Natural Stone-Innovation Training

from Filipe Martins Project Office

A special day at Natstone, as we had the honor of receiving a visit from the prestigious Filipe Martins Project Office at our factory. It was an enriching occasion during which we enthusiastically discussed the importance of using natural stone from our region.

Upon entering the factory, the group was kindly guided through every stage of stone transformation, from its raw state to the transportation of the final pieces. Each process was meticulously explained and demonstrated, revealing the high level of technology and production capacity that characterizes Natstone. The precision of the manual finishes and the skill permeating the entire process of natural stone transformation impressed the visitors.

In addition to the stages of natural stone transformation and environmental concerns, the visit of the Filipe Martins Project Office to Natstone also provided an enriching discussion about the numerous applications of this versatile material in various areas of architecture and engineering.

The architects and engineers present were able to explore the various possibilities that natural stone offers, enriching their perspective on its use in a wide range of applications.

During the meeting, multiple uses of natural stone in exterior and interior projects were addressed, such as paving for outdoor areas, curbs, walls, cladding, and even pools. Its durability, weather resistance, and aesthetic touch bestow a unique elegance upon these spaces, making them true testimonies of harmony between nature and human construction.

In the context of interior projects, the possibilities of natural stone are equally vast. From interior flooring to wet areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms, natural stone stands out for its beauty and functionality, adding a touch of sophistication to the environments. Stone-carved sinks become true pieces of art, adding value and exclusivity to the spaces where they are incorporated.

Furthermore, the discussion covered the new finishes and fine cuts that have been developed at Natstone. These innovations allow the creation of unique designs and patterns, meeting the most demanding aesthetic demands of contemporary projects.

Locally extracted natural stone received special attention, as it is a valuable source of identity and regional wealth. By using this stone in projects, we value the culture and history of the area, creating a unique connection between the built environment and the surrounding landscape.
