East Wall Retail Park in Dublin, which includes popular retail outlets such as LIDL and Starbucks, underwent refurbishment works in 2016. The construction was managed by J. Manning & Son Ltd and involved the installation of an attractive hard landscaping solution to revitalise the area.
Landscape architect, Stephen Diamond, created the design concept for the externals works and specified Tobermore’s Manhattan plank paving to serve as an attractive and functional hard landscaping method.
Manhattan is manufactured with a striking granite aggregate surface layer that creates a contemporary appearance similar to natural granite. The slender linear product shape offers unique aesthetic appeal, creating the impression of space by producing a lengthening or widening effect to the area in which it has been laid. Stephen Diamond selected Manhattan in the colours of Silver and Graphite to create a mixed colour pattern that maximised the visual impact of the landscape at East Wall Retail Park.
