An apartment complex in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood, The Piazza features
an impressive outdoor pool area called The Cove, with unique architectural features
constructed by the design team at Post Brothers – a local residential development company.
Towering angular structures clad with gauged porcelain tile panels in a concrete-effect style from
Mirage define the perimeter of the pool deck, which is covered with matching tiles from the
same collection. This decision to coordinate the pavers with the tile-clad structures surrounding
the pool created seamless continuity throughout the entire space, allowing the designers to
achieve the desired monolithic look. Mirage tiles offer both safety and durability in this
demanding outdoor environment.
