www.dinorahm-melendez.com www.toddhaiman.com In Brooklyn, collaborators Dinorah Matias and Todd Haiman designed a sustainable solution to their clients' problematic driveway. The existing asphalt was cracking, pot-holed, consistently failing and flooding during rainstorms. As per local ordinances, they could not repave or re-pitch the driveway to direct storm water into the street. The design solution reused pressure-treated boards from the demolished rear deck installed in the pea gravel driveway. The boards seem to float on the surface but in reality sit upon a "wooden carriage" allowing storm water to percolate, thereby reducing urban runoff.
