The charm of yesteryear...

03 september 2015

This magnificent project confirms that natural stone can result in endless creations in different residential settings. In the search for authentic, rustic materials for this classic home, architect Karel Sichien from Schellebelle, Belgium selected Pierre de Bourgogne, a French limestone. A successful combination of this rural stone in a Vieux Manoir finish and the impressive ironwork allow the impressive staircase in the hall to shine in all its glory. By choosing a half-rounded nose finish for the steps and a rounded head for the first step, the architect has confirmed the setting's rural character. The adjacent floor was skilfully placed in a modular flooring pattern to complete the picture!
