Abuelitos Of Architecture

I bet you can’t guess the oldest known element of architectural stone.. columns.

The column is 4600 years old. The earliest known existing columns originated in Persia and were built between 400-500 BC. These columns were referred to as Persepolis columns.

The ancient Greek and Roman civilizations expanded upon the Persepolis columns with the classical orders of architecture. These classical orders are referred to as Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. Each order has a distinct style with the Corinthian the most intricate.

Larry’s Cap Rock & Stone fabricates each order of columns. We use state of art technology combined with hand craftsmanship to create distinctive architectural stone elements for your residential or commercial property. You can observe the progress at our state of the art fabrication facility in South Florida.
