Studio 804 and Diamond Tech Tiles Explore Architectural Solutions for the Future

Share Article

Diamond Tech Tiles joins with Studio 804 to provide students with critical knowledge that prepares them for their future work as young architects in a rapidly changing and challenging profession.

There comes a time when you are given the opportunity to be part of something worthwhile. Such was the case this year when Diamond Tech Tiles was asked to be a part of the 2009 Architectural Project for Studio 804.

Studio 804 is a design/build program at the University of Kansas School of Architecture and Urban Planning. As a final, single semester comprehensive experience, Studio 804 provides students with critical knowledge that prepares them for their future work as young architects in a rapidly changing and challenging profession. The vehicle for this experience is the design and development of an affordable building. Students explore and develop architectural solutions that promote efficiency, sustainability, and creative use of materials.

This year's project was a single-family residence in the community of Rosedale in Kansas City at 3716 Springfield. Diamond Tech Tiles was proud to be a part of this project by providing glass tile for their bathroom installation. They choose the Platinum Series, a semi-transparent mosaic glass tile distinguished for its special light reflective surface. This 9/16" x 9/16" (1.5 cm x 1.5 cm) tile helped the students create a dramatic, ever changing surface effect that contrasted nicely with the ultra modern black and glass walls.
