Lafountain Project

Featured in this project are hand-sculpted and color dyed concrete “stones”, color dyed and stamped concrete “barn wood”, and an acid stained concrete bar top. This project was particularly challenging because the homeowner wanted a design featuring smaller, random drystack stones with angular joint lines, while his better half wanted larger drystack stones with level horizontal and vertical joint lines. They were so flustered with each other they told me to do whatever A.C.S. thought looked best.
To settle their domestic dispute, A.C.S. integrated a variety of small, medium, and large sized stones with straight vertical and horizontal rock lines. The process begins by applying concrete to the wall surface, also known as troweling, followed by adding multiple stone textures and rock carving techniques to the concrete’s surface. We then hand draw the stone design into the fresh concrete and relief and detail each individual stone so that every stone has its own identity.
To highlight the stone work we decided to picture frame the wall and archway cutouts with concrete barn wood. The projects centerpiece though is the mammoth 14’x30” wide concrete bar top. The bar top surface features granite texture with two different acid stain colors applied using a swirling technique, a chocolate dyed double fancy countertop edge, an epoxy sealer and polyurethane finish.
