The greenery projects and the technological substrate on the roofs of two houses in Matera and Turin are by Harpo, the company of reference in the green building sector.

The roof garden of a private home in the historical center of Matera is a small earthly paradise. The space can be used as a continuation of the interiors of the house, thanks to the project by the landscape architecture firm GiardiniGiordani of Luigina Giordani. Two small areas feature recycled brick, shrubs and perennials, guaranteeing privacy and above all a cycle of blossoms, foliage and aromas.

The home in a large courtyard of a building in the historical center of Turin has two levels connected by an internal staircase leading to a glass volume on the roof. The redesign (project by architetct Elena Carmagnani Studio999 – OrtiAlti with Marta Carraro, landscape designer) of the terrace of over 150 square meters uses just two materials: wood and vegetation.
