Business Description
Klopf Architecture brings the outside in. Our firm creates warm, modern designs that admit natural light and allow openness to nature.

I would like to know what the product in blue is. Stucco? fiber board? Are there seams? If so how is water kept out? Thanks

It is stucco, and there really isn't a need for seams (control joints) on such a small application. Even with stucco that has control joints, the water is not kept our by the stucco, but by a water-proof layer below the stucco.

Where would you purchases these tiles from? In the US only, or do they sell them in Canada?

I don't know the exact dimension of the furniture layout, but we usually recommend a MINIMUM of 36" between countertop and couch, but it would be more comfortable at 4 feet or even 5 if you have the space.
