We demystify green roofs by making the unique complexities of their design and construction feel easy—so that more and more people can experience and believe in living roofs.
We are Living Roofs, an award-winning design and construction office based in Asheville, North Carolina. Our story begins in 2006. Newly founded back then, we operated from kitchen tables and coffee shops. We have since grown into an interdisciplinary office with 100s of successfully completed projects spread out over the Southeast from sea level to over 5,000 ft in elevation!
Our many years of experience have made us leaders in the Green Roof industry, with unmatched expertise in the unique and diverse climates of the Southeast. We currently serve several states including; North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Georgia.
We are led by founders Emilio and Kate Ancaya and are dedicated to giving our clients a feeling of confident ease with a full scope of services from Design and Construction to Maintenance & Restoration—we do everything your project could need.
We leverage deep experience in the Southeast, with proven standards of success and tested processes to simplify the unique complexities inherent in every landscape on structure project. So you can rest easy—and rely on us.
