Marble Wrapped Corporate Reception Desk

Marble Wrapped Corporate Reception Desk

Marble Reception Desk

The reception area is the first thing a customer sees when they enter your business. Why not go all-in to create a big first impression? For this project, our client wanted to add a custom designed reception desk that would stand out in a large open entry space. The project designer, James Krygel, chose to wrap the rectangular sections of the reception desk in Greystone Marble to create a unique design focused around the angular graining of the Marble. 

Slabsmith Technology

Once the Greystone Mable slab was selected, Surface One worked with the designer to visual wrap the stone around the desk using our Slabsmith virtual imaging software. The designer on the project wanted the mirrored veining in the Marble slab to line up from the upper top all the way down the face of the reception desk to create a diamond pattern. With the Slabsmith software, we were able to visually show the client and designer exactly how the Marble would look wrapped around the desk. Our software shows all the cuts, seams and edges so you can see the final product before we make the first cut.

Mitered Lamination

Mitered lamination is the process of gluing pieces of stone together to create a mitered edge profile. For this project, the pieces of Marble were expertly cut to create a seamless edge between the top of the desk and the front and side panels of the desk. The mitered seams allow the pattern to “wrap” from the horizontal surface to the vertical surface. Surface One has extensive experience with mitering edges for commercial and residential projects. To learn more read our article “What is a Mitered Edge Profile?”

Cambria Quartz – Guest Services Desks

Custom guest services desks in the newly remodeled Montgomery Wind Creek Casino were fabricated by Surface One using Cambria Quartz. The mitered edges of the quartz countertops create a clean almost seamless design that extends down the sides of each desk to the floor. The deep black pattern of the Edinburough Cambria Quartz complements the vibrant metallic tile that it frames. Cambria Quartz is a popular choice for commercial environments because it is a strong, non-porous material that is resistant to stains and does not need to be sealed.

These newly remodeled Montgomery Wind Creek Casino restrooms feature Cambria Quartz in Edinburough and Bellingham. The rich black Cambria Edinburough adds style and sophistication while complementing a bold black and white patterned mosaic tile floor. The lighter Bellingham Cambria Quartz combines creamy undertones with darker waves of black and gray, adding a visual focal point to the bathroom. Cambria Quartz countertops are manufactured to be resistant to stains and bacteria. It is an excellent material for high traffic areas, such as commercial bathrooms, reception desks and food preparation areas.

The “Joe”

Surface One is excited to have been a part of the birth of the new “Joe”.  The newly renovated Sewell-Thomas Stadium is a state-of-the-art baseball facility that seats 5,500 with several new upscale club and dining options. Surface One installed Zodiaq Quartz countertops and bar tops in the .525 Club and the Home Plate Club.

The University of Alabama baseball stadium was originally constructed in 1948 as the Thomas Field. It was named in honor of Frank Thomas, a former Crimson Tide head football coach. In 1978 the University of Alabama baseball stadium was renamed Sewell-Thomas Stadium to recognize former Alabama baseball player and head baseball coach Joe Sewell. Joe Sewell had just been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977. Over time, the stadium has been through many renovations and is fondly referred to as the “Joe”.

The .525 Club

The .525 Club is a new upscale seating and hospitality area on the first base side of the field. Seating is covered. The hospitality area is climate controlled with a view of the field and includes flat screen televisions throughout the club.

The .525 Club features a long Zodiaq Quartz countertop in the bar and beverage area. Surface One fabricated Zodiaq Quartz laminated edges to create a seamless transition between the bar top and the counter top. Surface One also fabricated and installed Zodiac Quartz drink rails along the walls facing the field.

The quartz countertops in the .525 Club are all Zodiaq Cloud White and feature a smooth 2cm full bullnose edge.

The Home Plate Club

The Home Plate Club is a plush club area located behind home plate underneath the seating bowl. The sports bar atmosphere features bar and table seating with flat screen televisions through out the club.

Surface One fabricated and installed Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz countertops in the kitchen and bar area of the Home Plate Club. The focal point of the Home Plate Club is a long seated bar with Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz. The bar is framed by large columns coated in brilliant crimson red mosaic tile. The food preparation and serving area behind the seated bar also feature Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz backed by crimson red mosiac tile wall accents.

Zodiaq Quartz

Dupont Zodiaq Quartz countertops are nonporous, durable and easy to clean. The Zodiaq surface is scratch-resistant, heat-resistant and tough enough to withstand the bumps and spills that are common in food service areas. Zodiaq Quartz is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® and GREENGUARD Certified® for children and schools.

Zodiaq Quartz is an excellent choice for serving counters, bar tops, food preparation areas and other public venues. Zodiaq Quartz is available in  a range of beautiful colors without the need for sealing or polishing.

Benefits of Installing Silestone Quartz in Your Home

What is Silestone Quartz?

Silestone is a brand of Quartz countertops that are manufactured by Cosentino.  Quartz surfaces are a man-made product that is engineered using real quartz crystals blended with a small amount of polymer resins.  This engineering process creates a beautiful surface that is often lower-maintenance than other comparable natural stone surfaces. Silestone Quartz can be used for countertops surfaces, wall cladding and other design functions.

Bacteriostatic Anti-Bacterial Technology

Silestone Quartz is made with a revolutionary anti-bacterial protection called Bacteriostatic Protection, created by Cosentino. The innovative bacteria resistant technology has led to an entirely new category of countertops known as bacteriostatic countertops. The Silestone formula is based on silver ions and prevents the propagation of bacteria making it the perfect choice for kitchen and bathroom surfaces.

Durable and Scratch Resistant

Silestone quartz is resistant to scratches, easy to clean and durable. Non-porous and highly resistant to stains such as coffee, tea, wine, lemon juice and other potential kitchen spills make this a beautiful, as well as highly functional, answer to your new kitchen. One of the hardest materials in the world, silestone has polyester resin elasticity and is formed using a vibrocompression system during production.

Greenguard Certified

Silestone is an earth-friendly product that has received the Greenguard certificate proving that Silestone does not emit substances that are harmful to the environment and can be used safely in enclosed areas. Silestone has also been awarded the “Greenguard Children & Schools Certificate”, for safe us in schools and universities.

Cannes Creativity Award

Custom Surfaces for Brixx Restaurant

Custom Surfaces for Brixx Restaurant

The new Brixx Wood Fired Pizza in Hoover, Alabama, features Solid Surface and Quartz surfaces fabricated by Surface One.

Surface One recently installed the surfaces for the new Brixx Wood Fired Pizza located at Patton Creek in Hoover, Alabama. Brixx Wood Fired Pizza uses fresh ingredients to make pizza dough, meatballs, hummus and other featured items from scratch everyday.  It is a family friendly restaurant that serves high quality sandwiches, salads and gourmet pizzas cooked in a wood fired oven.

Brixx-Radius-Top-Surface-OneThere are several different custom fabricated surfaces showcased within the restaurant, including Zodiaq Quartz and Corian Solid Surface, both manufactured by DuPont.  The long curved bar top is custom fabricated Zodiaq Quartz in the color Savory.  Savory is a mixture of translucent stones within a mocha base. This extraordinary rich color with three-dimensional flecks coordinates beautifully with the Saddle Brown Zodiaq Quartz featured on the round serving area on the bar.  Saddle Brown is a contemporary color that is luxurious and rich in tone.  The Saddle Brown Zodiaq Quartz is also featured on some of the tables in the bar area.

Brixx-Corian-Tables-Surface-OneQuartz surfaces deliver strength and are heat and scratch resistant. It is an excellent surface material for food service and high traffic areas because it is stain resistant and bacteria resistant. Add to that the timeless beauty of quartz crystal and this material is an obvious selection for businesses as well as residences. The sparkling crystal within the Zodiaq surfaces are visually striking and utterly unique.

The custom fabricated tabletops in the dining area feature DuPont’s Corian in Rafia. The warm, yellow-based neutral color is reminiscent of straw with randomly spaced translucent particles. This rich color complements the other surfaces and the contemporary restaurant decor. Corian solid surfaces deliver high performance that is necessary in a restaurant environment, and incorporate outstanding aesthetics.

Brixx-Mitered-Edge-Surface-OneThe Surface One team is highly experienced in custom fabrication techniques for high quality design needs. The surfaces in the Brixx restaurant feature complex radiuses and circular tops.  The surfaces also feature an even more complex laminated edge that ranges from 3” to  6” thick.  Custom fabrication techniques were also used on a half wall within the restaurant that is clad in Quartz.  These sections were mitered together to create a seamless appearance that adds to the design impact.

“Your client did a great job and we are very pleased with their professionalism. This was not a standard job and they did exceptional work. Not just anyone could have accomplished this level of craftsmanship. The countertops really help make the décor hit the high mark we have set for ourselves in this new concept. One would need to actually see it to believe it.”
