Originally designed out of wood, our client agreed to enhance the Georgian Architecture of his new home by using a more authentic material, limestone, for his entry portico. Based on color and ability to work the stone, we chose a french stone for the project.
Trying to stay true to the architecture and add structural strength to the portico, each piece was cut from a solid piece of stone, with the coffered ceiling being hand carved by french artisans.
The portico was laid out in the factory to ensure that the it would assemble correctly on site. After the inspection at the factory, we shipped the stone to Alexandria, where our masons installed the massive pieces of limestone. A final piece of copper will be installed on top of the limestone to protect the stone.
