Natural Stone Awards 2014 - La Maison de la Valette Jersey - Award Winner of Interiors

Located on the island of Jersey, this new Georgian house is an excellent example of the use of natural stone for an interior space.  The project was to be the client's family home and as a result, the owner was involved on a day to day basis, which, the judges felt may be one of the key factors in this project's success.

The project made use of Portland stone across a range of application, including the cantilevered staircase, cladding to the rear staircase, and paving.

This very large house, recently constructed, demonstrates what high standards can be achieved in all crafts when an owner persues excellence.  The interiors have traditional set stone floors throughout the house.  In the principal spaces the small corner insets of Belgium Black have been used.  Elsewhere the paving is perceived as simple stone pavers.  However on very close examination, these hard wearing and beautiful stone floors, as a result of thoughtful design, are as good as any to be found in our kingdom's great stately homes.  The layout of the tiles and the margins to each room ensure there are no odd corners, or unresolved junctions.  Each door opening, and there are many, has a perfectly balanced arrangement of pavers as they pass through and link on to the rest of this large house. 

Judges comments:- "simplicity, coupled with the beautiful quality of natural stone laid to such a high standard, cannot but help but to ensure an outstanding interior"
