roofs can have a primary and secondary
function. In the first case a green roof is often used as a
‘living roof’, possibly in combination with parking options.
