LRI was asked to install a small green roof on the Nauhuas Institute in West Asheville. We teamed up, yet again, with Asheville Go! – four green-industry interns aided in the roof’s installation. The Nauhaus, created by Alembic Studio, is the first “Platinum LEED” certified Hempcrete home in the world. The front-porch green roof is clearly visible from the street, transforming it into an educational tool as well as a functioning green roof.
