stone flooring

These images are of a beautiful stone convent in Spain that was recently refurbished by a3gm architects.  The enchanting stone passageways are cast in deep shadow by wooden doorways and soft natural lighting.  There is a certain silence and contemplation contained within these spaces, appropriate to their purpose. A new layer of faceted stone flooring has been laid unobtrusively onto the old, its crispness contrasting with the texture and patina of the original.
