View of green roof at Miami Dade Children’s Courthouse

C+R is excited to show the sneak peak preview of the newly completed green roof we designed in collaboration with HOK at the New Miami Dade Children’s Courthouse. The drought tolerant plant materials are planted in soft curvy beds reminiscent from above of the patterns and textures created in the Everglades by slowly moving water.

A drip irrigation system and lightweight soil add to the special features of this rooftop garden.  It will be seen from within the building’s public spaces as well as from the Metrorail Station to the east and the County Building to the south.  We are very excited to have been involved with another environmentally friendly feature for the Miami Skyline.  Here’s to more green roofs throughout the downtown area!
