We’re all about smart Adaptive Reuse of unique salvaged stone elements and their meaningful reintegration into living spaces.

Even when installed in the most modern of settings, our objects will hard wire you with the Natural Order and the Matrix of human consciousness.

It’s most unnatural to clutter a home’s energy flow with purposeless items without pondering if they feel right in your space.

Selecting looks over essence plagues western home design. Since our youth we were trained to see with our eyes and not our hearts. There’s a spiritual human component to ancient limestone that will help anchor the users in a safe environment as they navigate the high seas of life. The lasting value of antique stone reinforces the notion of home, family and roots no matter if home was a small desert hut or an ocean front compound.

Like the succession of seasons, years and eras, the adaptive reuse of old stone elements mirrors the upward spiral motion of change through space and time. Having imbued so much history, ancient limestone will infuse this essence back into your environment much like an essential oil diffuser will fill a room with its scent.

Adaptive reuse of stone slows ‘design appeal loss’ while contributing to the growth, and continuity of a room within a home the same way spring water keeps vegetable gardens growing healthy year long.

“Genuine places worthy of our affection are created through the process of gradual adaptation.”

‘The Geography of Nowhere’ a book by James Kunstler presents a very readable argument for preventing the “placelessness” of a new construction that is detached from its surroundings as the author puts it.

According to Kunstler, The average human, who went to school in a building modeled on a textile factory, who works in a suburban office building, which lives in a raised box, who vacations once a year to a tourist trap would not recognize a soulful building full of subtle nuances “even if a tornado dropped it in his front yard”.

Professor Kunstler continues: “The modern classical European architects, interior and landscaping architect are sometimes at a disadvantage to architects of past centuries who had a more direct connection with the ‘terroir’ and had a greater ability to discern the authentic from the contrived”.

Adaptive reuse as followed by ‘Monolithic Stone’ focuses on the human being first, on sacred geometry and the classical proportions of stone elements. This is what sets us apart; this is why we are in a class of our own.

If what you have read and seen here resonates, then our elements are right for you and for the space you chose to surround yourself with.
