Sydmonton Court, Private Residence Carved Entrance, Hampshire
Client: Private Client
Summary: Key-note entrance with feature carved window
AFJ Scope: Detailing, carving & installation.
Particular features / achievements:
– An intricately & exquisitely carved window of classical design.
– A contemporary entrance door surround with fluting & support to Juliet balcony.
– Opened by the Duke of Edinburgh (A F Jones recognised for our contribution to this extraordinary project).
Through the use of plaster prototyping & mock-ups, A F Jones Stonemasons were able to develop the form of the window from an original masterpiece 2-dimensional drawing. Only through the skill of A F Jones master-masons was this project able to be delivered.
The selection, cutting, transportation, lifting and careful placement of the oversize individual stone elements was a phenomenal achievement in itself. This project was delivered in the 1990’s, but will always remain as one of our most outstanding achievements.
