Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, this polished concrete floor was patterned with some stunning detail and colour.
2004 – Early days of Polished Concrete
To start the slab was seeded with green and blue bottle glass. The cured slab was heavily ground to expose the glass and stone, honed to 100 grit and densified. The floor was then mapped out with an extremely detailed pattern that was inspired by a Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass window. The motif was carried throughout all the rooms in the basement, and coloured to mimic the glass. The floor was then polished to 400 grit, for a semi gloss finish. The Cobblestone residence was a new-construction project of an 8,000 square foot custom home in Broadmead. This award winning home includes an elevator, dual master bedrooms, an indoor/outdoor fireplace, fully automated smart wiring, and fine-crafted millwork. This project received two Silver Care Awards. The home was awarded Best Single Family Custom Home over 4,500 sq. ft. and Best Kitchen (New or Renovated over 300 sq. ft.) PATTERSON & KAERCHER CONSTRUCTION LTD.
The project goes way back to 2004. Robyn Bryson reached out to Victoria Stone Design to collaborate on creative polished concrete creation. The colours were the only product available at the time as companies like Ameripolish and others were not even around.
