Saving A Building And A Forgotten Work Of Art
In 2012, the City of Los Angeles and the Getty Conservation Institute funded a plan to restore a forgotten mural on the historic Italian Hall Building. As part of the restoration, the mural wall needed to be strengthened to reduce the likelihood of damage to the historical monument during earthquakes that often occur in the Los Angeles area.

Express Beauty And Interest With Natural Stone
Natural stone can add unique texture and elegance to a room, building, or outdoor space that can’t be achieved with other materials. Incorporating natural stone into interior or exterior settings can give both residential and commercial spaces a little something special. Whether you’re designing a residential space or a grand foyer in a public building, using natural stone is a guaranteed way to make a statement.

Onsite Masonry Production from Diverted Excavation
Watershed Materials is exploring a solution to a problem that real estate developers often face—excavation that has to be moved off a construction site to make way for new buildings. Rather than haul off the excavation spoils and then import thousands of CMUs for use at a pilot project, the developers and Watershed Materials are repurposing native excavation material to create the structural masonry blocks used in the development.

Iredale Mineral Cosmetics International Headquarters
Croxton Collaborative Architects recently completed the 21,000-square-foot international headquarters for Iredale Mineral Cosmetics in Great Barrington, Mass. Adding to the company’s smaller home base nearby, the new structure represents the rehabilitation of the abandoned 1886 William Cullen Bryant School building (and its early 1900s addition), a Massachusetts Cultural Resource, as a 21st century center of operations.

    Stone. The term doesn’t have the same meaning it did 50 years ago. There was a time when someone would say “I’d like to put stone on my project” and everyone had a pretty good idea what they were considering. That was then. The legitimacy of the word has completely…
