Ibiza Stone Project – private residence

Natural Stone Projects has recently completed a project on a contemporary private 9 bedroom villa on the island of  Ibiza. We supplied all the stonework, some 850m2 in total, internally and externally. This Ibiza stone project required bespoke finishes and sizes for all the tiles and cladding in a range of our cream limestones.

Special features for the master bathroom included a tile pattern of 13 different sizes in 3 different stones. The stones have different textures. This pattern was repeated in the entrance hall and on the exterior paving.

A contrast to the white limestone was provided in the master bathroom with 2 carved basins in a special selection of  black Magma Basalt. The basins had channels carved underneath to accommodate hand made steel brackets and allow the basins to appear freestanding.

The main feature of the master bathroom is the free standing wall at 2,5m tall x 1.25m wide and 20cm thick. The wall was carved from a solid block of travertine with a split face surface and had smoothed areas created for the bath and taps to fit snugly into.

The project required co-ordination of stone arriving from 6 countries and arriving safely and on time, in several shipments, to Ibiza. We worked closely with the designers, architects, our network of quarries and transport company on the Ibiza stone project to ensure the best results for the client and meet the required deadlines.

A BBQ area in rough hewn travertine, overlooking the bay is planned for the autumn

Natural Stone Projects is delighted to be collaborating with Faye Toogood, http://fayetoogood.com on The Cloakroom project at London Design Festival 2015 at the V&A Museum London. The festival runs from 19-27th September and this installation invites visitors to don one of  Toogoods hand made coats and use a hand drawn map to navigate the museum and find 10 coats , each created in a material representing a traditional craft.

Natural Stone Projects  hand made English Terracotta collection was selected for the Potters section. A figurative coat was assembled  by the Toogood studio from fragments of the deep red and brown tiles to echo the shape of the coat and of the original kilns.  The local clays have been used for over a thousand years to create terracotta  products and take on a  new creative guise at the Museum.

As well as the dark red and deep brown, a lighter colour range is available as seen below,to provide a medieval tapestry  like colour selection. Alternative traditional shapes are also avialable. Despite the ancient origins, these tiles with their coarse and slightly open texture have a raw contemporary appeal. A range of hand made clay wall tiles in traditional engobe style designs and delicate glazes are available to special order.
