This unique project by John Patrick Landscape Architects combines the practicalities of permeability with a trafficable paving system that was customised to blend into the heritage setting. Adbri Masonry Turfgrid pavers were tinted to a sandstone colour to allow the product to match the sandstone façade of the 1930s heritage building. The colour change created a balance between form and function, providing a soft and subtle ground treatment to the car park and allowing the building to be the main focus. Contrasting bands of Turfgrid pavers in Charcoal have been used to delineate the car parking bays without the need for additional line marking. The flexibility and customisation embraced by this project have resulted in an attractive landscape solution for the car park.
