Modern Stonework

The owner of Jack Stack Barbecue wanted to update his Country Club Plaza restaurant’s classic ambiance with modern elements. The renovations included a new bar, bathrooms and the grand entryway—all to be installed in one week! 

Working with stone brought additional challenges. The minor issues consisted of having wall-to-wall floating vanities with handcrafted integral sinks in each bathroom. Fitting that just right with proper support can be difficult. The bar top has a beautiful custom mitered edge and several seams because of the enormity of its size. Executing tight seams and aligning vein flow takes time and skill.

The major challenges centered around the fireplace. Calacatta Macchia Vecchia marble that was hand-selected by the designer arrived cracked from the supplier’s warehouse, leaving little time to find new material.

This marble has beautiful veining in a floor-to-ceiling installation that wraps around the two-sided fireplace. The veins were carefully book-matched on each side as much as possible, given the layout and slab size. They were able to pull this off with only one section sacrificed, and that section is hidden from view.
