Clerkenwell Close

This new build masonry project features large, raw, blocks of load-bearing structural stonework. These incredible pieces of quarry finished Chomerac stone were intentionally left with a sawn finish, leaving them in as much of a raw state as possible. This aesthetic is the culmination of months of research and design development. Our experienced site manager underwent special training in order for us to have these pieces installed by crane.

This complex and modern structure is a fantastic example of what can be achieved using stone as a structural material.  Through eight years of collaboration with Webb Yates Engineers we have tried to rationalize and update not only engineering processes but also the manufacturing methods for stone structures to create projects such as this.

 

This video provides an insight into the work that went into creating this complex and modern load bearing stone structure. This is a fantastic example of what can be achieved using stone as a structural material.

If it wasn’t for their expertise there would be no New Stone Age movement in architecture. They reassured and led structural engineers and architects through the process of choosing the right stone for loadbearing purposes, the quarries for supply and finishes and the most efficient methods for cutting, transportation and installation, which they all undertook in a timely and fuss free manner.
