Vintage mansion renovationI will summarize the materials used in.This time, we will talk about walls, floors, and ceilings. (The photo is Hakuryu + shellfish plaster)
｜ Shell ash plaster
Plaster is used for the ceiling and walls of each private room. In a word, plaster has a wide variety of products. However, most of them do not completely disclose the components, and a small amount of synthetic resin or adhesive is mixed in to improve workability.
I wanted to stick to natural materials as much as possible, so at first I considered scallop plaster as a product with completely understandable ingredients, but it was costly, and finally adopted a stucco made by burning Ariake red shellfish. did. This is an ancient Japanese material surrounded by the sea, called shell ash plaster. Currently, most of the plaster is slaked lime (lime) made from limestone, but shell lime stucco is less waterproof than lime, but it has large particles, it is hard to crack, and it has high humidity control. There are features that are suitable.
The product is from one of the few well-established shellfish ash specialists in Tajima Kaiash Factory in Fukuoka Prefecture. The production method is the same as the old method, and it is made entirely of natural materials, such as white ash, susa recycled from hemp bags, and ginkgo biloba from the Sea of Japan side. It is a natural material that has a deodorizing effect and is safe, yet the material cost is as low as 300-400 yen per square meter. It has been used in temples, shrines and temples since ancient times. In KantoEco organic house Is an agency.

｜ Egg wall light (cross)
Some ceilings were crossed. Instead of using ordinary vinyl cloth, we used egg wall light, a natural product made by crushing and recycling egg shells from the Mayonnaise plant in Kewpie. The main component is calcium carbonate like plaster, so it also has humidity control.
The rough expression resembles a painted wall instead of the so-called vinyl cloth texture. Although it has a good texture, it has a lot of stretch and shrinkage, which makes construction a little difficult. I think the ceiling is a better material to use than the walls because it is rough.
｜ Oriental carpet
Living wool carpets are from Oriental carpets of top Japanese manufacturers.The feature of this manufacturer is that even small lots of this size can be dyed in any color by custom order. Since there is no subtle color in ready-made products, it is useful to stick to such a delicate order when sticking to color. Be careful when ordering because it takes time.
In Japan, the floor finish is often made of wood flooring, and honest carpets are not popular because they have an unsanitary image.
However, in fact, the flooring and the floor of the tiles, dust rises every time you walk, worsening the indoor air environment. The particles float in the room for several hours before falling.
In comparison, carpets temporarily absorb dust and prevent them from flying into space. The dust can be easily removed with a vacuum cleaner. In other words, carpet has the effect of keeping the air clean and is recommended for hay fever and allergy countermeasures.
It is warm in winter, cool in summer, and has thermal insulation, so it has a high energy saving effect, is comfortable with bare feet, and is suitable for the Japanese lifestyle that often sits on the floor.

｜ Italian stucco
Living and corridor walls use traditional Italian stucco. The product is a product called ERA VENEZIANA of a company called Fresco Japan.
Although the texture is difficult to understand in the photo, the unevenness of the gloss and the shade of the color are beautiful, and the marble powder is contained, so the fine texture is finished like a stone.
Here you can also customize the color, so you can specify a subtle hue.

｜ Glass block
The fluctuating light transmission of the glass block is attractive, but tends to be a solid image of a square grid. So, this time, I inserted a half-size glass block at random to create a soft look. The used product is Pegasus series of SEVES of Italy, and sales and construction were commissioned to Nippon Electric Glass, the only glass block manufacturer in Japan.
(The glass block has a soft atmosphere with no grit. A bright room can be seen from the entrance.)
