of fine art
A testament to culture and heritage, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts represents a seminal project in Vermont Quarries’ portfolio. The Museum complex is comprised by three, street-fronting buildings, all interconnected. Our quarry has provided stone for all three buildings, spanning a 100-year construction timeline. In 2014, we were asked to again supply stone cladding for the newest addition seeking to “preserve the heritage building of the a nearby church, while providing a signature space within Montreal’s urban landscape.” Working closely Provencher Roy & Associate Architects of Montreal, 1,200 pieces of marble now wrap the addition. 24*48 panels, 2-inch thick, were installed on the façade in a similar configuration and veining patterns as they were in situ. The project represents a remarkable celebration of stone, legacy and culture for both the City of Montreal and our Quarry.
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.
