This is a portico project for a private client that we completed several months back – and certainly worthy of sharing here…

It is made from a French limestone called Bretignac, similar in colour and general appearance to Bath Stone,  but slightly more porous with an open grain texture.

From the concept stage, AFJones helped to develop the detailing and interfaces with the supporting structure behind the entablature.  We then completed the full 3D drawings,  production & full installation.

The design featured a carving of a Pomegranate Tree, and also a carved plaque for the house name which we enjoyed making.    We hope the carved detail shall be well admired for years to come.

What a splendid handsome result.
