Using Natural Stone in Modern Commercial Buildings
Ridgeview Banks in Virginia have officially opened two new branches in Salem, VA and Smith Mountain Lake, VA. Thanks to the partnership of G&H Contracting and Thompson Masonry, both of these projects feature a unique design that accentuates the qualities of a bank you can count on.
Every good bank need a strong and stable foundation. Ridgeview Banks are supported by natural stone foundations utilizing Stoneyard Greenwich Gray Ledgestone Natural Thin Stone Veneer. Natural stone veneer is extremely durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions. It is resistant to fading, peeling, and chipping, making it a long-lasting option for commercial exteriors.
The addition of natural stone into modern commercial building design can add a historical and timeless element into the structure. The beauty and durability of natural stone have made it a choice building material throughout time. When used in modern design, it creates a juxtaposition between traditional design elements and the new, pairing simple, sleek lines with aged, rustic colors and textures. This combination of elements can build depth and character to a commercial building, making it stand out in a sea of glass and steel.
The third Ridgeview Bank location will be in Roanoke, Virginia and will feature a similar design concept as these two branches.
