The Architect’s Stone

Although granite has been used for thousands of years by mankind as a building material, it hasn’t been until recently that people have realized just how beautiful and durable it is. And although the stone is over a billion years old, it has a very modern appeal to it when utilized creatively. As a granite company in Ontario originating in 1929, HGH has seen granite used in countless ways.

It all began with our ancestor, Henry George Hardwick, producing memorials from a small building on Ottawa street. And over the past 90 years, we have seen constant innovation in the ways that the stone is used. While we still provide custom stonework to memorial retailers, we’ve also branched out to a multitude of clientele that use granite in a variety of ways. Municipalities, landscapers, and even the art community have begun to see just how special granite is, and the beauty that it emanates. Yet, one type of client has just recently begun using granite more than any other stone. Architects.

In this post, we’ll be discussing why granite has become the architect’s preferred stone when creating beautiful architectural features, and how the billion-year-old stone is finally getting to show its creative side.

Why Granite is the Preferred Material for Memorials

Though our granite company in Ontario has significantly evolved since then, and we’ve become the leading suppliers of granite to the landscape, art, and architectural communities, we still proudly fulfill all the needs of cemeteries, memorial retailers, and municipalities.
