The Kimball Meadow is an ideal addition this unique living and creative space located in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood. An 8-inch Omni Green Roof meadow atop the lodge’s adjacent garage provides the perfect backdrop for this eclectic and spacious industrial loft. During installation, the roof was planted with perennial starts and seeded with meadow plants that grow more robust and resilient every season.
The second-floor living space and kitchen as well as the third-floor bedrooms overlook the beautiful green roof, surprising guests and residents with a delightful view. Plantings include black-eyed susans, coreopsis, asters, tomatoes, strawberries, lettuce and kale, among many others seen throughout the growing season.
