Illuster Rooftop Garden

Uster CH . 2016 - 2019  
With the conversion of the shopping center and Hotel Illuster, the idea of a contemporary use of the large roof areas was born. The winding narrow paths lead through a collection of green islands, which, with their different levels of embankment, additionally subdivide the space, thus offering space for rest, relaxation and play. The planting is staggered in three heights and shows its aspects over the entire vegetation period.

Diverse and at the same time easy to care for, a natural wildness is desired. In the long term, this will create a place for flora and fauna that has been relieved from the city floor and at the same time improves the cold air flows in the center of Uster. All used materials are permeable to water and allow maximum retention on the roof surfaces. The roof garden appears as a place of encounter and recreation with a view of the city of Uster and underlines its quality feature - the direct proximity of the city to the surrounding open countryside.
