OMMX Architects design buildings, rooms and objects, all concerned with architecture’s capacity to hold the collective and individual rituals of everyday life.

Green roofs environmental benefits Green roofs can be advantageous for many reasons: Reduce heating and cooling Increase the roof life span by at least double Grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers Reduce run-off storm water Filter pollutants and CO2 out of the air Insulate for sound and heat Filter pollutants and heavy metals out of rainwater Increase wildlife habitat

Roofs that hold water: reduce heating and cooling costs, increase life of roof, and create a rooftop garden! Would be great on a shipping container home, as there might be a risk of collapsed roof otherwise if drainage isn't sufficient.
