International Award for North America
SILVA VILLA, ORLANDO (FLORIDA). UNITED STATES
The Jury grants the International Award for North America to SILVA VILLA, located in Orlando (Florida), which, with almost 3000 square meters of surface, contains 700 cubic meters of Nessuna limestone. The project, supervised by the team of architects Nasrallah Architectural Group, is a great stone work. The material, placed both indoors and outdoors, on floors, walls and classic elements such as pilasters, railings and columns up to seven meters high, together with the factory work of the Marble Region, which has required the care of even the smallest detail, turn this work into a unique and wonderful architectural piece.
