France: Wine, Cheese and Environmental Laws

Rooftops on new buildings built in commercial zones in France must either be partially covered in plants or solar panels.

This became official back in March but continues to make us happy everyday. We always try to incorporate plants and energy saving, earth conscious practices into our interiors and exterior designs. How lovely that laws can have such a beautiful and positive impact on design and the earth at the same time.

Just one more reason to love France.

Form, function and color are dominant in this NY rooftop.

Trees at street level and on the top deck in Paris.

Chicago’s City hall speaks volumes about leading the way by example.
