Architectural stone from SSQ features in two-storey town house refurbishment

Architectural stone from SSQ features in two-storey town house refurbishment

Set in a residential suburb of Oslo, the interior of this listed, two-storey town house has been transformed during its refurbishment.

A large, deep basement was converted into additional living space and offered the opportunity to reconfigure the building’s internal layout.

Natural materials have been used to provide an ultra-modern look that’s as practical as it is stunning.

Just over 144m2 of SSQ Riverstone architectural stone (from the Honed and Natural ranges) were used in the project. Each piece was individually cut to meet a detailed cutting list and the entire order was ready for despatch within just three weeks of it being received.

In place, they create a wide stairway with an integral, stepped seating area on one side that cascades into the basement living room bringing with it light and space. And in each of the three bathrooms, subtle lighting highlights the rich colours and veining in the floor and wall tiles.

In the words of the architect: “I’ve specified Riverstone architectural stone on previous occasions so have no doubts about the ‘wow-factor’ it offers …The colour and texture of the stone complements the other natural materials perfectly … It’s a beautiful stone to work with and I’ll definitely use it again on future projects.
