range of designs in Casa Stonecraft’s Collection offers architects and
designers the opportunity to use architectural cast stone components true
in spirit to the orders of classical architecture. In most
circumstances the standard range of designs will satisfy the architect’s
requirements. Where it cannot, Casa Stonecraft can and do produce
custom-made cast stone designs to order.
With its inherent strength, Casa Stonecraft’s
cast stone can be used in structural building situations. However, the
usual practice is to use Casa Stonecraft cast stone purely as a decorative
building façade supported, where necessary, by reinforced concrete or
structural steelwork. This task is not difficult but should be carried out
only under the supervision of an architect or a structural engineer. If
you intend to use the products structurally, let Casa Stonecraft know when
you place your order, giving as much detail as possible. You can then be
advised on any ways in which Casa Stonecraft can simplify this work,
saving you time and money.
Our Architectural page will provide
inspiration to any architect, designer, developer or private client
considering a new build architectural project. This page also shows the
client the variety of new build projects typically involving Casa
Stonecraft as well as the capabilities of cast stone manufactured and how
it can transform a project.
“Classical architecture is
dignified; it is capable of magnificence as well as humility. It can, by
the use of its mouldings and vocabulary, express an infinite variety of
moods and conditions of man whether it be national, social or historical.
It is the expression of civilised man where every person is different.”
Quinlan Terry, 1968
