This is why we’d like to share the bold custom terrazzo floor designed by Do Architects for this apartment in Lithuania:
1// In a nutshell:
Thanks to a bold custom floor design, Lithuania-based DO Architects managed to transform an average urban apartment into one of the latest and probably most striking examples of a terrazzo trend that seems just doesn’t want to come to an end.
2// What draw our attention the most:
A long panoramic glass façade playfully slides around the unique terrazzo floor, made by using big scale marble, granite and travertine pieces, joined together with a white concrete binder. Natural stones have been positioned with extreme care and precision to create this unique floor drawing where different shapes, colors and edges combine together to bring a unique design to life.
The formal arrangement of these large pieces encapsulates memories of ancient palaces as well as more contemporary and abstract collage art works.
The terrazzo floor becomes a background for every thoroughly thought detail in the living room. Roughly textured walls absorb the sun rays and create various shadows while warm yellow curtains cover the glass façade and calm down the direct sunlight that enter through it.
A series of wooden wall panels, partly ribbed in the lower and upper sections, separates different zones and add a sense of warmth to the living areas. The light reflected on the natural wood wall panels warms up the colder terrazzo floor and the concrete staircase and add a cozier feeling to the space.
3// The bigger picture
If you have followed Eclectic Trends long enough, you may recall our earlier posts about how natural stones give endless possibilities to illuminate interiors, the first informal introduction of the use of terrazzo we did. Since then, we have shown you several terrazzo projects. The fortune of the Venetian agglomerate seems to never come to an end among interior designers and architects!
May it be for its infinite declinations and adaptability, we are sure we will see new examples soon.
