(Washington, DC) Alexander Court won the Natural Stone Institute’s 2018 Pinnacle Award of Excellence for Commercial Interior. The 2018 Award Program describes that the project “[is] an ambitious project merging two existing office buildings into one larger structure, whose lobby is now the largest office building lobby in Washington, DC.” The building overall utilizes 90,000 square feet of stone. “Continuous vein pattern matching on the lobby walls, some as long as 180 feet, replicate the vein pattern of the quarry wall face.”

Juror’s Comment: “As good as you can get with a material that is complicated to use. The careful selection and control of this project truly embodies the beauty of Statuario marble and its unparalleled veining.”

The highly coveted Pinnacle Awards are given to projects whose beauty, creativity, ingenuity, and craftsmanship exemplify professional mastery in the use of natural stone in commercial and residential applications. The 2018 Pinnacle Awards were celebrated at TISE 2019 in Las Vegas during the Awards Ceremony.
