Facades are the eye catchers in our environment and the prestige of any architect. Hence their great importance in the designing process is not surprising. Often it takes months drafting and puzzling in order to find the right composition. During this process materials are chosen carefully. Architects realize that natural stone is a product that is indispensable in today’s building projects. Together with contemporary materials such as wood, glass and steel they make natural stone alive and use it in original ways for unique concepts.
In addition to traditional facades one can also choose for facade elements. For example, you can choose for either horizontal or vertical placed lamellae: an excellent way to create a playful “break” in the facade. Window or door frames in natural stone are a beautiful contrast to bricks. Column coverings with special finishings provides the building with its very own characteristics. Stone name plates tell us more about the building year and the residents who lived in the building. Keystones and lintels not only hold and pass on the load above the doorway, they also recall a nostalgic atmosphere. This is just an example of the numerous varieties how to distinct a building.
