The site plan for the Laboratory Addition features an extensive green roof that can be viewed from patient rooms and waiting areas. Long, linear skylights are superimposed over the green roof, creating a geometric framework. The roof is planted with three cultivars of drought tolerant sedum, which bloom at different times. Rectilinear strips of gravel provide textural interest. The linear design is continued on the ground plane in plantings and seating.
