Wild Outdoor

An outdoor lava stone shower for a private villa. The pumice finish enables the stone to be perceived as highly organic and natural, and mean that it can be perfectly integrated into the surrounding garden. Our natural stone masonry is 100% recyclable, for sustainable facades and outdoor claddings, patios, and paths.

Step into a wildlife garden can take you in a dreamlike dimension.
This has been our first feeling while visiting the place for our last outdoor application: an outdoor lava stone shower that has been requested for a private villa.
Our client asked for an outdoor stone shower cladding which could integrate into the project of the wild garden, a protective barrier that had to embrace and wrap around his residence.
The wildlife garden was prosecuted for promoting biodiversity and native plantings, and a general planted-by-nature effect.
Given that premise, we introduced a peculiar finish for the project: the pumice lava stone.
The pumice lava stone is for sure the most distinctive texture of our lava stone natural finishes.
It is requested when the natural rough look is to be enhanced, as in this project of a stone application which could integrate into the wild surrounding.
We submitted the idea to the client, who felt in love with this stone, where the volcanic origin is so and preciously preserved.

The lower environmental impact of a natural stone masonry

Our lava stone finishes are natural volcanic stones, 100% recyclable, with a limited production wastes, and highly competitive for sustainable facades and outdoor claddings and furniture.

The finishing process

The pumice finish enables the application to be perceived as organic and natural, and the surface, which can be further processed by sandblasting, is sometimes not worked upon at all, as just highly distinctive by nature! Under the projects, our craftsmen carry out a mechanical brushing to vary the shades of gray or brown:

The outdoor pumice shower

For this outdoor application, our stone workers extracted the pieces from the rectangular block of stone and roughed out into a desired size and thickness with the help of an electric grinder and pointed chisels by the stonemason, shaped out to enhance the effect of the natural rock and provide the requested wild look.
