Brief

With the aim of making Durham a unique place to shop and do business, Durham City Vision set out to enhance the area’s streetscape. Integral to the city’s masterplan, the paving choice had to be able to rejuvenate the landscape whilst also be sensitive to the existing historic infrastructure it surrounds. 

Solution

Over 3,000m2 of granite paving, setts and tactiles, in six colours variants, were specified to furnish the city’s streets. A contrasting Highmoor diamond sawn Yorkstone was also used, in-keeping with the historic feel of the area. This Highmoor, specified for its durability and naturally beautiful brown-grey hues, provided Durham City Vision with the fresh yet traditional environment they were aiming for.
