ABOUT THE PROJECT

The clients, a couple with three children, wanted a home that would promote family interaction and active living, while providing views of the river.

In the words of Tom Hagerty of dSPACE Studio Ltd:
“We wanted to create a contemporary home. One that would be exciting, innovative and playful – with a warm and inviting material palette.”

The firm achieved their desired aesthetic with In-Essence porcelain tile.

“We originally specified board-formed concrete for the accent walls, but opted for the In-Essence Porcelain Tile instead.  We preferred the look over concrete, and the porcelain tile made it much easier to construct and insulate the walls. In addition, we visited Stone Source’s Chicago showroom looking for interior tile – but once we saw the scale of In-Essence (6” x 48”) we saw its potential use as an exterior cladding material. As an added  bonus, there was a considerable cost savings in switching from board-formed concrete to In-Essence Porcelain Tile.”

As for working with Stone Source, Tom says:
“Stone Source is excellent at accommodating the design process – providing samples, pricing, and technical information quickly and efficiently.”
