The choice of New Yangtze Limestone for the modern addition to the Mercy Hospital in Buffalo, New York was relatively simple. With the new wing, the legacy of handcrafted building stone is both maintained and extended. Our dramatic point stalk finish – a signature of Rhodes Architectural Stone – provides contrast and texture to the stainless steel fixtures and ultramodern sheet glass. Although the color variation from stone to stone has limited range, it brings the tapestry of rectangular forms alive.


The stonework extends past the elevator lobby and onto the street as the wall form is expanded to retain the plantings.

As you'd expect in a natural product, stone does vary in colour and texture, even in the same quarry block. That's what makes stone so unique.
We recommend using the images on our website to initially chose the colour, texture and look you prefer, then talk to us to see our current samples. Mockups are also a great option before making your final decision. We strive to provide a product of the highest quality, but please remember it's stone, not paint. The colour and texture of the next layer in the quarry was defined millions of years ago.
