In Construction: Tribeca Loft Stone Fabrication
We’re lucky to feature some exceptional stonework in the Tribeca Loft project. All stone for the project comes from a single block of vein-cut Pele de Tigre marble, sourced and fabricated in Cartaxo, Portugal by Quarry Collection GBI and shipped to New York.
We took full advantage of the block: book-matching and diamond-matching large expanses of stone, such as the full slab walls and floors in the Master Bath wet room and Kitchen backsplash; utilizing extra thick slabs for Kitchen counters; and, perhaps most stunning, creating a hand-carved sink and vanity top out of a single block of marble.
Vein-cutting the block yielded exceedingly straight, thin black veins, which, paired with the various forms of matching, have resulted in a strong graphic look that contrasts with the pale european, white oak floors used throughout the loft.
