Historic European Cobblestone® is authentic, 100- to 400-year-old reclaimed granite or sandstone cobblestone for driveways, walkways, patios and more. This is an exceptional collection of cobble and curb, originally quarried, hand trimmed and installed in village and city streets in Europe. The top surface is naturally weathered and worn after centuries of exposure to climate, foot traffic, horses and carriages. We offer reclaimed cobble in six different sizes and have the ability to slice the cobbles for concrete base installations. Historic Sidewalk Cobble® is a special reclaimed cobblestone originally used only in pedestrian areas. Historic Sidewalk Cobble has not been exposed to the dirt, oil, and eventual asphalt that covered many cobblestone streets. The tops are very flat and the patina is unmistakably genuine. Color range: warm grays and earth tones. Size: 5- to 6-inch squares x 2–4 inches high.
The Italian Hall Building that serves as the Italian American Museum of Los Angeles was constructed between 1907-1908. The ground floor of the two-story unreinforced brick masonry building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was home to several shops. The second floor hosted numerous banquets, weddings, meetings, and concerts. Located on historic Olvera Street, the building is part of the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Monument, a historic district that is the oldest section of Los Angeles.
Our firm, Croxton Collaborative Architects (CCA), a founder of the modern sustainability movement, recently completed the 21,000-square-foot international headquarters for Iredale Mineral Cosmetics (IMC)—manufacturers of jane iredale—in Great Barrington, Mass. A replacement for the company’s smaller home base nearby, the new structure represents the rehabilitation of the abandoned 1889 William Cullen Bryant School building (and its early 1900s addition), a Massachusetts Cultural Resource, as a 21st century center of operations.
