This tile piece was recently installed in the lobby of the parking garage for 1706 Rittenhouse Square Street, luxury condos in Philadelphia, PA. The piece is 78″ wide x 138″ high, glazed in turquoise. The piece is mounted on a limestone wall, which really sets off the turquoise color.
We took a lot of time to find the right design that would please everyone, and add to the sophistication of the space. Each tile is mounted to a 2.5″ thick plywood box mounted on the back with security hardware so the tiles are immovable. Because the alcove is 15″ thick, we wanted to pull the tiles away from the wall so they felt truly architectural as well as graphically stunning yet restful.
The result is soothing and yet at the same time enlivens the space.
