Superlative Green Roof projects, outstanding speakers, top-class presentations and an international collegial atmosphere made the two days at the 4th International Green Roof Congress in Istanbul from April 20–21, 2015 an industry highlight. Therefore, it was an honor for the firm ZinCo, as a Gold Sponsor, to be able to contribute to the success of the Congress.

Archipelago Roof Gardens in the World’s most Livable City

An archipelago is a small, flat and often rugged rock island typically found along the Baltic coast. And, the 86,000 ft² roof garden of the Tivoli Hotels & Congress Center in Copenhagen actually does resemble these rocky reefs. This is due to the fact that the many plant beds with their irregular contours are located like islands in the middle of the extensive pathways. A unique lighting concept means that the elaborate roof garden is an attraction for hotel and congress guests and tourists to Copenhagen even at night-time. Thanks to ZinCo green roof technology another part of this pedestrian pathway has been completed. The pathway can now be used without interruption along a stretch of approx. 1,440 ft.

Daniel Libeskind in Duesseldorf/Germany: The green topping in LEED shopping

“Koe-Bogen“, the luxury shopping and office mile in the heart of Duesseldorf, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, is shaping the cityscape. It is not only the innovative design of this six-storey complex created by Daniel Libeskind that is extraordinary but also the fact that it has been awarded LEED Platinum Certification for sustainable building. The green design plan includes about 43,000 ft² of extensive green roof at a height of 85 ft, about 16,000 ft² of roof garden for each of the green courtyards on the third and fourth storeys and 13,000 ft² of paving for the forecourt at ground level, above the underground garage. Greenery has also claimed its place in the bizarre incisions in the facade, enabling these “permeated green cuts” to bring the adjacent green courtyard into the building. The concepts have all been a huge success thanks to the use of the appropriate ZinCo green roof technology.
