John Henshaw Architect Inc. was invited to participate this year in Taste of Life’s 2015 Luxury Home Design Show held at the Vancouver Convention Center. They were partnered up with Teragon Developments and Robinson Lighting & Bath Centre and designed a master ensuite spa like environment.
They use the following Julian Tile products for the shower booth:
- GW412 – 4x12 Classic White Glossy $4.17 sqf
- LGICWOO - Cerwood 6x23.5 White Oak $7.49 sqf (being phased out)
The Protoshop by Lamborghini is the first multi-storey industrial building in Italy in Class A: it covers an area of almost 5,000 m2 and was designed for the famous vehicle manufacturer to house its “Prototypes and Pre-series” department.
The project is the work of the Prospazio team of architects of Modena, who chose the ultra-slim (3.5 mm thick) and big size (3m x 1m) Slimtech slabs by Lea Ceramiche for the covering of the ventilated façade.
Lea Slimtech is ideal for the construction of low energy buildings because it is 100% eco-compatible; it releases less pollution into the atmosphere, makes the most efficient use of natural resources, achieving savings in transport and packaging, creating less production waste and optimizing its energy performance.

Step By Step Installation
The wedi Fundo Riolito is a unique and fully prefabricated tileable unit featuring linear or channel drains. Water drains away through a narrow gap between the cover plate and adjacent tiling. The wedi Fundo Riolio shower drain can be installed with wedi® Building Panels and Curbs to guarantee a waterproof assembly.
The Riolito offers three cover plate options for the integrated channel drain, each made of high quality stainless steel. By adjusting cover plate height, the Fundo Riolito can be combined with nearly any tile or natural stone surface, in a range of thicknesses from 1/4” to 1/2” for the Standard or Deluxe channel covers and from 1/4” to 3/4“ for the tileable channel cover. The Riolito includes a drain set that can be glued to a 2” pipe (ending 1-1/8” below floor top surface) using solvent cement glue.
The Riolito is a great solution to enable homeowners, designers and installers to take bath design into the future. Fully tested for superior performance, this system is the ideal blend of innovation and practical application.
- The drainage rate is 16 gal/minute.
- The prefabricated slope is 1⁄4 in/ft.
- Even large-format tiles can be used in the thinbed process. Fundo Riolito has a true level slope and is ideal where ADA requirements should be met.

Project Homeworks has been working in the White Rock - South Surrey area since it began in 2000. Business partners Sylvia Shury and Cyndi Scholz began with their first project, a Providence Homes Lottery House. From there their business took off and they have never looked back, doing residential new homes, as well being involved in major renovations of existing homes. Along the way they also included a few more lottery houses as well as show homes.
The residence in High Point was an interesting project just given the vast size of it. The scale of every detail ramps up, while still striving to maintain the key point that it is a home. The members of the family had a mix of traditional and contemporary tastes so to find the centre point for them was also key. For example we used several traditional tiles, some with a more contemporary twist, and switched up the applications in each of the ensuites to suit each family member.
Kudos to our rep., Silveria, for ferreting out the huge, beautiful Creme Marfil (sp) tile for the main ares of the home. Definitely a breath- taking winner!
This is a very elegant new home in Vancouver built by Harjinder from Best Value Construction. Maria Magagnin - from Julian Tile helped select the material and coordinate the delivery of the tiles for the project.
Tiles used in this project:
- Marble Bianco Venatino Gioia
- Gen Series
- Marble Berkshire
- Marble Bianco
- Glass Mini Strips
- Storm Porcelain Series
Innovative, beautiful and unique, these vanities at the Georgian Court Hotel designed by Louis Araujo from LDA Design used Julian Tile Petrus Pebbles and Evolution Series, setting them into the marble countertop to ‘extend’ the backsplash.
Sharra Conrad from
Homedge in Grande Prairie sent us beautiful pictures of some projects featuring Julian Tile natural stones and porcelain tile.
The main objective while designing and building this elegant home was to make a large home liveable, where the key spaces felt connected and to create intimate moments and spaces which reflected the homeowners eclectic style.
