At Coverings 2019, we honored several special recognition projects that demonstrated spectacular craftsmanship and creativity in the use of tile & stone. This week we’re putting the spotlight on the Residential Stone Installation winner.
Carnevale & Lohr, Inc.
Los Angeles, CA
This stunning modern home is perched high above the Los Angeles skyline and features seven stone types in an array of finishes that seamlessly flow to wood, metal, glass and other materials.
The exterior of the home is clad in split-face Travertine, along with Bianco Lasa marble panels that cantilever out an amazing 30 feet. In the home’s interior, leather finish Cippolino marble paving was painstakingly end matched to create the illusion of one continuous piece of stone traveling through the whole level, under a bathtub made from a single block of Cippolino marble and transitioning into the master bath’s shower walls.
On this same level the kitchen is outfitted with a 15-foot-long book-matched Blue Lapis island countertop shaped at its perimeter with a “knife edge”, adjacent to a countertop and sink clad in bookmatched Cippolino marble.
Matched vein cut travertine paving covers the floor and seamlessly continues through the living room and out onto the exterior sundeck, terminating at the swimming pool which is completely bordered by travertine coping containing slots for drainage that allow the top edge of the pool’s water to become perfectly aligned with the top edge of the adjacent travertine paving, thus creating a level surface from the kitchen to the infinity edge of the pool.
Accessed by way of a backlit Onyx clad elevator, the home’s lower level is paved with matched vein-cut Travertine, traveling to three unique rooms. The Caretaker’s Bathroom, containing vein-cut Palisandro Bluemarble with a distinct linear pattern that covers the floor, walls, ceiling, and vanity, on its way to becoming shower walls shaped into unique picture frame moldings.
The Bungalow Bathroom, clad in dark Pietra d’Avola limestone, and the Guest’s Bathroom with a Travertine-clad shower, and a bathtub made from one single block of Travertine.
