Meet Chateau Diviso™

Chateau Diviso™ is a rough-hewn split face Chateau Wall™ block that can be used as a free-standing garden wall, a low-height retaining wall, as a fire pit, or as a ribbon-striped accent to any Chateau Wall™. In this article, we’re going to introduce you to this paving stone, share what it’s all about, and why it might be the right choice for you.

Chateau Diviso™

The story is simple: since the Chateau Wall™ block’s inception in 2009, we’ve been exploring and testing the idea of a split version of the same product. Ten years after we launched the Chateau Wall™, we unveiled Chateau Diviso™.

We borrowed the name “Diviso” from the Italian language, which means “divided.” Furthermore, it’s worth noting that orchestra conductors use the term “diviso” to instruct a section (usually the strings) to divide itself into two, each taking separate parts notated on the same staff.

The name Chateau Diviso™ fits the product perfectly. It also complements our other European-inspired paving stone families: La Lastra, La Pietra, Camino Stone, Plaza Stone, and Holland Stone.

As we wrote earlier, Chateau Diviso™ is part of the Chateau Wall™ family. Below, we’re going to highlight a few features that make Diviso great.

Spectacualarly split

As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, Chateau Diviso™ is a rough-hewn split face block. This feature allows a spectacularly detailed look at the color blends. 

The Olympian blend presents a unique ribbon striping not seen in any of our other stones. It’s inspired by the Olympian peninsula near our distribution facility in Olympia, WA.

Surrounded by water, the peninsula is characterized by dark, muddy earth and heavy forage. If you look at the peninsula from a distance you see colors blends of tan, charcoal, dark brown, and a hint of red clay. It’s a dark, earthy, and authentic feel.

In contrast, is the Cambridge blend; inspired by the urban stone scapes along the East Coast. Void of any browns, this blend is completely greyscaled which expresses a modern, crisp look and feel.

New look for a familiar fire pit

The Chateau Diviso™ Fire Pit Kit is a splitting image (you see what we did there?) of the 50” Chateau Fire Pit Kit. The differences, of course, are that the Chateau Diviso™ fire pit uses the split face Chateau blocks and offers the Olympian blend with both charcoal and Olympian caps.

The Chateau Diviso™ fire pit uses adds a new texture to our popular fire pit kits. The four available colorways (Cambridge Blend w/Cambridge Cap, Cambridge Blend w/Charcoal Cap, Olympian Blend w/Olympian Cap, and Olympian Blend w/Charcoal Cap) are sure to enhance your outdoor living area year-round.

Made to be modular

The great thing about Chateau Diviso™ is you don’t have to be all-in. You can mix it into an existing retaining wall to create ribbons of color or texture. You just as easily incorporate other blocks into a Chateau Diviso™ wall with the same effect.

Chateau Diviso™ is 100mm thick and comes in three standard block sizes: 200×200mm, 300×200mm, and 400×200mm. Also available is a beveled piece, a cap, and two corner blocks (200x200mm and 300x200mm). 

The beveled piece allows you to create curved features, while the corner blocks make columns and corners a snap. The optional cap will enable you to finish off any project with a flare.
