AHR applies innovative biophilic design principles at The Spine building
For the northern home of The Royal College of Physicians, AHR Architects was tasked with creating a building that leaves its occupants healthier.
British tile manufacturer Johnson Tiles has extended its popular Kerastar range of commercial tiles.
Kerastar from Johnson Tiles is a harmonious range of through-body, unglazed porcelain wall and floor tiles that combines 70% recycled content, commercial endurance and architectural elegance.
The range now includes floor and wall tiles in a variety of bright and vibrant tones, shapes and structured finishes that are designed to coexist in harmony together. Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, the extended collection comprises 43 shades, 11 sizes, 4 finishes, 4 structures and 3 shapes for maximum creativity.
Suitable for use both indoors and out, each shade is available in a selection of textured structures that achieve a PTV slip resistance rating of 36+ in both dry and wet areas.
The through-body porcelain tiles are well-suited to high-traffic areas including busy retail, hospitality, workplace and healthcare environments – the material and colour run all the way through the tile so scratches, chips and signs of wear are easily blended or hidden.
Kerastar’s existing architectural-friendly neutral colour palette has been bolstered with the addition of cool greys, warm reds and burnt oranges to establish zones or create patterns across interior schemes. Classic tones such as Clay offer the perfect base upon which to build pops of colour such as Sage, Sky and Terracotta that reflect the brighter hues found in nature.
As the popularity of geometric shapes continues to surge, a selection of shades within the Kerastar collection are now available in two hexagonal shapes. Small and large format square and rectangular styles are also available, offering premium versatility and choice.
Fittings within this range include battiscopa and cove skirtings along with steptreads, making Kerastar the ideal flooring solution for commercial specifications.
