Ultimate floorfillers

Eyes down for the winter issue of Concrete Quarterly (produced by my company Wordmule for the Concrete Centre), which has a special focus on floors. There is a humbling variety of finishes on offer, from many shades of matt or polished, to sandblasted, acid-etched or (my favourite) diamond polished to reveal the beauty of the stones within. Also in this issue: a house in the Welsh countryside where expanses of highly polished concrete floor reflect the brooding skies above, and a BREEAM Excellent Hindu temple, designed and pre-cast in India and built in Brent – very definitely a world first.
