2016 Award - Residential Specialty Product

The client reached out to us about re-doing a specialty project in their living room. Back in the 1990s, they had built a 3-tier fountain in their living room. It was made out of brick and was designed not only for aesthetics, but also to provide the auditory ambience in the living room. However, over the years the brick had become worn and stained. It looked tired. On top of that, the fountain had continual leaking problems into the level below. The clients wanted to keep the same idea of a fountain integrated into the living room. But, we all agreed that it would have to be redesigned using different materials. We decided to change the original boxy shape by adding angles on the tiers to make the fountain progressively pivot from the top to end up at a 45◦ angle to the fireplace. Instead of using brick, as the original had, we decided to use Carmarthen Brown quartz. This gave the new structure a polished look as well as having the extra benefit of being stain and wear resistant
