Tradition is fundamental to Italian culture. Whether it be how grandparents made ragu or something simpler like which butcher they would always buy from. Like these essential components of Italian lifestyle, Terrazzo tiling is a case of tradition.
The first recorded history of the Terrazzo tile can be traced back to Venice over 600 years ago. Back then, quarry workers would take marble offcuts home and use them to create their own floors. This was achieved by setting the offcuts into a sand and cement mortar. Initially, these practises were not perfect, but as the method evolved, Terrazzo became the flooring tradition of choice.
Continuing this cultural tradition, since 1997, Best Bricks & Pavers has been producing Terrazzo flooring solutions. While our Terrazzo tiles were initially designed for external use, our products are also capable of being used as an internal, flooring tile. Our Terrazzo products have been used nationwide and are helping preserve the historic importance of the Terrazzo tile.
The tradition of Terrazzo
Speaking of tradition, since 1884, King and Godfree (located on the historically Italian Lygon Street) has been offering the locals of Melbourne a “celebration” of Italian culture. Whether it be a cup of espresso, or a delicious bowl of home-made pasta, King and Godfree’s continuation of tradition is sure to make any Italian feel at home. We were honoured to lay our 400x400 Terrazzo Clinica White Honed and Terrazzo Gris Perle Honed products to King and Godfree’s awe-inspiring rooftop bar. These products were laid on a revolutionary pedestal paving pod, allowing positive drainage and flawless paving lines.
On request, Best can calibrate Terrazzo pavers, allowing for an easy, and spotless laying process. Our products help communicate the simple, refined and yet elegant, environment King and Godfree are creating for their patrons. The subject of much praise, the rooftop bar offers some of the best wine, spirits and meals in Melbourne, including a beautiful, 360-degree view of the city.
