04 Green roof in Oslo / Sørengkaia 65

This is a fourth roof from my fieldwork. Sørenga is a new district on artificial peninsula in Oslo.

In Sørenga district I visited three extensive green roofs,which addressees are

  1. on Sørengkaia 65, OSLO (belong to Sørenga 2)
  2. on Sørengkaia 85, OSLO (belong to Sørenga 1)
  3. on Sørengkaia 99, OSLO (belong to Sørenga 1)

To check a map of Sørenga buildings location, it is better to use Gulesider map, because the new Sørenga buildings are not on the Google Map. So there is a link to map: http://kart.gulesider.no/

“Very new, sustainable and green,” this is the words by which I can describe this project. Actually it is growing fast, most of the buildings are complete. People who lives there can already enjoy the coastal climate of Oslo.

Actually for me a a lot of new norwegian buildings looks like a urban mountains with their growing levels of terraces

There are photos from green roof of Sørenkaia 65

I experienced myself a strong wind, so as this roof also feels a wind erosion.

Green is everywhere even on balconies.
