George Tsourapas - Living Stones

We have been collaborating with Madstone for the last 10 years in the field of procurement and installing marbles in London, Qatar and United States using our materials globally sourced. I would like to express my personal and company sincere thanks to you and your team for the efficient and high end services you have been providing us in our projects. We thank you for your commitment in delivering on schedule as per the specification

Marriot Marquis Hotel – USA

The hotel includes more than 100,00 square feet of event space with a grand marble lobby with a 130-foot atrium skylight. The signature element of the atrium is the 5-axis CNC/Waterjet floor that required high precision inlaid black patterning of the New St Laurent Marble into the Sivec White to represent a cherry tree branch that pays homage to Washington’s DC emblematic cherry trees.

The design required for an elegant white feature assembled by 2160 pieces of 3 different thicknesses and 2 different miniature dimensions of Sivec White which were delivered to Orlando for assembling by Bluworld, a well trusted indoor water feature and fountain designer and contractor, before the installation in the Marriot Marquis’ atrium.

In various wall locations within the hotel at the atrium and nearby the main conventional hall entrances, Greek Honey Onyx was applied to the internal walls. The architects upon their visit in our onyx yard they selected slabs that deliver the required book-match final effect. All pieces were selectively produced and dry laid in the factory prior packaging and shipment in an effort to successfully meet the design intent requirements.

The reception area is in-captured by a high precision circular registration where the uniquely large central Silver grey marble piece was especially quarried for this particular installation. The silver grey marble, offering a white-grey pathway from reception to the guest room, decorated all the corridors and areas outside the elevators well as the reception and concierge desk. The oval cladding shape of the main atrium was covered using the CY limestone, which was produced in big blocks before crafting the different unique curved designed pieces for specific locations on the wall and around the 56-foot metal sculpture at the centre of the atrium.
