Realm of Design’s founder, Scott McCombs, worked years on developing and perfecting green architectural stone (aka “GreenStone”), which is made from 100% recycled glass aggregate and 99.8% renewable materials from Fly Ash. Partnering with a Las Vegas recycling company, Realm of Design obtains and recycles beer bottles that comes from Las Vegas Strip hotels. Since glass takes 4000 years to decompose and is piling up in landfills, Realm of Design is proud to be a company that is helping to provide a resource and energy efficient product that helps close the glass-recycling loop and save landfill space.

Fun Facts: Realm of Design were their own first client to build with their GreenStone. The company recently completed construction on its new 30,000 sq ft manufacturing facility. The Building, properly named the Morrow Royal Pavilion, is adjacent to Realm of Design’s existing showroom located in Henderson Nevada. Construction of the building utilized more than 500,000 beer bottles which amounted to over 290,000 pounds of recycled glass for the exterior building façade. All the recycled materials utilized saved over 400,000 CU yds of landfill space. The design of the Morrow Royal Pavilion was inspired by the Swarkestone Hall Pavilion in England-the location of one of The Rolling Stones most famous photo shoots. The company even launched a Facebook campaign to encourage the legendary rockers to visit the building.
The new GreenStone product and Morrow Royal Pavilion have sparked quite a bit of media attention. Realm of Design was featured on the DIY network show “This New House” and “Real Green TV.” They are currently in talks with other networks that are looking to feature the company and its green products. The TV shows have gotten the company national exposure which resulted in various press stories to be written about them and GreenStone. In addition to the national attention, Realm of Design has won numerous prestigious awards for design, development and their Green Technology. The company recently met with White House CEQ, Nancey Sutley, for a roundtable discussion on green energy. In effort to continue in reducing the company’s carbon footprint, Realm of Design has LEED Green associates on staff which are also available to assist their customers who wish to build green as well.
Realm of Design is excited to now offer this patented GreenStone in the architectural designs it creates for its customers/clients who want the opportunity to be green. The GreenStone can be used to replace standard concrete in buildings or smaller items such as fireplaces, mantles, gazebos, fountains, balustrades, columns/ beams, etc. – They even created a new patent-pending product where photos are engraved into a canvas of Greenstone which provide a lasting memory while being eco-friendly. Realm of Design donated park benches to The City of Las Vegas, City of North Las Vegas, City of Henderson, and Clark County in effort to promote sustainability within the community.
