PRLog (Press Release) - Nov. 1, 2012 - (Durham, NC) -- The Triangle Brick Headquarters’ “Brick Garden” in Durham, NC, designed by Pearce Brinkley Cease + Lee (PBC+L) (http://www.pbclarchitecture.com), received a 2012 Certificate of Recognition from the North Carolina chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (NCASLA (http://www.ncasla.org/)).

The award was presented during the NCASLA’s 2012 Fall Conference held at the Grandover Resort & Conference Center in Greensboro, NC, in October.

“Seldom does an opportunity to design a truly unique landscape feature present itself,” said Jeffrey Lee, FAIA, lead designer for the project, which includes an 18,000-square-foot building. “This was, however, the case with the Brick Garden at the Triangle Brick Headquarters (http://www.trianglebrick.com/about.aspx).”

Lee pointed out that the site itself, located on NC 55, has evolved from an original brick manufacturing facility and clay pit to Triangle Brick’s corporate headquarters and design center. The buildings and the Brick Garden were both designed to showcase Triangle Brick’s product line and to complement and reinforce one another.

“The Brick Garden is a unique, geometrically ordered space defined by a balanced composition of hedges, trees, lawn, ground cover, hardscape, and fixed and moveable walls,” Lee said.

Spinning brick panels in the garden offer Triangle Brick’s customers the opportunity to view their potential choices in a variety of daylight conditions. As a byproduct, these kinetic elements provide an ever-changing perspective of views across the garden. The garden also features trees native to North Carolina, including river birch, maple, and crepe myrtle – each of which will provide its own texture and color as the garden matures.

“And to acknowledgement the history of the site, as a former brickyard, we also incorporated brick cubes, evenly spaced and aligned, as sculptural elements, forming an edge to the Garden,” said Lee, who was joined on the project’s design team by PBC+L’s Irvin Pearce, AIA; and Rob Harkey, AIA.

The ASLA is a national professional society that represents the landscape architecture profession. The North Carolina chapter includes members in private practice, public practice, academic and related professions. The NCASLA’s awards recognize those who have made significant contributions to the profession and to the enhancement of the physical environment. For more information, go to http://www.ncasla.org.
