Latourette Farm, New Jersey, USA

Latourette Farm, New Jersey, USA
An elegant classical building of Ketton limestone, that looks truly at home in this rural setting in New Jersey.The simple elegance of this building still gave Ketton Stone Ltd a high challenge. The curved wings with large arched windows create a wonderful space each side of the building however, placing arches into a curved wall demands high disciplines in setting out, working and fixing of the masonry units. The geometry and understanding of such works are in the principals of “Ramp and Twist” geometry, but from an initial glance, such complexity would not reveal the true masons efforts and skills. 1200 Tons of Ketton stone was shipped fully worked, to the USA without damage.
