The Roof at the Kids Discovery Museum is Growing on Us!
The roof at the new Kids Discovery Museum is Growing on Us!
The new Kids Discovery Museum on Bainbridge Island has been designed to include a Living Roof. A living roof will naturally insulate a building, providing a natural barrier to heat gain or loss.
Additionally, the vegetation on the roof attracts fun insects, including butterflies, contributing to the overall ecological balance of the surrounding area – including Winslow Ravine.
- the architecture supports native environments/habitats
- the architecture serves to maximize space for landscapes
- the architecture replaces displaced planted areas
Congratulations, Kids Discovery Museum, for GOING GREEN! “KiDi Mu” will be open to the public on June 5, 2010.
The Kids Discovery Museum is part of the Island Gateway Project on Bainbridge Island, designed by Coates Design Architects. The project includes the new Bainbridge Art Museum. Retail and office space pre-sales available now.
