CODA. V cut letters into portland stone. We are coming towards the end of this commission. It has involved a great deal of masonry and heraldic carving too. Portland stone is a great material to work with and the deeper the letters are cut the better. They have to last.

Our other building on Portland Place. Speeding along the M1 many of us will be familiar with the bridge restaurant straddling the motorway at Leicester Forest East services designed by Howard V. Lobb & Partners. Perhaps less familiar is their work at 76 Portland Place, recently acquired by the RIBA for use as offices – note the RIBA headquarters (66 Portland Place) on the right.

Built for the City and Guilds of London Institute, the design of this elegant, steel-framed building clad in Portland stone was determined by the need to fit height-wise with existing buildings and limitations on window size. Core to the building’s current use is the ground floor staff 'forum' dining and meeting area which before being roofed over was originally a loading bay complete with vehicle turntable to turn mail vans in the restricted space.

Pretty much done. Quite small; panel is 375mm x 325mm so a lot of detail work with my 2mm chisel. Some initials to go on the shield and a tidy up. #stone #stonecarving #stonecarver #stonemason #stonemasonry #traditionalskills #skills #portlandstone #limestone #lion #heraldiclion #heraldry #heraldicbeast

Lafayette Building (1890s)

[go on...]
L'edificio si trova sull'angolo tra D'Olier Street e Westmoreland Street ed è un vero e proprio Landmark per Dublino, in netto contrasto con il vicino O'Connell Bridge House, più conosciuto come "Heineken Building".
[visibili entrambi nella foto precedente]
Lafayette Building perciò si trova esattamente davanti a O'Connell Street e deve il suo nome attuale ai famosi fotografi Lafayette.
Fu costruito nel 1890s per la "Liverpool and Lanchasire Insurance Company"; il linguaggio architettonico è vario, riprende lo stile gotico e le idee architettoniche di John Ruskin, che influenzarono molto l'estetica vittoriana e edoardiana. Le facciate sono decorate con numerosi particolari, simboli e richiami che ricordano la storia dell'edificio. Attualmente, dopo varie controversie, è diventato la sede del negozio del Manchester United e, come riporta The Irish Times, "it is surely ironic that Foley's statue of Daniel O'Connell, the Liberator of Ireland, should now gaze across the Liffey at a retail outlet for an English soccer team".

Another #lostbuilding of #london The “Royal Aquarium” or “ Westminster aquarium” Tothill Street, London.
Opened on 22 January 1876 and demolished 1902 to 1903.
#Designed by #alfredbedborough and #built with #portlandstone, The building was to emulate the grand #CrystalPalace but never really managed to have the same affect as the old Palace.
Quickly ran into trouble and was finally sold in 1902 to Wesleyon Methodist Church. The Methodist hall still stands today on the same site after being built in 1911.

O'Connell Bridge (1879-1882)

[go on...]
L'attuale O'Connell Bridge andò a sostituire il precedente Carlisle Bridge (1791-1794), troppo desueto per sostenere il traffico di carrozze che vi si formava sopra. Si pensò quindi di migliorare l'assetto urbano e di eliminare il problema allargando il ponte e portandolo a 70m di larghezza, allineandolo a quella che oggi è denominata O'Connell Street. Il ponte collega infatti la più celebre via di Dublino con D'Olier Street e le sponde meridionali ed è aperto al traffico.

Ora pedra, ora concreto, o Portland Stone é inspirado em um limestone de cores frias e acinzentadas. Na composição de ambientes internos e externos, os seus tons sóbrios são responsáveis por transformar o simples em algo sofisticado. Conheça e apaixone-se!
