Sustainability in High Places

This project began as dream over the spring/summer of 2012. The Vancouver Club’s rooftop garden is an elegantly designed vegetable garden, a rare site in Vancouver…. The hope is to supply the Vancouver Club’s gourmet kitchen with as much food and herbs as possible. If a few food transport miles can be reduced each week, then they’ve achieved their goal.

Pot Incorporated is responsible for this rooftop masterpiece. Conex Construction and Situ Design are responsible for the hardwood deck and design.
