Grange Mutual Insurance Headquarters, Columbus, Ohio - Hardscape Feature

The plaza hardscape at Grange Mutual Insurance headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, is primarily precast concrete pavers (Hanover) arranged to create subtle bands of warm and cool grays with light and medium sandblast finishes. The pavers have a 'charcoal' tint, and 'Tudor' and 'heavy Tudor' finishes. The Tudor finish "very lightly exposes the aggregate, similar to a flamed granite texture," says the manufacturer. Full and half paver modules are randomly arranged, which creates a rich visual effect whether viewed from a distance or up close.
