This apartment complex at the Boelelaan has a 700m2 Polder Roof. Together with Van Heeswijk Architects, the Dakdokters constructed the roof. Because the entire roof was remodeled, it opened up an opportunity to create a solid foundation. For this, the Polder Roof was used and the rainwater that was trapped was used as irrigation for the many plants in this garden. This roof park consists of 450m2 green area and a 250m2 terrace area. It serves as a joint roof park for the residents of the building.
