TERRAZZO LAB

You’ve arrived at the place where we have fun and experiment with new terrazzo blends. Some are live projects – including those where we’ve reclaimed materials from site – and others are just things we want to try.

Ceramic Tile Waste

We're always experimenting in our Terrazzo Lab! Here we took some broken ceramic tiles and mixed them into a new terrazzo. The original ceramic tiles included their coloured glazed finish, but the process of polishing the terrazzo surface removed the glaze to reveal the consistant warm tones of the terracotta biscuit underneath.

Reclaimed Victorian Bricks

An architect client is refurbishing a church for their new London office. They asked to trial samples using the yellow and red stock bricks reclaimed from the site, and test different terrazzo blends. Here are some of the results.

Plum & Green Coloured Cumbrian Slate

We tested a mix of plum coloured slate and green slate from the Burlington Aggregate quarries in Cumbria.

Reclaimed Portland Stone and Red Brick Facades

A leading firm of architects asked us to trial the reclamation of two facades in London to make new terrazzo floors for the new building on the same site. One facade consists of Portland Stone cladding, the other red brick. The project is ongoing and will involve on-site crushing of the reclaimed material, before transfer to our factory for tile production.Here you can see the results of 3 trials using different proportions of brick and Porltand Stone. The results are striking!
