 modern living room

Perched on a bluff overlooking Block Island Sound, the property is a flag lot at the edge of a new subdivision, bordered on three sides by water, wetlands, and woods. The client asked us to design a house with a minimal impact on the pristine landscape, maximum exposure to the views and all the amenities of a year round vacation home.
The basic requirements of each space were considered integrally with the effects of sunlight, breezes and views. The house was conceived as a lens, continually framing and magnifying the subtle changes in the surrounding environment.

2Stone Designer Concrete
This board form concrete fireplace is exactly the look that inspired our board form concrete tile. It allows our clients to get this look "after the fact". Check out the photo, each tile is unique and one of a kind adding to the authentic poured in place look. We ship world wide!
