Diespeker has recently completed a mixed materials commission for a private residence in Westminster.
The project included 70m² of the standard range terrazzo in Botticino (TE005). One interesting feature of the flooring for this project was a specification for no joints, so the terrazzo was poured in situ.
In addition, the Bottocino marble aggregate within the traditional cement based terrazzo was over-sized with chippings of 15-25mm where usually the aggregate is less than 12mm. Laying and trawling such large aggregate was quite a challenge for the installation team but one they carried out to their usual high standards.
As well as the flooring, three bathrooms and cloakrooms were clad, floors and walls, in marble Rosso Levante (MA122), a dark red marble with a distinct white vein. This required around 250m² of this dramatic natural stone. Kitchen and utility counter tops in Indian Multicolour granite were supplied, and exterior work included Portland stone stairs.
The £300K project was carried out for Building Contractor Scott Osborn.
