CH2 Melbourne City Council

  • Location: Melbourne, Victoria
  • Architect: n/a
  • Principal Contractor: n/a
  • Landscape Architect: Design Inc.
  • Completion: 2006

Fytogreen supplied components to the Intensive Roof Garden at Australia’s first “6-Star Green Star Design” certified rated commercial office building by the Green Building Council of Australia. The $51.4 million CH2 office building housing City of Melbourne Council opened in 2006. 
CH2 was designed to reflect the planet’s ecology, which is an immensely complex system of inter- related components. The first focus of the design process for CH2 was to gain an understanding of Melbourne’s climate and weather patterns.

An ecosystem responds to its environment, and its ability to adapt to take advantage of changing weather conditions contributes greatly to the success of the system.

The design team found that responding to the site’s climactic conditions highlighted a range of opportunities for energy efficiency, and in doing so gave rise to some of CH2’s most innovative features.

CH2 replicates the leaf area of its original site through plantings on the north façade and roof terrace.
