Yestermorrow Design/Build School teaches over 100 hands-on workshops a year in design, construction, woodworking, and architectural craft and offers a variety of courses concentrating in sustainable design. Inhabitect’s President, Nathan Griswold, co-teaches Green Roof Design and Installation course each year that provides the students a window into everything green roof.
These images showcase the project completed in 2016. This project was unique because the class elected to retrofit an old green roof and replace it with newer technology. The students selected a combination of Vermont natives and plant material growing locally as the vegetation. They also choose to add decomposing wood material and stones to provide homes for insects and other smaller creatures. Create micro-habitats is a cool way to mimic the natural ecosystem surrounding a project.
