Reply To: Terrazzo [was Meath Hospital]
It’s funny – I’ve long been an admirer of hospitals from the 30’s/50’s. All those clean horizintal lines and lots of light. They’re often made of very nice narrow brick too.
I especially like the man-made coloured conglomerate floors which you often see in old schools and other state buildings. I like the way it’s sturdily molded and curves up onto the base of the walls. Presumably to eliminate corner-loving germs. Easy to clean too. I reckon my ideal home will have that material [what is it? How is it laid?] and also those small square ceramic tiles, liberty hall, Busarus, hospitals and strangely enough [don’t kill me… it’s the only feature I like] Hawkins House!
