To get the ultimate Art Deco look, Diespeker supplied terrazzo for a refurbishment project by Holland Harvey. The 1930s apartment was refurbished to combine contemporary design with a nod to the origins.
Terrazzo was a popular material for flooring in the 1930s Art Deco period so fitted the brief perfectly. Diespeker terrazzo, standard and bespoke, was utilised in the kitchen and master bathroom.
The new kitchen uses terrazzo TE007 for the main countertop and a kitchen island. This terrazzo design works perfectly with the wood panelling and the blue accents on cupboard doors and shelves. The countertop is 30mm thickness with cut-outs for sink and hob, with a glossy polished finish.
In the master bathroom, terrazzo TE018 was the choice for floors, cladding and countertops. A neutral terrazzo, it works perfectly within the monochrome setting which includes black Richlite for the unit doors.
With the reinstatement of previously blocked-up windows to welcome in light, and a sensitive enlargement of the master bedroom, the finished refurbishment resulted in a bright, spacious and welcoming apartment.
