Why we’d like it to inspire you…

Cullalo sandstone has been regularly quarried since the early 1800s and was used historically for many buildings in the central belt, throughout fife and in the New Town of Edinbugh.

Do you think this stone has been used in any of the buildings near you? Imagine how it would look after 200 years of weather?

Do you have any suggestions for another MATERIAL OF THE MONTH for Material Considerations: a Library of Sustainable Building Materials?

Or even another material? Please let us know!

Thanks!
