The Scandinavian Green Roof Institute has designated Artipelag as the year’s greenest roof!
Artipelag has received a prize for its wonderful Sedum-covered roof. Nearly 54,000 sq ft of the roof are covered with Sedum plants, which in addition to being beautiful and recreating nature, also absorb rain water without putting unnecessary burden on water-treatment plants.
The next time you visit Artipelag, be sure to visit our Sedum roof, outside Restaurant Baggen and up on top of the roof!
The Scandinavian Green Roof Association is a non-profit organization that gathers knowledge and provides information about living green roofs. The association has handed out the distinction of the Scandinavian Green Roof Award since the year 2000. This year’s award ceremony took place on 6 September in Malmö, Sweden, where Artipelag’s founder Björn Jakobson was on hand to receive the prize.
Sedum plants belong to the Crassulaceae family (whose members are more commonly known as stonecrops). The yellow stonecrop is one of the most common Sedum varieties in Sweden. These plants can maintain their water reserves despite drought or heat conditions where they grow, such as on bare rocky outcrops and arid hills.
