Another Tile On The Wall

Ceramic tile, from the bathroom floor, all the way up the outside wall.

Why not?



  1. Outdoor tiles are one of my favourite things in Iberian construction. They make buildings more distinguishable and give them a more unique feel. I seem to have developed a borderline-unhealthy fascination with these tiles and photograph hem wherever I see them (the farthest I got was Vietnam). Whenever I go back to Portugal I go nuts!

    Their use is in decline and I find it a shame.

    1. Agreed. They are so distinctive, but unfortunately you never see new examples. There are few like this still in our old downtown and when these buildings are remodelled I doubt they will remain.
