Szerelmey at the Natural Stone Awards 2016

Szerelmey are delighted to have taken home two Awards and one Commended, against some very strong competition, at the prestigious biennial Natural Stone Awards.

On the 5th December over 350 architects, designers, local authorities, client organisations and natural stone companies descended on London’s Grange Tower Bridge Hotel to celebrate the diversity and achievements of the stone industry. The event started with a drinks reception allowing attendees to network with friends and guests alike, followed by the awards presentation hosted by legendary personalities Jim Rosenthal and Michael Portillo.

7-8 St James’s Square, designed by Eric Parry Architects and featuring striking Impala Black and Porfido granite, Cabeca Veada limestone and a sculpture carved from black Charnockite by Stephen Cox RA, was the winner of two awards. The project (image below) was the Award Winner for the ‘New Build – Traditional’ category AND the ‘Sculpture, Carving and Lettering’ category. The judges said that “this was a building that exuded quality, being well designed to show a complete understanding of the use of stone.”

Adam’s Place, Canary Wharf, a recently completed hard landscaping project including a granite water feature and light-emitting bricks, also received a Commended in the Hard Landscaping category. The judges said the water feature, with its constant flow of 5mm of water running off each end “required excellent workmanship for this degree of accuracy.”

Congratulations to all the winners and participants of the awards and we are delighted to see the stone industry flourishing and producing such innovation and excellence. We hope to have many more completed projects to enter in to the 2018 Awards!
