Khoury Architects is a practice of highly creative and imaginative architects committed to designing contemporary and sustainable spaces and places. Offering architectural and interior design services from its office in Stourbridge since 2005, Khoury Architects works closely with clients to produce creative, practical and cost-effective designs which bring out the optimum relationship between clients’ needs and the potential of their sites.
So, the opportunity to design a contemporary house on an exceptional site in the Green Belt overlooking the market town of Abingdon in Oxfordshire was the perfect fit for the RIBA award winning practice who created a stunningly modern 3 bedroom new build home.
Hailed as ‘exceptional’ and the ‘best scheme in 20 years’ by local planning departments the project maximises the 270 degree panoramic view, delivers on a high standard of environmental performance and integrates landscape and courtyard spaces transitioning between inside and outside spaces seamlessly.
Khoury Architects chose Rock Revelations to supply large format porcelain tiling to 3 floors across hallway and half landing. The expansive area is beautifully light and airy and this has been enhanced by forming the feature staircase in the same large format tiles as the flooring.
In order to satisfy the clients close attention to detail, Rock Revelations formed the stair treads and risers by mitring the porcelain tiles. In addition to this Rock also mitred and formed the glass balustrade cladding to finish the overall design perfectly.
“The provision and installation of porcelain tiling by Rock Revelations was exactly what was required to deliver the concept of a thoroughly modern and aesthetically pleasing home. The mitred tiling enhances the detailed design and helps create a high impact hallway where definition between the inside and external courtyard is minimised. We would not hesitate to recommend Rock Revelations, not only for its superior product, but also for its adherence to brief and professionalism.”
