The Vanderbilt Venue
Its was conceived by Juan Cao inspired on the Grand Central Station of New York. The project was directed by Architect Si Dang from Andria Design.
We design, fabricated and install an enormous 33 x 11 feet stone Mosaic based ond Sacred Geometry and Roman technique, which we named the Hermes Mosaic. We also help to design and fabricate an 11' functional clock: a Gold mirror produced by electroless chemical plating, a welded iron frame and rust patina.
The architectural fabrication continued with the addition of a Bas-relief arch on scagliola, treated with bronze powder adorning the elevator entry. Look up for the main area ceiling where rusted Embossed Tin panels are making a bold impression.
Houston Motor Club
Conceived by Castroparedes International, it is an opulent social club of Baroque craftmanship. Our partner Rafael Cueto and his colleague James Perez worked together as Cueto James in order to create walls covered in Gold Leaf and Glass Beads patterns.
The fine ebony finish on wood is accentuated by gilded carvings and lines. Panels on walls are covered in metal foils such copper, brass, and silver.
The used of Faux Bois is exemplary on a big cherry wood panel which carvings had been treated on graffite powder. Venetian plaster covers the walls of the fireplace, and the ceiling in the same area is adorned by Swarosky crystals.
It is no secret in Houston that Hakeem Olajuwon adquired the historical Jim West Mansion built in 1929 to launch his new clothing line DR34M. The project was conceptually-design and managed by Architect Asif Mumtaz.
Pearlescent mica plasters cover main ceilings and corridors, medallions and accents are made in Gold leaf in order to achieve an elegant taste.
The Main ceiling was cleaned and restored preserving the original personality of the mansion. Niches around the house are also accentuated on gold leaf patterns and a Bas-relief mural with birds and cubes was covered on copper leaf and chemically treated to produce a green patina.
THE STONE PAVILION
The Stone Pavilion was design by Sima. It has been closed for a while now but a couple of items we created there are worth to mention.
A couple of 16" tall panels inspired on Middle East geometric patterns, painted with pigments from the powders of three different semi-precious minerals: Lapislazuli, Azurite and Chrysocolla.
Every ornamental item into the geometricl lattice was gilded in 14 K gold.
