You don’t have to be a football fan to appreciate terrazzo – but if you are, you might like the footie connection with one of our limited edition designs. Tottenham Hotspur was founded in 1882 (when Diespeker was celebrating its first birthday), and the club had always played their matches at White Hart Lane. Spurs decided way back in 2007 that they needed to upgrade the stadium.
The project wasn’t just to rebuild the stadium, but also to create the Tottenham Hotspur experience, Lillywhite House, club buildings plus 585 new homes, community facilities, retail spaces and educational establishments. The stadium, the ‘Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’, opened in April 2019 as the second largest club ground in the country. Old Trafford still holds the top spot! Costs for the whole project are estimated at around a cool £850M.
So where does the Tottenham terrazzo come in?
Well, Spurs designed a stunning bespoke blue resin terrazzo themselves to use as flooring in the new VIP lounges. There’s no doubt that it’s a stand out design, with a deep blue background, large white marble chunks, and blue and yellow chippings.
After the build was finished, some of this terrazzo was surplus to requirements so guess who snapped it up!
We have limited stocks of TE108, and once they’re gone, they are well and truly gone. Available in slabs of 20mm and 30mm thickness to be cut to size, it’s ideal for countertops, shelving, vanity tops and flooring.
If you happen to be a Spurs fan you might delight in having a piece of the new stadium in your home. If you’re not a fan, you’ll appreciate the terrazzo for its individuality and depth of colour.
