Paving is limestone, it has a really soft look and does not seem to glare in the sunshine

Sorry to get specific, but what type of limestone exactly? There seem to be quite a few sorts and colour variations. Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The pavilion is seamlessly connected to the outdoors and is within plain view of the larger house. Its proximity to the patio ensures that entertaining can easily expand to the outside.

Architect Margaret Menter turned this garage into a creative space that will grow with the family as their needs change.
