Best Cast Stone on a Small Project

Monsieur George Hotel & Spa, Paris (2020)

Haddonstone completed a bespoke stonework project commissioned by world-leading interior designer Anouska Hempel.

The project required our expert team to design and produce 18 bespoke cast stone brackets for the interior, façade and main entrance of the newly renovated Monsieur George Hotel & Spa, Paris.

The brackets were transformed into beautiful stone accent lights and illuminated from behind by a warm white uplight, that will complement the hotel’s overall exquisite style.

Supreme Overall Cast Stone Project (One)

Marshes Shopping Centre, Dundalk, (2005)

Haddonstone was responsible for the stonework facades of the new 410,000 sq ft Marshes Shopping Centre at Dundalk, County Lough.

Efforts were concentrated on the entrance of the building, which was flanked by two imposing columns with Corinthian capitals.  A temple was also used as a cupola above the pediment.

Quoins were used on all the corners of the building and the company also provided custom-made window surrounds. Half columns and balls and bases were also used.

Haddonstone was only allocated 11 months in which to complete their part of the project – and managed to complete on schedule despite the scale of the task.
