This project involved the selection of a very uniform grey granite, which was critical to the clean and simplistic design intent. Rugo researched and provided a unique uniform granite from Italy to glad the entire exterior wall system; the finished result is a highly uniform facade that sits over the reflecting pool.
Rugo performed the design and installation of a custom stone support system, which involved careful and detailed coordination with the building structural steel frame. The building lobby features a complex desk, and a custom hand-chiseled wall marble, to create a rustic yet modern feel to the lobby environment. Rugo also installed a 4″ granite-entry drive-court paving system.
