Terrazzo floor: the key element that brings a very deco and trendy graphic effect to our spaces
Terrazzo can still be seen everywhere – in residential spaces as well as in commercial projects. This atypical and undeniably interesting coating is a mix of colors and materials, characterized by its very decorative fleck effect. It is indeed a building material that mixes chips of natural stone and marble with white, gray or dark cements. Known since ancient times, this superb mosaic is one of the oldest techniques for sustainably and aesthetically covering floors, walls and counters. Our editorial wants to draw your attention to a family residence whose interior and exterior design promises you a good dose of inspiration. Read on and discover how terrazzo flooring works in a contemporary setting.
Graphic and happy terrazzo floor: trendy mosaic is back
In our article of the day, we present you a contemporary residence, located in Willagee, Western Australia. The Mountford Architects project was completed in 2016 and, currently, its residents are taking full advantage of all the comforts of a modern home. The architecture of the residence advocates refined geometry – one of the latest trends in the building. The dark brick facade gives the house a modern and distinguished appearance.
Terrazzo goes wonderfully well with neutral deco
When it comes to interior design, the terrazzo floor is definitely the one that catches the eye at the first glance. Due to its purified speckled effect, the mosaic flooring provides an exclusively modern graphic effect to the interior design. What really pleases this atypical material is the diversity of mixes it offers and, therefore, its ability to adapt to all environments.
In this case, the terrazzo floor is ingeniously integrated in a neutral and elegant setting. Combined with gray and black furniture, wood elements and a brick wall cladding, the “granito” is a versatile solution for all living areas.
