    How they look! 

    All those work-in-progress pics posted earlier lead to this… Look beautiful. Adhunik Brown 75mm thick granite benches. That cavity serves as a planter. A few years hence, there’ll be trees, and lot of shade, god willing, and the promenade may just become a lovely place to hang out…

    Hill-shaped building 

    Transamerica Pyramid San Francisco

    We are not ‘architects’. But since we supply material to building projects, it isn’t hard to keep wondering about the shapes these buildings take.

    Of course, we don’t have a say in anything related to shapes whatsoever. We are mere suppliers of flooring material. At best, we may have a say in ‘quality’ of the flooring material we supply.

    Why must a building always feel like a cuboid block? An efficiency-based answer is the best I can muster. That’s it. No more.

    I would like buildings that are hill-shaped. We like hills, right? We love hills. If not hill-like they can at least turn out triangle-shaped if they have to be skyscrapers.

    These guys in San Francisco named it Pyramid! Alright, let’s bear with it.

    Is flooring a part of the furniture? If you say ‘obviously not’, what happens or changes if you treat it as part of furniture?

    Granite Benches 

    Preparing these 75mm thick granite slabs for granite benches. The benches will stand rock solid, of course, and may be for eternity. It’s tough handling such stone. Guys tough it out. Thankfully the weather has relented too in the last 2 days. Courtesy, the Vayu cyclone near the coast of Gujarat.

    Crazy Horse & Zalzala 

    You may be pardoned to think of these as names of movies. In fact, Bollywood surely made a multi-starrer blockbuster Zalzala decades back. Crazy names for granite but I am sure you are gonna like what you see for Crazy Horse.

    Doesn’t that look like a pattern of an Appaloosa?

    I remember Zalzala featured Dharmendra and Karan Kapoor and a couple of other famous actors!

    We may help with some lovely crazy patterns in granite in Ahmedabad. Elsewhere too, if you like.

    Ever compared a scratch on natural stone with a scratch on vitrified tile, timeline and space almost remaining the same?

    Just because a vitrified tile is easy to lay doesn’t mean it is easy to enjoy. Oh the gloss, that’s so TV-like.

    First they demand big big natural stone slabs, granite slabs, and then they demand ‘top’ quality, and then they funnily get down to bargaining for the lowest prices. Understandable since the quantities are often huge. But the thing is it is natural stone.

    Big slabs
    Should be top quality
    Should be lowest priced!
    What poetry!

    ‘Big building business’ has an issue. They behave like government purchase departments. Lowest quote, highest quality. Now where have you found that? And they themselves often struggle to lay down the parameters or even develop the ‘eye’ to judge whether some piece of stone is great or not.

    Taj Mahal doesn’t have the greatest quality of white stone. What it does have is the highest quality of craftsmanship.

    Intriguing Intersection 

    When colors and repetition and irregularity intersect

    And since I find irregular natural stone magical, I think this is a great idea. Have a block of irregular looking granite paving stones with different colors and then repeat that block over and over. Fair amount of intrigue and fair bit of ease in laying. Very very doable.
