Yes, stone is stone and brick is brick. One is a natural material and one is man made. Even though both are technically masonry each one provides a completely different aesthetic and within different architectural languages are not interchangeable. I’m not complaining one bit though. I prefer brick in all multi-family situations over stone with only the caveat that it depletes stampitecture.Is brick and stone really that different? Lmfao. Those renders are from like 10 years ago. Obviously we weren’t going to get an identical final product after three/four contractor switches.
