The RHS Flower Show will be taking place in Cardiff this coming weekend, and we're pleased to announce that our Quartz porcelain paving will be making an appearance in one of the show gardens! Local garden designer Robert Hughes will be using our paving slabs to make his innovative 'Office Box' design a reality - here's a sneak preview of how it will look:
 
Office Box garden
 
'Office Box' was conceived as a luxurious outdoor workspace; Robert is aiming to create a relaxing garden office that could be used when working from home on warm days. Our Quartz paving will be surrounded by a picturesque pond (a very nice touch, we think!), and tropical-style plants, while the garden's overall feel will emphasise simplicity and a contemporary atmosphere.
 
Robert's RHS flyer states that "porcelain paving creates a smooth, modern and elegant feel", and we couldn't agree more - we think that our contemporary yet classical Quartz paving is the perfect choice for this very original design.

The RHS Flower Show will take place in Bute Park, Cardiff, from the 17th to the 19th of April. Tickets are available from the RHS website.
 

Update - Friday 17th April:

 
The 'Office Box' garden is now complete, and we're pleased to announce that Robert has won Silver Gilt for his efforts! Congratulations to Robert and the team, who put together a truly beautiful space:

Our elegant porcelain paving products are perfect for architectural projects, and if you don't want to take our word for it, perhaps a vote of confidence from one of the UK's leading architecture resources will convince you. For the last twenty years, the Architects Datafile magazine has provided Britain's architects with invaluable information and a variety of thought-provoking articles, and we're pleased to report that our beautiful porcelain tiles were recently featured on their website.

The piece is entitled Porcelain Tiles for Outside & In! and you can read it by clicking on that link. The article covers both Out 2.0 paving and our In.Out 1.0 porcelain tiles, giving architects an impression of the beauty and versatility our products can provide. Porcelain is a great choice for interiors and landscapes alike - offices, gardens, homes, parks, and public buildings could all benefit from the inimitable look of our porcelain tiles and paving.

If you're an architect, and you would like to find out more about what we can offer your project, feel free to get in touch. Email info@porcelainpaving.co.uk or telephone 029 2037 1584 to discuss your requirements and request a quote. Our porcelain experts will help to create the perfect solution for you and your client.

Along with the planning, designing, and constructing of a building, architects are also very much interested in how it will look afterwards. Not just in terms of structural integrity, but in terms of a more artistic view of beauty. Patio slabs play an important role in the overall appearance of a building; not only can they be used as indoor flooring, but the role they play in the outside area is particularly crucial.

The reason we say this is because your slabs will take centre-stage outdoors, what with there being fewer décor-distractions in a garden than indoors. This definitely puts an added pressure on really nailing the outdoor flooring, and this is where Porcelain Paving comes in! Architects really want to make a statement every time they complete a property, and our patio slabs allow them to do this!

Our manufacturers have the technological ability to make beautiful patio slabs that retain all the benefits of porcelain. Using various techniques we can recreate the identical shades, tones, and finish you get with the most desirable of stone paving slabs. As they are man-made though you also get a precision, consistency, and engineered-feel that you won’t find with natural stones. This all makes our patio slabs a very tantalising offer for the style-savvy architect!

It is not just a ‘statement’ property that could benefit from using porcelain; they may sound like a specialised material to some, but as we explained earlier they are made to look like more recognisable forms of flooring. These patio slabs have a large scope for application in landscape architecture, whether it to be to grace the patio of a traditional property, or to adorn the balcony of a minimalist apartment. The range of colours we stock caters to all styles and tastes – meaning no slab has been left unturned.

It’s looking good for our architects: in porcelain they have a slightly more interesting proposition than bog-standard stone; these slabs have the aesthetic-merit to match the finest of stone, with a reassurance you only get from hi-tech manmade materials. And we haven’t even got to the best bit yet – these tiles are going to carry on looking their best!

It’s all very well having beautiful patio slabs laid, but if in a short time their finish becomes blotted by water damage and stains, your efforts have been wasted. Where we think architects will really take favour with our paving is with its strength and durability. Due to the high temperatures it’s baked at, along with it being impervious to water, and the increased thickness of an already strong material, our porcelain is strong enough to be used in commercial areas – even those subjected to heavily pedestrianized foot-traffic! In a residential property our slabs are going to keep looking pristine for an age – this means the architect’s vision can enjoy some serious longevity!

Architects will enjoy the alluring-aesthetics of our porcelain slabs, along with their versatile range. They’ll also be won over by the quality and durability, meaning you both can enjoy this beautiful flooring for years to come.

Our porcelain tiles are great for the back garden, but that doesn't mean that you can’t dream a little bigger for them. We’re great admirers of beautiful landscapes, and we’re thrilled by the prospect of our porcelain tiles being used by a landscape architect.

Landscape architecture is the art of designing outdoor spaces for public consumption. This includes parks, playgrounds, urban spaces, forecourts, and all kinds of other spaces. And while we don’t want to toot our own horn, we think that our porcelain paving would be pretty perfect for any of these environments! 

A paved area can lend depth and appeal to almost any area. Imagine a verdant green park with a porcelain-paved path running through it, or a bustling, metropolitan forecourt in front of a grand, towering hotel.

We are more than happy to work alongside landscape architects to make these creations a reality. If you work in the landscaping business, get in touch today to discuss your requirements – call 029 2037 1584 or email info@porcelainpaving.co.uk for a chat with one of our friendly porcelain experts. We can’t wait to see the amazing designs you’ve come up with!
