Salute to Neighborhood Roots

A gold winner in BIA’s paving and landscape category, Urby Harrison in Harrison, N.J., by landscape architects Mellilo + Bauer, is a multi-family housing complex which delivers a playful and organic experience in the transit-oriented micro-neighborhood. Its grounds feature outdoor cooking and dining spaces, table and lawn games, a firepit lounge and a pool terrace. The full-range pavers pick up the colors found in plants within the natural environment and in the nearby buildings, thus providing a pleasing foreground. In a nod to red-brick factories that were part of Harrison’s industrial beginnings, the design called for clay pavers that are reminiscent of recycled brick, but have the advantages of today’s clay pavers.
