An urban style bathroom for the Black House on the Isle of Skye, by Ceramiche Keope

On the Isle of Skye, one of the most beautiful natural landscapes of Scotland, the Black House is an exclusive residence designed by Dualchas Architects, which for the bathroom has chosen the surfaces of Ceramiche Keope, a company of reference in the production of floors and facings in porcelain stoneware.

The project has been selected as one of the finalists in the House of the Year 2019 competition of the Royal Institute of British Architects. Nestled on a rocky portion of the coast, this box on two levels, with geometric lines, is inspired by the local black houses, the traditional rural constructions in dark wood found on the island. Fitting perfectly into the natural setting, this outstanding work of architecture offers a marvelous view.

Inside this residence in minimalist style, the walls and floors of the bathroom are clad in the Moov collection by Ceramiche Keope in the gray finish, with a square format of 45x45 cm. The materials, forms and colors of the construction, an ultra-contemporary summary of new natural and industrial imagery, interact with the porcelain stoneware tiles: the concrete effect adds an underground atmosphere to the dwelling.

Thanks to the soft graphic impact, the wide range of formats and finishes, the Moov concrete-effect collection is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, in residences and commercial settings, guaranteeing maximum design freedom.
