Wienerberger Penter clay pavers have helped transform Centenary Square, the largest public square in the heart of Birmingham. The design has co-ordinated the square into three distinct realms: monumental, cultural and entertainment.
The pavers themselves, chosen for their striking colours, are in keeping with both the surrounding paved area and the building’s aesthetic, and are 200mm x 100mm x 62mm Dragfaced Chamfered Blue and Multi Brindled pavers, Essen Red and the Hannover Buff Brindled paver.
This combination was used to create the ‘red line’ to lead pedestrians into Centenary Square. The use of clay to create this pattern means that the distinct colour will be retained for the life span of the paver and like other natural products the clay’s colour will even be more vibrant when wet.
The paving has been flexibly laid using traditional methods in a variety of bonds, including stretcher and herringbone.
Within the solidity of the overall structure, the effect is to give the impression of one space flowing into the next; contrasting the hustle and bustle of the outside streets with the serenity of the study spaces that overlook the surrounding paved area.
