Porcelain Floor Tile Reinforces Sustainable Design
published April 18, 2022
The Trolley Stop recently opened its doors on the campus of Lafayette College in Easton, PA, and the full-service restaurant is not only for students. The new establishment, which also welcomes the local community, offers a “home-style diner classic” feel and features ingredients from local farmers and makers from across Pennsylvania’s Leigh Valley and Pocono Mountains. The design team at BKP Architects P.C. of Philadelphia, PA, strived to deliver a sustainable and inviting design.
A standout of the restaurant design is the floor pattern, consisting of black and white porcelain tile. The design team chose Crossville Retro Active 2.0 solid colored tiles, as well as half black/half gray tiles from Stone Peak’s Palazzo collection. The floor pattern assists to define circulation and is reflected in the acoustical wood slat ceiling above.
