Native Land is delighted to announce that the nationally acclaimed sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, the creator of the magnificent Welsh slate wall at 10 Montrose Place, has won a Natural Stone Award.
10 Montrose Place, completed in 2007, forms part of Native Land’s unique collection of luxury residential homes. Situated between Belgrave Square and Grosvenor Place, the scheme is one of central London’s most exclusive addresses.
The Welsh slate wall which surrounds 10 Montrose Place, is 34.5 m long and a little over 2m high. It is constructed of 24,035 slates all 6mm thick and in three different sizes.
The annual Natural Stone Awards celebrate projects that have highlighted exemplary design and execution of the stonework. The strong field was judged by a team of internationally recognised architects with advice from stone experts.
The judges commented on the work at 10 Montrose Place; “Handling a simple boundary wall in a small street scene to reflect the quality of the gated development behind is not easy. This slate wall is a true work of art, beautifully designed and a joy to see.”
Andy Goldsworthy is a renowned British sculptor and photographer. Andy produces site-specific sculptures which can be found in both natural and urban settings. Besides England and Scotland, his art has been created at the North Pole, Japan, Australia and the United States. Andy works with natural and found objects, creating sculptures which highlight the character of their surroundings.
