As our 12th extensive roof garden installation the roof garden on the MONA building is spectacular to match the architecture and scenery.

The banks of the Derwent could not be more beautiful and the stunning steel clad building sets a powerful statement prior to descending into what is Australia’s most remarkable museums. The owner’s home and the museums ground level roof is clad with an extensive roof garden.

This spectacular extensive roof garden was designed by Oculus Landscape Architect’s

and it nestles onto the main building merging natural structure with built structure. Using many coastal species and a range of succulents and strappy foliage the garden has minimal maintenance.

Also flanking the arrival staircase from the pier where the catamaran arrives from Hobart is a series of planter boxes with 4-5m high conifers and trialling over the sides are mesembryanthemum.
