Pocket Habitat Launch
Arup and Sky-Gardens have launched Pocket Habitat, the only modular planting system actively designed to promote biodiversity on new or existing roofs, or provide temporary greening at ground level.
Hill Holt is a charitable trust set up to offer an alternative way of life to young people in our inner cities. Hill Holt has built a new conference and teaching facility set in a rural woodland location.
The new, gently pitched roof is covered with a single ply membrane from Sarnafil and has been enhanced using Pocket Habitats planted with local Biodiverse Action Plan species and seed. The result is a new roof which blends in harmony with its surroundings.
