MIAMI, FL — Laticrete played a major role in providing tile and stone installation materials for a recently completed stone and glass mosaic fountain in Miami, FL.

Located in the front lobby area of the 6100 Office Building in Miami’s Blue Lagoon Business District, the fountain won the award for Best Commercial Stone Design in the 2012 Coverings Installation and Design (CID) Awards, a program honoring achievement in the outstanding use of materials and the synergy between installation and design. The CID Awards were given out last month during the Coverings 2012 trade show in Orlando.

The natural stone and glass mosaic tile project was designed by Inaki Muguruza of Miami-based Insight Design. Overall construction and tile and stonework were handled by Gemini Stoneworks, a family owned-and-operated, custom stone fabrication and tile installation firm. “The fountain we built fits right in with the world-class surroundings of the Blue Lagoon District,” said Tony Blanco, President of Gemini Stoneworks. “We used Laticrete® Hydro Ban™, Laticrete® 254 Platinum, Laticrete SpectraLock® Pro Premium Grout and Laticrete Latasil™ to help us get the job done correctly.”
