The new residence was designed to have as little impact on the surrounding landscape as possible. The home features an extensive green roof above the guest/pool house, visible and accessible from the master bedroom. An Ipe wood deck surrounds the green roof allowing
the homeowners to walk completely around it and use the space as a rooftop terrace. The green roof was planted with drought tolerant species of Allium, Euphorbia, Talinum, Sedum, and Delosperma. This is the first residential green roof in Charleston, SC.
