The Venny green roof

Researchers:  A/Prof John Rayner, Kirsten Raynor, A/Prof Nick Williams

Funding: City of Melbourne (2009)


The Venny is a community centre in Kensington owned by the City of Melbourne.

We were contracted to research and provide recommendations for lightweight substrates and drought tolerant plants for almost 200 square metres of green roofs to be installed on the building.

This resulted in the use of three lightweight substrates and a palette of approximately 30 succulent and related plants being used across the site.
