Description

Steeped in a proud history dating back to the Edwardian era, the majestic Porchester Spa has been returned to its former glory following a highly sensitive and complex refurbishment project. Photography by Philip Vile Photography


Requirement

Porchester Spa required floor tiles in the slab room, wet treatment space, shower and steam rooms, hot and warm ciruclation areas and scrub room. The project also saw Solus' tiles installed on the walls in the steam room and vanity area.


Tiles Used

Graian, Tatra and Dauphine tiles from the Mountain range and Dawen and Hesket from the Diffusion range.


Outcome

The 90-year-old Grade II* listed Porchester Spa offers visitors a truly unique experience where they can relax and enjoy a range of facilities including traditional Turkish hot rooms, Russian steam rooms and a plunge pool.

The basement spa has been given a fresh look with Solus’ stunning terrazzo Graian, Tatra and Dauphine tiles from the Mountain range laid in the slab room, wet treatment space, shower and steam rooms, hot and warm circulation areas and scrub room.

The contrasting colours of charcoal featuring white veins, cream with peach and fawn detail and green with dark flecks, respectively, offer a contemporary alternative to the original flooring while their textured nature ensures compliance with HSE guidelines for wet areas.

Diffusion’s bright white Dawen tiles adorn the walls in the steam room while the striking emerald green of Hesket, from the same range, creates mid-height and ceiling borders.
