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 caters to both students and the local community. The new establishment offers a “home-style diner classic” feel and features ingredients from local farmers and makers from across Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley and Pocono Mountains. BKP Architects strived to deliver a sustainable and inviting design.

Stone World and Contemporary Stone & Tile Design magazine highlighted the project in an April 2022 article and interview with Caitlin Daley, AIA. 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 defines circulation and is reflected in the acoustical wood slat ceiling.
