More about this product

Mosa Terra Maestricht collection was used for the interior design of a healthcare facility in Wisconsin. The project, the ProHealth Care UW Cancer Center, was in charge of CannonDesign architects and completed in 2014. Heather Clinger, from the architecture office, explained the crucial need for thoughtful design in a patient care environment where patients and their caregivers will visit up to 100 times during the course of treatment; 'ProHealth had a very strong patient group that especially focused on the infusion center; they wanted it to be more open and more social, with areas to stop and rest. Also having things contiguous and sequence-based, with a level of discovery and surprise so the newness factor won’t wear off' -says Clinger. They also consulted with a “Whole Person Health Design Team” comprised of ProHealth Care staffers.

ProHealth Care Cancer Treatment Facility, Wisconsin | CannonDesign architects

Once the objectives became clear, Cannon set about finding the right design solutions and materials to create this treatment facility. These included:

  • Warmth: one solution for rest and social areas was Cannon’s integration of fireplaces, with feature walls of Mosa tiles.
  • Play of light: the designers chose interesting materials that vary by time of day and angle of view; Mosa’s Terra Tones, with varying shades and depths helped create this dynamic. The color of the product imitated the light change, adding to the dimensionality.
  • Organic look: Mosa tiles helped them achieve it and refelct natural landscape, because the tile changes even within the pattern. No two are alike.
  • Precision and Resiliance: Cannon needed flooring that could hold up to the salt-heavy Wisconsin winters and be smooth under daily wheelchair use. Mosa’s precise face dimension and rectified edges allowed for smoothness and minimal grout joints, and above-standard slip resistance rendered everything safe.

A final but very important factor guided the choice of the architects: Mosa is the first and only C2C certified porcelain tile. The designer also chose other finish brands with sustainability including Interface for carpeted areas, sign of their sustainable criterias. Cannon has also selected Mosa tiles for other important projects including Huntingdon Hospital and an education design in New Jersey, the Rutgers University Life Science project.
