The paving surface will be a simple durable and functional contrite topping slab with integral color and various post pout textures such a acid or broom finish. The furnishings will be designed to build community with a communal built-in fire place with movable chairs. In addition part of the planter wall will be designed as a built in bench to create another smaller gathering or conversing area.
