Stantec Consulting Ltd.
Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture
The impetus for the vision of the roof top garden was to provide YOU’s newly refurbished building with an outdoor space to embrace creativity and invite collaboration and innovation from the community. It is designed to educate and inspire, be a place of respite, and provide environmental leadership and a self-sustaining urban oasis. Key elements include energy collection devices such as solar panels and windmills, a rainwater cistern, kitchen gardens, public art, drought tolerant plant material and various recreational and lounge areas.
