The Orange Regional Museum has been awarded the Sulman Medal for Public Architecture in the NSW Architecture Awards. The iconic building features a large sloping grass roof, serving as a public meeting place and cultural space to hold festivals and movie nights and to display sculptures. The Crone Architects design combines the new museum with existing library and gallery buildings to create a cultural hub for the area.
The grassed green roof project was undertaken by Junglefy in 2016 to provide consultation on the initial design concept and to bring the green roof to life. The recommended solution provided was a Geoweb system and bespoke media to support the turf on the sloping roof and to minimise erosion. An innovative product, ‘blowable turf underlay’ was also specifically developed for this project, by Ecoscapes.
