Contemporary New Audi Dealership Features New England Stone



A brand new Audi dealership was recently completed in Natick, MA. This ultra-modern commercial structure features a design that incorporates many different elements. Glass, steel, and stone work together to create a sleek contemporary design. The clean, straight lines in the metal and windows are carried through to the Boston Blend Strips stone which was used on the retaining walls. The sleekness of the glass is contrasted by the rough, organic surface of the natural stone.



The Boston Blend is comprised of different stones that are native to the New England area. The vast array of colors in the Boston Blend are carried through the entirety of the design. The steel grays of the metal, the cool blues of the glass, and even the red in the Audi sign are all picked up by the colors in the stone. The multiple tiers of landscaping soften the look and bring in an added element of nature.



The Boston Blend Strips is one of our newest, and most contemporary shapes. Each piece of stone is 1.5 inches in height, 1.0 inch thick, random lengths, and sawn 4 sides with a textured face. Strips is the best shape to use on a modern project with clean, straight lines. It is available in all 6 colors: Boston Blend, Greenwich Gray, Colonial Tan, Vineyard Granite, Newport Mist, and Nantucket Brown making it possible to fit perfectly into any design scheme.
