Architects Used Indiana Limestone for Landmark 15 Central Park West Location

Oolitic, IN (PRWEB) July 14, 2014

Robert A.M. Stern Architects, New York, received a 2014 Tucker Design Award June 25 for the outstanding use of limestone at 15 Central Park West, one of New York Citys premier residential buildings. The limestone on the building's facade was supplied by the Indiana Limestone Co., Oolitic, Ind.

The biennial Tucker Design Awards honor those who have achieved excellence in design through the incorporation and innovative use of natural stone in their buildings or land. These prestigious juried awards, sponsored by the Building Stone Institute, were presented this year at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Unity Temple, Oak Park, Ill.

Award winners were selected by jurors Blair Kamin, architecture critic for the Chicago Tribune; Duncan G. Stroik, principal, Duncan G. Stroik Architect, LLC, South Bend, Ind.; and Peter Lindsay Schaudt, FASLA FAAR, partner, Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects, Chicago. The jurors chose 12 winning entries from 85 submission binders.

The awards were presented by BSI 2014 President, John Grubb, Charles Luck Stone and BSI Executive Vice President, Jane Bennett. RAMSAs award was accepted by Peter Morris Dixon, the firms Director of External Communications.

Indiana Limestone is a leading supplier of prime limestone for prestigious building projects across the United States and Canada. The Building Stone Institute is an industry advocacy group promoting and advancing the use of natural stone.

15 Central Park West is among New York Citys most celebrated residential addresses, offering its residents world-class amenities and dazzling views of Frederick Law Olmsted's masterpiece park. The design was begun in 2005 and construction was completed in 2008. The elegant building echoes New Yorks grand apartment houses of the 1920s. Its limestone façade was cut from the same Indiana quarry that produced stone for the Empire State Building.

Its a particular honor that RAMSA selected Indiana Limestone for 15 Central Park West, said Tom Quigley, CEO of Indiana Limestone Co. This design choice identifies the building with a rich architectural tradition in New York and around the nation. Needless to say, it also imparts a beauty and permanence all its own to 15 Central Park West.

This years Tucker recipients were feted June 26 at BSIs Meet the Winners reception.
