Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library
One of the most prized buildings in modern American architecture, The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University represents on the most novel uses of stone in the built environment. Designed by SOM, the 1963 building employs 1 ¼”
gray-veined, white marble panels (wrapped by light grey granite) to filter sunlight. The result is glowing warm interior and a bold, geometric expression on the exterior that stands in harmonious contrast to adjacent neo-Classical and neo-Gothic buildings that together frame Hewitt University Quadrangle, the site of Beinecke Library.
Featured Marble: Montclair Danby
Montclair is available in both fleuri (cross-cut) or Striato (vein-cut). Montclair Striato is similar to the Italian Zembrino marble.
Greenish to gray veins typically running diagonally or horizontally as with the Striato. Medium to heavy veining often used for book matching in fleuri cut. A beautiful and cost effective choice for kitchen countertops.
Available in slabs 2cm, 3cm & 5cm as well as standard tiles from 12 x 12 up to 24 x 24.
