Architectural Case Studies
Chilstone have worked on a wide variety of architectural stonework and garden landscaping projects throughout the UK and abroad. On this page you can find out more about some of the projects we are most proud of including The Laskett, Sir Roy Strong's spectacular private gardens on the Welsh borders. Homewood Ridge House in Langton Green is a great perfect of an architectural stonework scheme that is not only sympathetic to the design of the property, but also the houses in the surrounding area. We will be adding a wide variety of projects - hopefully providing further inspiration.
We were approached by local developer Neil Truman who wanted bespoke stone for his contemporary design with full working drawings and CGI with the simple brief of “I have always wanted to build a house with black framed windows and stone surrounds, can you help?”
Neal, of Sennocke Construction is experienced in producing prestige housing projects with an excellent finish to be proud of. We used a combination of standard moulds and bespoke handcrafted items to achieve his vision. Chilstone worked with Neal using Auto CAD to draw up plans for approval prior to manufacture.
The front entrance arch surround was cast to a unique design, using a block layout with many more individual stones than would normally be seen. This allowed the joints to be an integral part of the design, combining function with beauty.
Chilstone worked closely with Neal throughout the design and manufacture process, allowing us to supply the stone units required for each stage of the build to fit with Neal’s project timings.
A great working partnership utilising our combined expertise, has produced a product tailored to Neal’s original design. Our Stone added an elegance and kerb appeal to the property that we are very proud to have produced.
“From initial enquiry through to final delivery Chilstone have provided and excellent service and a top quality product. Full working drawings and bespoke sizing of materials made the product easy to fit, minimising fitting time on site.” Neal Truman.
