Seamlessly integrating architecture and landscape architecture

ASPECT Studios were engaged to assist the Franciscan Monks with the provision of a Multi Purpose Building and Fire Shelter at Tarrawarra Abbey.
As a response to the potential threat on extreme weather days, the green roof to this building can be wet-up via the sub soil irrigation system using site captured water with a pump on generator power supply. On hot days the monks can retreat into the building and be afforded a degree of refuge.
The roof is an extensive green roof / indigenous roof garden on a 200mm depth substrate.
