Jungle House by Marcio Kogan
This 65 meter long house in the dense tropical forests of Campos do Jordão- Brazil integrates the beautiful surroundings with a holiday-home made of natural material. Our Anthracite-Black slate is used as flooring, fireplace surrounding and swimming pool cladding.
The absence of almost any calcium in our slate makes our material one of the most durable natural stones in the world, with highest resistance for de-colourifying by weather influence or any acids of cleaning products.
The natural split surface is smooth but highly anti-slippery.
In many countries it is used for public access swimming pools, tested up to R11 in anti-slip.
Due to these characteristics, our slate is often used for swimming-pools, bathrooms, spa’s, and terraces.
