After careful consideration, award-winning designer Rob Turner had made the decision – he needed a single source partner for slab surfaces in the exquisite home he was building on Millionaires Row on Lake Sheen, Orlando.

“We agreed we wanted surfaces that were as durable, hygienic, easy to work with and clean as they were beautiful and sustainable,” says Turner who, since 2022, owns and operates CRT Studio Interiors out of Winter Park, Fla. “In hindsight, it seems like a daunting task but, truth be told, we found that single source partner almost immediately in Neolith.”

The property

Located on four and half acres of waterfront property, the two-story, 7,461 sq. ft. contemporary home consists of four bedrooms, four full baths, two half baths, an elevator, four car garage and a generous outdoor living environment with lakefront patio, pool and 2,450 sq. ft. pool deck.

A multi-million-dollar project completed in 2022, the home has already served as a stunning venue for many events attracting designers, architects, and builders.

The fit

“We aspired for durable, practical, and sustainable beauty in a total of nine areas of the home including interior and exterior spaces,” says Turner. “Neolith not only matched our immediate needs, but they did so while giving us a great assortment in terms of color, sizing and finishes. And we got the products on time and in top shape with the constant support of their Florida distribution center.”

Turner selected Neolith Calacatta Luxe for both the kitchen island and backsplash. This choice was contrasted with Neolith Basalt Black design in satin finish for the worktops, which created a strikingly stunning space – and one that can sustain spills, stains and the high entertaining use the homeowners expect for years to come.

Neolith Strata Argentum was used for the bar top, powder bathroom, fireplace area and hearth for a warm, comfortable but elegant space. Neolith Phedra was selected for primary bath countertops and office tabletop, and Neolith Iron Frost for the secondary bath countertops.

Neolith was also selected for the exterior of the home for its durability and resistance to weather, so Neolith Basalt Black was used in both the barbecue and outdoor fireplace.
