Pinehurst, North Carolina
Covering over 100,000 square feet of area, Pine Hall Brick pavers were a key element in Robert Hayter’s design for the host facility of the 1999 US Open Golf Championship. Applications include vehicular driveways, golf cart driveways, porches and walkways that run from the historic main hotel to the golf center. Beautiful as they are functional, these pavements helped Hayter win two 1999 architectural design awards given by the NC AIA in sponsorship with the Brick Association of the Carolinas (BAC). The well-deserved honors were the only two awarded for landscape design!
The New American Home® 2002Main campus
Since 1984, The New American Home has been a showcase for emerging trends in the housing industry, including architectural design, construction techniques, unique or innovative building products, furnishings and merchandising. The New American Home 2002 takes its inspiration from the homes of the Caribbean Islands, blending the look of a classical Southern farmhouse and a Caribbean estate plantation.
Located just outside of Atlanta, the home is high-tech and low maintenance, built using earth-friendly materials including a wood-framed exterior with manufactured stone detail and clay pavers on the driveway, walkway and patio areas. The house sits on 1.91 acres and covers 6,431 heated square feet.
University of Southern California
Walking through Hoover Corridor on the main campus, there is no evidence that it was once part of the Los Angeles street grid. The university wanted the Hoover Corridor to extend the architectural and landscape themes established elsewhere on campus.
Three colors of English Edge pavers were used to link so many different buildings together with a common landscape treatment and still enhance the character of each individual building” said Hart, president of Fong Hart Schneider & Partners.
Fong Hart Schneider & Partners received the 2004 Brick Paving Design Award from the Brick Industry Association for this project.
American Tobacco Historic DistrictThe Beck Cultural Center
This downtown renovation in Durham, NC is one of the largest restoration projects in the US. Retail shops, residences, restaurants and offices occupy the former tobacco warehouses adjacent to the Durham Bulls Baseball Complex. A manmade waterfall flows through the center of the project and the pedestrian areas are paved with Rumbled® pavers.
The Beck Cultural Center is dedicated to the research, collection, conservation and exhibition of achievements of African Americans in eastern Tennessee. The pattern for the centerpiece was inspired by a trial art plaque basket crafted by the Makonde of Tanzania, Africa.
