Escofet Icaria Tree Surround
Design by: Espinet & Ubach Architects
The ICARIA tree surround consists of two symmetrical pieces of cast stone with an acid-etched finish, supplied in granite grey or beige. It has a 55 cm. diameter gap in the centre that is suitable for surrounding medium-height trees. It is set flush with the pavement, as a continuity from its texture and finish. Its flat surface has a subtle inward-facing angle to make this an additional part of the pavement. Its delicate geometry also acts as a water collection device to assist the irrigation process.
ICARIA was designed by architects Miquel Espinet and Antoni Ubach in 1992, in conjunction with Escofet.
