Krisha P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology | University of Pennsylvania | Roof Meadow

Peg-Woolsey_Roofmeadow1

Krisha P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology includes two green roof areas.  The Meadow Roof is a prominent feature of the building attracting individuals and groups eager to enjoy time in the rooftop amenity space. A second larger Sedum Roof includes native perennials and grasses planted alongside the building’s air handling and HVAC equipment. This larger Sedum Roof may have less aesthetic and cultural significance; however, it is a storm water management workhorse. Both green roof areas are an integral part of the project’s stormwater management plan.  Surrounded by floor to ceiling etched glass walls on three sides and a clear glass railing open to the city on the fourth side, the Meadow Roof is visually accessible from corridors and conference rooms.
