Sorry, this entry is only available in European Spanish.
We can produce any sort of fountain and basins, turning out a raw block inside and outside and shaping it into the client’s design. We use wire moulding machines, CNC machine and the expertise and skills of our stone masons.
Here you have the result:
Block different stages:
Most of Madrid subway stations are made in granite, following the original design of an Spanish famous architect, Antonio Palacios. He also designed the stations entrances with the already familiar iron banisters. And some sculptural syubway entrance gates, very famous, such as Puerta del Sol and San Luis in Gran Vía street.
Granilouro designed, produced and installed these new subway entrances in most of Madrid underground network. Our kerbstones have been adapted to the streets around the stations and even to the stairs. Always following the original design of the Architect Palacios.
All our projects come from the architects creations and designs. Each time we have to adapt those designs and ideas into real pieces and get everything in place with our clients desires. That’s what we do with our technical department and then in the factory. As an example here we show you some “fountains” in France and Germany.
We have made a world globe, dimensions 1.50m diameter and 5700 kg weight, from a raw Black Angola block.
This piece has taken a long production process involving different machinery and finished by hand by the artist F. Candán.
The process took more of 500 hours of work from the wire machine, polishing machine, and stone mason work, including all the previous study of the drawings on the globe.
Destination… Frankfurt – Germany.
The difficulty of the project was the fact of not being symmetrical, specific characteristic of the architect who designed the piece. The whole set is an original big size element.
A preassembly process made previously at our workshop guarantees the result.
Planters of great dimensions, treads, banks, kerbs and cladding. All made in grey Louro granite.
Bench and steps.
Supply of curved steps and angle parts in grey Pascual granite. Tactile blister paving in black Santiago granite.
The Plaza Mayor of Torrejón de Ardoz (Madrid) was paved in white, pink and red granites; and it goes beyond, to complete the streetscaping with unique pieces of all kinds: bases of lampposts, bollards, arches and cladding with stone for existing columns, including a sculptural block of great complexity.
The Plaza de los Reyes is paved with granites (Gris Mondariz, Azul Platino, Rosa Villar, Black Angola and Silvestre Moreno) and marbles (Ambar, Sierra Elvira, Cenia and Verde India).
On a side of this square stands a replica in Verde India marble, (now as a single monument) of the ancient gate of the Royal Hospital collapsed in 1931. The Kings San Fernando and San Hermenegildo, occupied the niches of the gate at the Hospital, and now they are back at their original position.
