Porcelain – Residential Contractor: Pacific Outdoor Living (Sun Valley, Calif.) Manufacturer: Belgard Designer: Terry Morrill Pacific Outdoor Living renovated the side yard for the 2017 Pasadena Showcase House of Design. The client wanted a sleek and modern outdoor space that extended the interior space. Porcelain pavers accomplish this by incorporating different design elements. The centerpiece is a custom concrete water table with a run-through stream and waterfall. The biggest challenge of this project was creating something that really stood out and didn't feel entirely like an outdoor space. This type of flooring coupled with the bamboo paneling and screens, outdoor furniture and California- friendly plants, gives a great mix of indoor and outdoor elements. 2017 Pasadena Showcase House of Design Pasadena, California Concrete – Permeable Residential Contractor: Shawano Lawn and Stone (Shawano, Wis.) Manufacturer: County Materials Corporation Designer: Shawano Lawn and Stone When this property was purchased as a lakeside cottage, the new owners inherited a deteriorating wood deck and wanted to update their backyard with a clean, modern look. The homeowners looked to concrete pavers for durability; however, local county zoning re- quirements mandated there could not be any impermeable surfaces within 100 feet of the shoreline. To achieve their desired look, they selected a solid white colored Holland paver with solid gray pavers for a border. For the circular patio and curved pathways, the design required accurate measuring and careful cutting. Special design consideration was given to the selection and installation of base materials to properly capture and filter storm water. Emile Court Residence Gillett, Wisconsin Concrete Paver – Permeable Commercial Contractor: Hickory Hardscapes (Knoxville, Tenn.) Manufacturer: Belgard The University of Tennessee wanted to support a masterpiece with a well-designed permeable walkway that would connect the classrooms on "The Hill" to the Library with the University's Neyland Football Stadium in the backdrop. Hickory Hardscapes constructed the design using four different colors in a basket weave pattern. Keeping lines straight over these long distances was very difficult to accomplish with the basket weave pattern. The University of Tennessee loved this permeable walkway so much they have used it for numerous events, including news channels. Every time ESPN's GameDay is at UT for football, they will set up their broadcast booth on the area.

Manufacturer: Belgard, Unilock, Solistone, Milestone Imports Designer: Cohen Development Company To the best of our knowledge, this is the largest interlocking concrete paver parking lot and hardscape sidewalks project of any shopping center in the entire United States. As part of the $25 million award-winning re- development of Westlake Shopping Center, all asphalt was removed from main parking fields, entrance driveways and Main Street. Re-built entirely of interlocking concrete pavers, it was finished in two phases in 2010 and 2014. On hot summer days, the high solar reflectivity finish on the ICP makes the parking lot 20 degrees cooler than the old asphalt lot. Continued on page 66
