The green roof vegetation at the age of ca. 8 years.
Conception

The soft landscaped areas of the United Bank of Switzerland in Basel (the
former head office of the Schweizer Bankverein) were created with a sophisticated
vegetation cover. Sliding planters on concrete slabs allow daylight
into the basement during the day, and are closed at night. The vegetation
specification and the system build-up in the sliding planters are identical
to the rest of the roof area.
