BE­SPOKE CON­CRETE

Condé Nast House & Garden - - DESIGN NOTES -

The out­door shower is po­si­tioned in a pri­vate, wedge-shaped court­yard. ‘cast con­crete as a ma­te­rial has a per­ma­nence about it, a sculp­tural mo­ment frozen in time,’ says sil­vio. ‘The tex­ture of the con­crete is the neg­a­tive im­print of the shut­ter­ing used to cre­ate it. In this case we chose to use sand­blasted pine as shut­ter­ing. a sec­ond layer of tex­ture was added in a mod­ernist way in the form of rec­tan­gu­lar bands to re­flect the light and cre­ate in­ter­est in the con­crete com­po­si­tion. The con­crete for­mula was light sand and se­lected stone by Métier.’
