Westview Green Roof

Location: Nashville, Tennessee
Client: McClaron & Associates, LLC, Old Hickory, Tennessee

Located in the heart of downtown Nashville at the corner of 8th Avenue and Church Street, this building was originally a South Central Bell operations building. Upon its revival as an urban condominium complex, Lose & Associates was selected to prepare a design for one of the first full-scale rooftop gardens in the city. Our services included a charrette with the design team and residents, the design of greenspace incorporating only native plant materials which covers 75% of the roof area, site furnishings, site lighting, selection of appropriate soil substrate, and opinions of cost. We also provided construction administration services. An innovative venture, the rooftop garden has received extensive press coverage both in the mid-state area and nationally.
