The Building Stone Institute – Tucker Design Award – Private Residence September 1, 2008 Connecticut Stone also won a Tucker Design Award for our work on the Private Residence in Glencoe, Illinois. We supplied materials for this innovative home based on English Arts and Crafts architecture and relying heavily on natural stone décor and landscaping. An excerpt from the jury comments: “The craftsmanship is outstanding. It appears as if the architect and stonemason collaborated throughout the design and construction. The choice to balance smooth and rough textures of stone and carefully combining the stone with other materials successfully emphasizes the warmth of each material. A true success story relative to the spirit of arts and crafts.” Download the full Building Stone Institute PDF.
