Burnley Rooftop

Melbourne University lecturers Nick Williams and John Rayner, together with Hassell Studio, have lead a team to develop a successful rooftop garden at the Burnley Campus.  Having researched green roofs extensively, in 2008 the team commenced building a rooftop garden spread over 300 square metres and divided into three areas.

Scott recently visited the space to see the range of plants successfully taking to their rooftop environment.






The rooftop garden has become a place for classes and there is ongoing research for students and industry professionals to gain knowledge in plant varieties and growing medium suitable for similar conditions.
