NVIDIA Corporate Campus, Santa Clara, California

New headquarters’ exterior areas for NVIDIA Silicon Valley pioneer in Santa Clara, California were designed by TLS Landscape Architects. The strong building forms designed by Gensler Architects Global were juxtaposed with the geometry of the landscape to create an exciting dynamic environment for this growing company.

NVIDIA’s new headquarters is a physical manifestation of its innovative business model. Black Locust Lumber assisted to provide an innovative exterior Proflow Permeable Pavers solution made of naturally rot-resistant Black Locust wood. The pavers are a zero-waste organic product that do not require treatment or finishes to maintain their longevity.

NVIDIA is a modern workplace designed for collaboration. The exterior areas also contribute to the everyday lives of employees by providing a space that sparks spontaneous interactions and informal meetings.

Proflow Permeables reduce stormwater runoff and replenish groundwater systems by allowing water percolation between pavers.

The light color and material properties of Black Locust make it a cooler alternative to concrete and other landscape surfaces.

Longevity

Black Locust is rot-resistant due to its natural genetic makeup. Natural rot-resistance, water-resistance, and anti-fungal properties give Black Locust a lifetime of 50+ years. Its durability and strength make it an excellent and long-lasting landscape surface.

Water Quality

Proflow Permeables reduce stormwater runoff and replenish groundwater systems by allowing water percolation between pavers. Pollutants are filtered out during natural bio-filtering processes, improving water quality. In addition, permeability reduces flooding and refreezing. Water infiltration rates of up to 123 inches per hour can be achieved using joint filler ASTM No.8.

Heat Island Effect

The light color and material properties of Black Locust make it a cooler alternative to concrete and other landscape surfaces, thus reducing the heat island effect. The heat island effect is the difference in temperature between a developed area and natural area. The addition of plants or moss between the pavers can help further reduce the heat absorbed by the ground covering.

Carbon Positive Product

Black Locust has many environmental advantages. Carbon sequestration occurs naturally in Black Locust, and its durability allows this sequestration to exceed beyond 50 years. Our Black Locust products are minimally processed during the manufacturing, therefore, our CO2 emissions are greatly reduced.

NVIDIA is a modern workplace designed for collaboration.
