In the ensuite bathroom, the variety of tile finishes adds a textural element to the space. The eight by 48-inch porcelain tile is in three finishes, polished, natural and rullato (a matte finish incorporating slightly raised features). The different finishes are installed in equal amounts, but in a random order, to create an interesting feature in the space.
The building will have more than 13,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, including a landscaped courtyard on the fifth floor with a barbecue, harvest table, lounge seating and a children’s play area.
There is also a fitness facility with a yoga room, a theatre space and a party room that opens onto the courtyard. Loma also offers a conference room and private work areas in a professional business centre plus a parcel delivery room.
