paving

Our paving crew spent much of Saturday installing the concrete pavers for our porches, courtyard, front walk and driveway. The pavers sit on a bed of compacted sand, which establishes the slope for the paving and provides a dense supporting medium to distribute the weight of whatever the pavers are carrying (people, cars, elephants)...



The paving material is visually simple, in order to complement the lines of the house and contrast against the rough texture and variegated color of the coral rock. These three photos of the front porch give a sense of the interplay between the steel skin and structure (this is the only column exposed on the outside of the house), the concrete paving, the coral rock used in the planting beds, and the landscape.
