Natural stacked stone veneer panels from Norstone were installed at the Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center in Rockport, MA, USA.
Designed by Epstein Joslin Architects, the Rockport performing arts centre features Norstone Ochre Blend Rock Panels, a range of natural stacked stone veneer panels, throughout the main performance hall and lobby areas. The excellent texture of the stone in this cladding application enhances the hall's acoustic qualities by streamlining the disbursement of sound.
Norstone was also able to match the colour of the Ochre Blend Rock Panels to the natural stone found along this part of New England's Rock coastline.
Endorsing the quality and beauty of the natural stone product, Alan Joslin of Epstein Joslin Architects said:
“An understatement that the stone looks superb! It is breathtaking. Simply even more powerful and beautiful than imagined. It makes one feel as though the hall is part of the rocky shore in the distance. It is exactly where your product is meant to be, and will be a central part of the narrative of the building and musical experience.”
