As a homeowner, you may be more concerned about your roof’s quality and longevity above all else, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have to look good. In other countries, there are some architects who took a step further and treated the roofs of their structures as if they’re ornamental pieces of their overall design. These structures have since become famous around the world.
As tile and slate roof repair specialists, we appreciate how the roofs in these structures have made them world-famous. You might even find them interesting enough to draw inspiration from!
Olympiapark (Munich, Germany)
This structure was first built for the Olympic Games in 1972. Today, it’s used as a venue for social and cultural events, and even a place of worship. The building is world-famous for its skinned roof made from a lightweight material. If you’re brave enough, it’s even possible to walk up the roof and zipline down from the top!
ACROS Fukuoka Prefectural International Hall (Fukuoka, Japan)
This structure doesn’t feature the average roof and gutter installation that you’d find in most other buildings. In fact, the ACROS Fukuoka Prefectural International Hall in Fukuoka, Japan is one of the newest iconic structures in the category of ‘green roofs’. This architectural wonder is a combination of commercial and open green space featuring 15 green terraced steps that can be explored like a park with walking paths, gardens, and reflection pools. This structure is also situated in the middle of a busy, high-tech city.
Sydney Opera House (Sydney, Australia)
This structure took 14 years to complete and cost around 102 million Australian dollars, which resulted in an opera house that’s also one of the most unique and recognized around the world. Each of the “shells” are actually precast concrete panels covered by a total of over a million Swedish tiles.
