Travertine

TRAVERTINE

In the history of architecture, travertine occupies an important place. Famously used in the design of the Roman Colosseum, the material still garners admiration for its hard-wearing qualities and fits seamlessly into the language of longevity, accompanying other robust materials such as brick and concrete. The Getty Center in California is one of the most notable contemporary designs to use the material.

 

What is Travertine?

Travertine is a form of limestone found at the mouths of hot springs and limestone caves. It forms its distinctive fibrous appearance in the calcium-rich water, where it is also given its calming and neutral colouration.
