How was the arch built? I will like to do something similar.

I use circle doorways in many homes. These days I just get my structural insulated panel company to do a 8 or 10" thick wall in the shape I want and that becomes the guide for the mason to lay up the stone until the mortar sets up. Then just push it out of the way. In the old days I'd build the wall out of plywood with purlins of 2 x 4 scrap, about every 10" between the two sheets.

A wood form was first build under this and then removed after the keystone was replaced.

with the current project I have an interior stress skin wall with a circle door and I'm using the donage (10") from the wall and setting it in a concrete foundation wall form to pour the street side of the garden courtyard
