Material Counterpoint

Rendering of the Calza Studio Apartment.

 

The wall material concealed behind a layer of render is a mix of stone, brick, and occasionally wood. The hand of the mason is clearly visible: a result of working with diverse materials that, at the time of construction, had little standard dimensions. The design calls for leaving this texture exposed at select locations. The roughness of the wall will create a beautiful counterpoint to the refinement of the white Venetian Stucco that we specified.
