Since the Sacramento area is know for having extreme hot temperatures, the design will feature a LiveRoof system that will help with the heat island effect in the urban Downtown Sacramento area. Since the roof of the Urbana Community is well structured and flat, the LiveRoof will be easy to install. The design of the roof was designed to be a fun, organic and sociable space where the Urbana Community residents as well as the public can enjoy. It is design to draw in the Sacramento community into the space where the property will provide programs to educate the community on better “Earth Friendly” behaviors.
