Blue B Properties Mixing it Up

It’s wonderful to go into a room and recognize Italgres tiles. You know them because no one else has the same selection we have. We love how Blue B Properties mixed up the white marble 6×40 tiles and carpet 40×40 tile finishes in their conference room. We’re so proud to see our tiles outfitting more and more Miami rooms.

Sunny Isles Pinnacle Tower

We’re very proud of this project in Sunny Isles designed by the prestigious architects at Kobi Karp. This one was a challenge, but we figured out a way to cover the columns in tile. We used custom-made E-Stone Beige tiles, cut in long strips and mesh mounted. The result was fantastic, another work of art in the books.

Havana 1957 In Pembroke Pines

Havana 1957 Pembroke Pines Exploring Roots

 

This restaurant is like a portal that takes you straight to the Cuba of the old times. As a wonderful sliver of nostalgia and history, this traditionalist joint wanted to go back to its roots, and to that end, they looked for Italgres.

Havana 57  Pembroke Pines is outfitted top to bottom in one of our finest classic Cuban styles from a Spanish manufacturer. The Victorian Centro Gotic tiles make a perfect match with the throwback feel of Havana, in the most elegant iteration of the franchise yet.

Searching for the Best Tiles at Cevisama 2017

We’re super excited this year about Cevisama 2017. The annual trade show that takes place in Feria Valencia highlights the best European tiles with more than 700 exhibitors and 78,000 professionals visiting from all over the world. Stay tuned to our recap of the most noteworthy exhibitions this year.

The trends that visitors of Cevisama will be able to notice this year combine timelessness and neutral materials with an ever increasing range of formats, from the largest possible sizes to the smallest. Faithful reproductions of stone, marble, wood and cement are still very much in evidence, whilst other outstanding effects include pure metals, steel, terrazzo and ‘stracciatella’ finishes.

Richard Murphy gets the RIBA House of the year 2016

The house of the year of 2016 of the Real Institute of British Architects is the perfect example of innovation in design. The award is given to the new houses designed by an architect from the United Kingdom, and this year that person it went to Richard Murphy Architects.

The house is located in Edinburgh and was created by and for Richard Murphy. Each one of its 540 ft2 is naturally illuminated, besides making an intelligent use of its spaces to create a comfortable and complete home.

When the temperature changes during the year the house “opens” to receive the warmth of the summer and “closes” to retain the heat during the winter.

The architects describes his home as “a quarter Soane, a quarter Scarpa, a quarter eco-house and a quarter Wallace and Gromit, the latter referring to the various ingenious devices in the house. In fact the house is beautifully composed and uniquely his own”.

Check out his wonderful piece and tell us how you incorporate eco-design into your projects.
