This small space was the perfect place to design and install this live edge desk. We kept both sides of the edge intact and back filled with concrete to create a smooth edge along the rear of the desk. Wall brackets were used to hang the unit in place- and it can be easily removed and installed in another location in minutes!
Here’s just -some- of the textures that can be created with concrete, applications are totally endless…..
The existing waterfall had not been used in over a year, and leaked pretty bad. We first created a new smooth layer over the existing slate tiles, then waterproofed the entire wall and side returns. Once watertight, we added layer upon layer of Tadelakt lime plaster- the very plaster used in Moroccan architecture for their elaborate spas. We used our own style by using multiple colours in a vertical application adding to the look of the falling water. Very pleased with the end result!
