OPTOPPER, ROTTERDAMModular housing with a modular green roof

Space in cities is limited, but rooftops offer great potential to solve the housing shortage. Developer VORM initiated the 'Optopper' with Buurtboost, a modular series of linkable elements that together form flats and can be placed on top of existing buildings and structures. 

Naturally, this top-up concept also calls for a modular green roof system, which is why we were approached to supply our Jungle Boxes (modular plant crates) on the prototype's roof. Jungle vibes guaranteed!
