MRA Architects had in mind a white and black marble chequerboard in a large format (900x900x20mm) for the refurbishment of a fashion retail outlet on Regent Street namely Juicy Couture.
Time was of the essence so we booked a trip to Italy for the architect to find the right material. The architect had requested the whitest white and the black with minimal veins.
After spending the afternoon in various yards and factories we located material perfect for the project. The slabs were still only sawn but with a splash of water we could see the Carrara Gioia located and a Chinese Nero Marquina were good to go. We popped back to see the cut honed tiles before packing and it was clear this was going to be a very striking floor
