This work-in-progress dormitory is breath taking. The elaborate stone work required and attention to the smallest detail is what sets this project apart. Every piece of stone is fabricated to an exact size and has its specific place in the wall– many with complex angles. Our Tennessee Crab Orchard Stone is found on the exterior, interior, and in the courtyards of this new, uniquely Tennessean project. Silvara provided the sawed Rubble for the wall stone, plus a sawed stone for flooring and steps in various interiors and exteriors. We at Silvara are proud to be a part of such an amazing project!
Our Tennessee Crab Orchard Stone was chosen for the exterior walkways surrounding the newly constructed Tennessee State History Museum. Sawn Tennessee Gray Stone was chosen for it’s modern, clean appearance and was sandblasted to offer a lifetime slip resistant surface. The outside skirting of the walkway is lined with our Natural Surface Gray Stone which is much darker in color and dramatically textured, creating a beautiful contrast between the two.
The focal point of the entire landscape is a magnificent fountain built of Tennessee Crab Orchard Gray Stone. This fountain is crafted from carefully fabricated solid Gray Stone blocks forming the main walls. A two-tiered wall allows the stone to protrude over the edge contained by an elevated wall, while the basin itself is lined with thinner gray slabs. The entire hardscape is tastefully illuminated and absolutely spectacular at night. Admission is free and is a must see for all traveling to and through the Nashville area.
