Moon Garden glows in this Kingston timber wonderland.

Moon Garden glows in this Kingston timber wonderland.

Terrazzo stone, for all of its star-qualities, also has the unique ability to play a stand-out supporting role.  In the newly designed Lakewood Flooring boutique showroom on Canberra’s Kingston Foreshore,  Paul Tilse Architects has used its featured product to create sophisticated and playful timber displays such as ceiling battens and fused geometric window boxes. Then, as a clever contrast to the timber forms, a central point-of-sale counter created from Fibonacci Stone’s Moon Garden slabs provides a spectacular yet almost ‘neutral’ base from which the timber grains can be examined and appreciated.

“We love the timelessness of terrazzo and feel that it injects pattern and colour to uplift any environment, so we really encouraged our client to use Moon Garden as we felt that this particular design worked back well with the timber throughout the showroom,” says Vanessa Hawes, interior designer on the project.  “The playfulness of the pattern and the counter design itself also reflected the fun way we used timber flooring to create different shapes throughout the store.  I had no doubt that it was the right stone for this project from conception and was very pleased with the result, as was the client.”

 

“Fibonacci Stone has been our choice on a few of our projects – we specified Eventide for the floors at our Damiani Orthopaedic project and Deep Vault on a kitchen renovation,” says Vanessa.  “We love using their stone because the product is beautiful, readily available, and the samples are quickly accessed.  This makes it easy to convince the client of how interesting it is – and most fall in love with it immediately.”
