Here is just a small selection of the projects that we have worked on over the years.

Buckfast Abbey, Devon

The commission was extended to include the design of new Purbeck limestone floors throughout the church and the design of a new Cosmatesque High Altar floor.  The floor was designed in the Cosmati tradition using red and green porphyry, Giallo Antico, Verdi Antico, Black & Gold marble, green onyx and Botticino Semiclassico.  All floors were installed on lime mortars using traditional techniques.
