Product Used: Aparici's Moving Porcelain Tiles - Encaustic Collections
The planning site (D23) is situated in the southwest area of the Seestadt Aspern /1220 Vienna. The three building sections with 4 to 5 stories and a total of fifty homes are the first freely financed condominiums in this suburb. French windows, brick construction and spaciously dimensioned balconies and terraces ensure an amenable home feeling and revive almost forgotten qualities in housing.
A special highlight of the project is formed by the colorfully ornamented Aparici cement tiles in the stairwell. Inspired by the aesthetic and tradition of (Viennese) Jugendstil / Art Nouveau, the modernist design radiates its own unique aura and identification potential for the residents.
Moving Tiles is one of the lines of Aparici's Encaustic Collections. The collection includes a range of R10 high-quality decorative porcelain tiles that are designed to add depth and pattern. These technical porcelain tiles are available in size 30x30 cm. and suitable for many applications in commercial and residential interiors, including wet rooms.
