CTD adds surface style to the Portavadie Spa & Leisure Complex

October 2018

Situated in a picturesque village overlooking Loch Fyne on the west coast of Scotland, the Portavadie Spa & Leisure Complex is a world-class retreat.  Working closely with the specifier Stewart Associates, CTD Architectural Tiles were chosen to supply tiles to this luxury development. Installation was undertaken by The Tiling Company (Northern).  Maintaining quality throughout, the brief for the project was to create a seamless and harmonious flow between the interior and the landscape.

A light-filled modern facility offering a feeling of serenity and calm, the Spa features a number of wet areas.  This made it was vital to use a tile range that offered the correct level of anti-slip resistance while maintaining the modern aesthetic.  CTD Granus, a porcelain tile range with a vein cut stone look in 18 sizes, and 18 colours in natural, structured, bush hammered, honed and polished finish was used throughout.  The CTD Sistem N porcelain tile range with its neutral colour palette also helps to set the tranquil mood whilst being durable and aesthetically pleasing. This range also has excellent technical properties and achieves +36 PTV on the natural finish.

The superb infinity pool and hydro pools were created using the System 9 pool product which consists of a prefabricated pool edging piece formed by waterproof concrete blocks. Each piece works as a channel and support for the overlaid tiles.
