As homage to the American desert southwest home of Arizona State University, a sweeping, 40’ long by 10’ high sandstone feature wall greets visitors in the building lobby.The computationally generated surface of the wall topography are not ‘hidden’ but rather are celebrated in a triangulated pattern allowed to read through in the final product. The triangulation edges are a result of the stone tooling, a diamond-bit rope on two Computer Numeric Controlled pulleys are able to carve a ruled surface through the stone slabs. The crisp edges of the CNC fabrication were ‘swept’ by laying up the entire wall and hand-sandblast sculpting the surface to bring out the striation and create uniformity to the final form. Finally, dramatic, grazed-lighting highlights the CNC-sculpted stone, capturing the relief and detail of the surface. The result is a hybrid of digitally developed modeling and hand-finished circumstance that bridges the line between natural and computer generated form.
The Metaquartzite stone is far superior to other quartz based Sandstones for the purposes of exterior façade systems. The stone is much more durable than any other in its class, and an investment in LVR is an investment in a product that will indefinitely.
Not only does LVR provide exterior stone for award winning installations, but its Metaquartzite can achieve a plethora of applications for interiors as well. The material has a high threshold for resistance to wear and has an extraordinarily high slip resistance in the polished finish.
LVR is a custom boutique architectural stone company that can cut/finish to any of you projects specific requirements. Working closely with designers, we are able to expand our product line with conceptual ideas from project to project.
