Stucco on Block : Creative Use of Masonry : BARNETT RESIDENCE
This majestic residence designed in a style of Mediterranean and Moorish architecture is truly considered a unique gem to its community. Facing the New River canal it is admired by users of the intercostal waterway for its memorable design elements and impeccable quality. This type of residential project required heroic efforts by the contractor to produce an epic result and bring the architect’s vision to life. Due to the complexity of the custom carvings including the Moorish repeating arches and Corinthian columns in various sizes, The contractor had to collectively work together to bring this project in on time, exceeding the customer’s expectations for quality and performance. While the exterior of the home is adorned in architectural cast stone with a textured, rustic finish, the interior of the home is hand-carved from Mexican Coquina (i.e. Shellstone) for a smooth, refined feel. Many of the elements that are employed on the façade are brought inside the home to make a statement in the foyer and atrium and as gateways to the living areas of the home. In addition to manufacturing all of the architectural cast stone elements including; moldings, balusters, columns, finals, corbels, veneer panels, pavers, casings, wainscots, frieze and crowns and the Moorish Arches were created using Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete.
