Insidesign Innovation House

Functionality Disguised

To create a functional yet attractive route to supply materials to the terrace level workshop, the team designed a driveway consisting of EZ Roll Grass Pavers and EZ Roll Gravel Pavers from NDS. These paver systems are made from 100% recycled plastic and are a sustainable alternative to traditional paving methods while protecting the natural beauty of the landscape. The gridwork of hexagonal cells provides a solid foundation (compression strenth of 57,890 for Grass and 66,000 for Gravel) that is permeable reducing the showhouse’s stormwater runoff challenges. The EZ Roll Grass pavers protect the root zone and prevent soil compactions, allow ing healthy grass to thrive in areas that would traditionally have impervious hardscaping installed. EZ Roll Gravel Pavers reduce erosion and help maintain the look and functionality of a gravel road that is less expensive to maintain over time than traditional hardscaping.  Drain water management was also solved easily with the new decorative grates for the catch basins.
