Blue Stone Awards - Explore blue limestone in a new way


Carrières du Hainaut launches a new original ideas competition for architects, interior architects, designers, landscape architects, stone masons and students. How can you creatively valorize choices and peculiarities of blue stone which are rejected for traditional applications? This is the challenge of the BLUE STONE AWARDS 2017.

Beauty and perfection are often associated with each other, but what about imperfection?

Is it possible to realize beautiful projects with materials that are rejected during the cycle because of their imperfections such as veins, white spots, white veins, high concentration of fossils, etc.?

Carrières du Hainaut believes so and is looking for realized projects and ideas/concepts that intregrate these forms of imperfections, which exploit certain aesthetic pecularities or technical constraints.
