Car park roof in Ħamrun, Malta 

Climbing the steps to the roof of the car park at the Misraħ is-Sebgħa ta' Ġunju 1919 Place in Ħamrun will bring you to a restful green paradise where the interplay of colour, form and light will help you forget the hustle and bustle of the surrounding city. Architects Doric Studio/Living Walls have created a spectacular feature from what was previously a desolate car park, therefore providing enormous value added for the residents within this community.

A roof can play a decisive role in the water management of a building, an entire urban district and a city itself provided it is specifically used for its water retention capacity. Temporary water retention on a roof is effective for absorbing heavy rainwater and draining it in a controlled manner and in so doing preventing flooding and the sewerage system from becoming overwhelmed. Additional water storage on a roof is useful for vegetation too, which absorbs and evaporates the available water. As a result, the vegetation becomes more species rich and the surrounding area is cooled.

The system build-up “Steep Pitched Green Roof”, based on the ZinCo Georaster® elements, enables the installation of green roofs with slopes exceeding 20° and up to 35°
