Handed down through the centuries via the Venetian Renaissance, Palladiana Terrazzo Mosaic floors belong to a tradition of artistic excellence. Regarded as one of the best building materials for floors, Palladiana Terrazzo tiles are still laid directly on site by our highly specialised craftsmen.
Today, with the partial introduction of concrete and the use of electric grinders, production has become much faster and affordable. Palladiana Terrazzo flooring is an interpretation of the typical Ancient Roman technique, using irregular-shaped pieces, and made directly on site from a variety of stone and aggregate; crafted by hand utilising various shapes and colours, using a small hammer. The spaces are then sealed with grout, or our own custom Terrazzo mix – depending upon the design. Once hardened, the entire floor is mechanically ground, honed or polished, then sealed with a protective penetrating sealer, which brings out the patterns and colours of the materials used.
Given the variety of aggregates and marbles available in today’s market, there are an infinite number of colour options, sizes, and shapes to achieve your décor result.
