The Royal Institute of British Architects AKA RIBA has revealed the winners of the its 2013 RIBA National Awards. We're proud to announce that StoneSuperstore was the chosen supplier of 2500sqm of Jura Grey Limestone on one of the winning projects.  

Q2 Architects specified Jura Grey Limestone to be installed throughout its Swan Square development in Manchester’s up & coming Northern Quarter.  Now fully occupied this well-considered series of three-storey start-up units is the perfect example of how to re-establish and invigorate an unloved, forgotten area of the city. 

With a limited budget, Q2 Architects and their client have successfully combined to show Manchester and other post-Industrial cities how to make their inner cities tick again.

With such low cost yet fantastic style & durability the Jura Grey Limestone from southern Germany was chosen.  Renowned for its beautiful encapsulated fossils and subtle tones of grey, this premium quality limestone is extremely durable making it practical for any contemporary or classic situation. StoneSuperstore are stockists of this fantastic limestone and can supply it in all finishes including tumbled, brushed, sandblasted as well as honed and polished. Along with the Jura Grey Limestone, StoneSuperstore stock Jura Beige Limestone and will soon be stocking the mixed Jura material as well.

Generally, our range of premium limestone tiles come in three surface finishes - honed, polished and tumbled. Each finish creates a different effect with tumbled giving a rustic more aged feel, honed being a smooth flat satin contemporary feel and polished provides a mirror shine to create a real sense of elegance and opulence. Jura Limestone is stocked in honed, polished, tumbled and sandblasted finishes.  It is extremely durable and suitable to used anywhere in the home, including externally in its sandblasted finish.
