Gracing the cover of 425 Magazine is Leota, a 4,000 square-foot home designed and built by the Meydenbauer Group. Beginning with raw land, this beautiful house in Woodinville evolved, combining the Pacific Northwest style that highlights wood and stone with an open floorplan and metal panels that come with an industrial space. The home shines from floor to ceiling, and fortunately for us, the Meydenbauer Group let Mutual Materials share a small part of the project, by including a couple of our products in the job.
Eco-Priora permeable pavers were selected for the driveway. Increasingly more municipalities are requiring new homes and remodels where the footprint is altered to have a plan in place for the management of stormwater (See our blog on these requirements in the City of Seattle). Eco-Priora is a great choice because it is highly functional in reducing runoff while maintaining the structural integrity of the driveway, but also comes in two sizes, giving designers flexibility in their designs.
The landscape architect, Gayle Cramer, chose our 12″ x 24″ Vancouver Bay architectural slabs for an extension of the patio, where individual pieces were separated by turf, giving the yard a modular contemporary look. Vancouver Bay architectural slabs come in other sizes as well; a 24″ x 24″ square and an 18″ x 18″ square. The smooth, shot-blast finish of our Vancouver Bay slabs coupled with the square dimensions, makes it a great choice for modern design in patios, walkways and rooftop decks. Because of it’s larger format, you need less pieces to cover the same amount of square feet as you would with smaller pavers.
Thanks again to 425 Magazine for allowing Mutual Materials to share a little bit of the spotlight.
