MIA Announces Pinnacle Award Winners

Posted on 07 April 2015 by cradmin

MIA pinnacle winnerThe Marble Institute of America (MIA) announced the winners of the it annual Pinnacle Awards competition, which recognize excellence in commercial, residential and renovation/restoration of natural stone projects worldwide. Projects selected as winners must demonstrate exceptional beauty, creativity, ingenuity and craftsmanship in the use of granite, marble and other natural stones. Sponsors of the Pinnacle Awards are: MAPEI for the Commercial Awards; Blanco for the Residential Awards; and Coldspring for the Renovation/Restoration Awards. The competition is open to MIA members around the world.

The MIA also presented the 7th annual Grande Pinnacle Award, sponsored by Marmomacc. A Grande Pinnacle Award was also presented to the architect involved with the winning project. The Grande Pinnacle Award winner was Stones and Roses International Company Ltd. of Samutprakarn, Thailand, for the amazing Residential Interior/Exterior work on the Navathani Residence in Bangkok. Traditional Thai homes are usually built as a cluster of physically separated rooms arranged around a large central terrace. Interpreting the traditional typology of the Thai houses, the Navathani Residence consists in two parallel wings, separated by a large garden and a swimming pool. The objective of the stone architecture is to give a sense of unity and blend the building with trees, plants and other natural landscape. The choice of Thai travertine was selected for the main stone for the interior space and the stone featured on the façade changed to a minimalist grey basalt.

The architectural firm of Architects49 House Design Limited of Bangkok, architect for this project, was also presented with a Grande Pinnacle Award.
